People who dont trek up to the base camp of the Annapurna Trek can do the Annapurna Base Camp Heli Tour from Pokhara, which is one of the best experiences of a helicopter tour around the Annapurna Base Camp to see all the highest mountains in this region.

Reviewed on: 28 Apr, 2019
when my wife and I are planning moderate level of trek in Nepal for my family with two young kids, Pasang sherpa reccomend us Annapurna base camp trek which is nearly two weeks, but we only have 10 days maximum and we wanted to do some moderate level trek with fantastic mountain views with sunrise, that is exactly what pasang customized itinerary to meet our requirements. we trek up to Ghorepani poonhill for sunrise views and then we walk up to Annapurna base camp for panoramic views of annapurna himalayas. we enjoyed this itinerary a lot, after trek, we don't really like to walk back to Pokhara same way, and so we decided to ride helicopter back to pokhara and relax in the city. pasang's arranged everything we need and made annapurna base camp helicopter trek best experience. within short timeframe, we completed trek and back to home with wonderful memory of Nepal trek. all the hotels in Kathmandu, pokhara and lodges during trek meet our expectation and our sherpas were so kind and helpful. we would like to use Nepal trekking tourism service again and reccomend to all. cheers, Nick
