"Let your dreams take flight as you soar to new heights, embracing the Annapurna Base Camp's majesty from above. In the realm of the mountains, the sky becomes your canvas." 

The Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Excursion stands as a highly favored tour in Nepal. This ninety-minute helicopter journey promises awe-inspiring vistas of the Annapurna Mountain range. Depart from Pokhara and head towards the Annapurna base camp, flying parallel to the northern mountains. Opting for a helicopter tour over trekking is primarily driven by time constraints. Nevertheless, this helicopter tour to the Annapurna base camp offers a splendid alternative for those who relish the thrill of flight. The 1-day Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Expedition is tailor-made for enthusiasts who seek to relish the aerial panorama of Nepal's mountainous terrain.

Initiate your day with an early morning visit to the Annapurna Base Camp, soaring like a bird. This helicopter tour kicks off from Pokhara airport, making its way to the Base Camp nestled amidst the mountains. The vistas are truly magnificent. We conduct daily flights from Pokhara at 8 am, excluding days marked by inclement weather or extreme winter conditions. We also provide transportation to and from your hotel and Pokhara airport. Please note that breakfast is not included in this package, but all necessary permits are incorporated into the overall cost. Stay attentive to the various promotions we offer for exclusive discounts. We've meticulously calculated the trip expenses, ensuring you relish a splendid Annapurna flight at a reasonable rate.

Please be aware that, due to the high altitude at the Annapurna base camp, the helicopter can accommodate only three passengers at a time. If you have more than three passengers, we may need to shuttle them, meaning passengers will be ferried one by one. This helicopter tour encompasses a total time of 2.5 hours, with 20-25 minutes dedicated to landing at the Annapurna base camp. During this time, you can savor tea or coffee and immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery. We also offer an Everest helicopter tour and tours of the Langtang Region, often arranged in partnership with renowned helicopter charter companies in Nepal like Air Dynasty Heli Services.

Best Time For Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour

The Annapurna base camp helicopter day trip is feasible year-round, but it requires clear visibility. The most optimal periods for helicopter journeys to the Annapurna base camp are autumn (September-November) and spring (March-May). These seasons offer clearer skies, ensuring more vivid mountain vistas. As temperatures drop, wildlife descends to lower altitudes, increasing your chances of spotting creatures like the Snow Leopard and Musk Deer. During the monsoon season (July-September), characterized by heavy rainfall, clouds obscure visibility, rendering helicopter flights and landings impractical. In the winter, rapid snowfall and colder weather make the landing area less accessible due to excessive snow accumulation.

Arrival Time

Upon your arrival at Pokhara airport, a seamless transition awaits to transport you to the helicopter tour departure point, ensuring a safe journey to the Himalayan paradise. You'll have approximately half an hour to forty-five minutes for disembarkation, allowing you to enjoy a morning meal in the shadow of Mount Annapurna. Positioned at an elevation of 4,130 meters, the landing location provides an unobstructed panoramic vista of Annapurna-I, Annapurna South, Himchuli, and Machhapuchhre.
