Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour is the most popular and iconic tourist helicopter flight available from Pokhara, Nepal. Moreover, it mainly focuses on those seeking to witness the spectacular range of Mt. Annapurna (8091 m). It stands as the tenth highest peak in the world. Additionally, the package also takes the traveler for a flyby over Machhapuchhre (6993 m), the Fishtail Mountain as well.


Visible Mountain Range

Besides the Annapurna range, the tour also allows you to experience an aerial and panoramic view of other mountain ranges. It includes Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Gangapurna, Singu Chuli, Himchuli, Khangsar Kang and Tare Kang Glacier Dome among others. Furthermore, the helicopter ride offers you an up close view of the greater Himalayas in a very short period of time while you skip the multi-day trekking route. Yes you can explore the most beautiful landmark on foot for days, but why not catch the base camp’s entire greatness from up above by helicopter? It let’s you enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from a whole bird’s eye perspective!


The ABC Heli Tour

The 15 minute flight takes off from Pokhara Airport towards Annapurna Base Camp with a flyby over Annapurna Sanctuary. While you fly, you will first enjoy the beautiful aerial view of the lakes including Phewa, Begnas, and Rupa. Additionally, you will also witness the crystal clear white Seti river and a stunning gorge decorated with a suspension bridge and prayer flags.


The helicopter will then drop you at ABC for about 30 minutes to observe the surroundings and capture photos of your memorable trip. You will then fly back to Pokhara Airport. Nonetheless, if you are in Nepal for a short vacation or a business trip, we highly recommend this beautiful helicopter ride. It will definitely be an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience!
