ABC Trekking vs ABC Heli Tour
The Annapurna Base Camp trekking course is from 7 days to 14 days. The 14 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek is perfect for travelers who have enough time, and 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.
