We will enjoy 2 hours scenic aerial-view flight from Pokhara to Annapurna Base Camp lying at an altitude of 4,130 m enjoying the enthralling view of the Pokhara city, villages, azure lakes, Himalayas, diverse landscape, world’s deepest gorge-Kali Gandaki gorge, glaciers, lush green forests, and terrains from the top.

Oh! What could be better than enjoying breakfast and sipping champagne surrounded by the Himalayas admiring its beauty?

Main Attraction of Helicopter Tour

When you set the view on the diverse landscape, the snow-capped mountains await your arrival. The innocence of locals and their warm welcome melts any visitant’s heart. Annapurna Base Camp is listed as the Top 10 must-visit place by several recognized media.

This region is not only blessed with its beauty but also is rich in exotic flora and fauna. It lies in Annapurna Conservation Area, so if luck favors, the travelers will get to see endangered wildlife like Snow Leopard, Tibetan Wolf, Tibetan Argali, and Himalayan Pheasants. 

After having breakfast with the Himalayas, we will stroll around the picture-perfect villages, take photographs, interact with inhabitants, and then fly back to Pokhara bearing lifetime unforgettable experiences and memories. 

ABC Trekking vs ABC Heli Tour

The Annapurna Base Camp trekking course is from 7 days to 14 days perfect for the travelers who have enough time, budget, travel with a purpose, love taking pictures, interacting with locals, experience their cuisine and culture, and wish to spend some time in the tranquility of nature away from every day of hurly-burly life.

But if you have a short time or maybe don't want to walk much and want to experience the Himalayas, luxury tour lovers, then ABC Heli Tour is for you. It may seem to be expensive for a few hours of a trip but it is quite affordable given that a Charter Helicopter is itself costly, all the taxes and entrance fees are included.

But comparing it with the proper trekking duration and the costs it requires for accommodation, gears, permits, meals, and other stuff, the helicopter tour seems to be cheaper.
