Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Trek Overview 

Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Trek offers you the experience of trekking through the diverse landscape of the Annapurna region combined with the aerial tour of the breathtakingly beautiful Annapurna massif. Our Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trekking starts with a flight from Kathmandu to the beautiful city of Pokhara, also known as The City of Lakes. We’ll trek across one of the most beautiful trekking trails surrounded by forests, mountains, and diverse landscapes. The Annapurna region is considered one of many naturally attractive and floral-rich regions in Nepal.

The magnificent views of the Annapurna peaks and Mt. Machapuchhre throughout the trek make the route even more scenically pleasing. Overcome the infamous steep steps to reach Ulleri, enjoy trekking through the rhododendron forests on the way to Ghorepani and relish the magnificent panoramic view of the Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri peaks, and Mt. Machapuchhre (Fishtail) among a dozen or more other peaks from Poon Hill, one of the best vantage points in the region.

Next, in the Annapurna Base Camp Heli Treks, we trek through Machapuchhre Base Camp to Annapurna Base Camp where you can get up-close views of the Annapurna I, III, and South along with other mountains like Machapuchhre, Hiuchuli, and Gangapurna. We return to Pokhara from the Annapurna via a helicopter; the flight offers a bird’s eye view of the mountain ranges and the changing landscapes. Passengers enjoy the unbelievably close and clear views of the mountain ranges and the Annapurna region during the flight.

Adventure Club Trek also has Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour-1 Day for those who do not want to trek at all and want to land at the Annapurna Base Camp directly.

You will take an early morning flight to Pokhara on this day. The lakeside city of Pokhara is a beautiful tourism hub of the country and is also called the adventure center of Nepal. Many mountain peaks like Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre, and Annapurna can be seen from the city. Pokhara is also famous for its pristine Fewa Lake. The reflection of the Machhapuchhre Himal can be seen on clear days on the surface of the lake. Leisure activities like boating and fishing can also be done. From Pokhara, we will then drive to Nayapul (42km) in a car/taxi, passing the village of Lumle. Walking for about 20 minutes, we will reach Birethanti. Following the main street of Birethanti, we will go through the forests of Bamboo and past a large waterfall and a swimming hole. Cutting across the pasturelands that are mostly used for pony caravans, we will reach the village of Ramghai where we will have our lunch. After that, we will reach Tikhe Dhunga.

We pass waterfalls, tiny villages, and several tea-houses before reaching Ghorepani. We stop at the higher part of the Ghorepani village that offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri mountains.

We head out to Poon Hill before the dawn breaks to catch in a romantic setting of shooting stars in the sky above us. Our goal is to reach the top in time to enjoy the golden hour in the Himalayas. At the top, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the full Annapurna massif including other mountains like Dhaulagiri and Machapuchhre among others. We descend to Ghorepani for breakfast after which we leave for Tadapani. Through pine trees and rhododendron forests, we pass by Deurali (2,960m) to reach Tadapani. Overnight in Tadapani.

We descend rapidly from Tadapani, but as we near Gurung the trail eases. Enjoy the fantastic views of the Upper Modi Valley along the way. We walk along the west bank of Modi Khola and pass through Chhomrong, a village at the base of Himchuli (7,893m).

2-3 hours of walk from Sinuwa brings us to Kuldighar passing Bamboo and Dovan along the way. We head a little ahead to see the forest clearing from where the path goes steeply downwards onto the rocky bank to the end of the gorge. The path ahead is filled with many waterfalls, we also pass by a little shrine opposite the gorge.

Today is a much anticipated day of the trek. We will follow the trail and climb past the Machhapuchhre Base Camp (which isn’t really a base camp since climbing the mountain is not permitted) to the Annapurna Base Camp. This area is also called the Annapurna Sanctuary since it is totally surrounded by mountains and is under the protection of the sanctuary. From here, it is a two-hour trek to the Annapurna Base camp, which offers spectacular views of the mountain peaks and lets you experience the wide vastness of snowy terrain and close views of the huge Himal. The landscape at the Annapurna Base camp is spectacular and fascinating. The snowy landscape of the Base Camp is very beautiful and the overall view of whole mountain peaks is pretty wonderful. Overnight in ABC.

This is another most anticipated day of the trek as today; you will be experiencing one of the most amazing helicopter rides from the base camp of Annapurna back to Pokhara early in the morning. The aerial view of the mountain peaks from the helicopter is something that inspires thrill and excitement. While looking below, you would be able to notice the dramatic change in the landscape as the snowy lands of the high mountains are replaced with green hills, terrace farmlands, and forests. Sometimes, herds of wild goats can be seen from above, running in a group below. The beautiful landscape of the Annapurna region does not disappoint when seen from a bird's eye perspective. The panoramic view of the entire terrain presents itself like a beguiling portrait. Finally, we will land at Pokhara. From Pokhara, we will then take an afternoon flight back to Kathmandu. Overnight in Kathmandu.

We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury.

    Useful Info

    Meals 

    All meals — breakfast, lunch, and dinner — will be provided during the trek, and breakfast will only be provided in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We host welcome and farewell dinners for our guests. During the trek, we have breakfast and dinner at tea-houses or lodges where we spend nights while there will be lunch at tea-houses on the way. You have the option to choose from Nepali, continental, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines. As we take care of our guests, we ensure that you are getting healthy food. We prioritize locally produced organic food and also provide you with seasonable fruits. During the climbing session, hygienic, freshly-cooked food will be provided.

    Note: If you are a vegetarian, let us know in advance so that we could make proper arrangements for food as per your wish during the trek 

    Accommodations 

    You will be accommodated in a three-star standard hotel in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and the best available teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. A single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional. Please note that since you will be trekking in remote regions, the services in the teahouses/guesthouse will be pretty basic. We will try our best to arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places do not have attached bathrooms.

    Drinking-Water

    Adventure Club provides all the meals on the trek but doesn't provide water. The best option is to treat the local water either with chlorine/iodine tablets or use a steripen. The tea houses will give you good quality free water and, you can also get along the trail but, you will need to treat it. If you are using the tablets make sure they dissolve completely (about 30 mins). On most treks, you can buy mineral water along the trail. A liter of mineral water at lower elevation tea houses costs around USD 1 but at higher elevations can cost up to $4 so the cost can add up.

    Acclimatization And High Altitude Sickness 

    The acclimatization planned during the trip helps trekkers adapt to the environment with less oxygen. Our body needs time to adjust to the higher altitudes. Rushing to the higher elevation without acclimatization may result in acute mountain sickness (AMS) which could be fatal. The trekkers may suffer from AMS above 2,400m/7,875ft as the amount of oxygen becomes less and less with the increase in elevation.

    We can categorize AMS into three categories with its symptoms. The trekker suffering from normal AMS feels giddy, gets headache, Nausea, and is out of breath, and is suggested not to worry as it disappears after the body gets used to less amount of oxygen. Likewise, trekkers suffering from mild AMS show symptoms of dizziness, muscular pain, insomnia, headache, vomit, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Mild AMS can be treated with anti-headache medicines. A person suffering from serious AMS shows heightened symptoms including shortness of breath even while taking rest. The trekker with serious symptoms can barely walk and fluids may start building up in the lungs. The trekker having serious AMS has to be taken to the lower altitude immediately.

    Advanced cases of AMS

    If AMS is not treated in time, it can be life-threatening and lead to edema, a condition in which fluid is accumulated in the tissues of the body. Following are the two serious altitude sicknesses caused at high altitudes.

    High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)

    In HACE, the brain gets swollen which can lead to coma and even death. Its symptoms are paralysis on one side of the body, bladder dysfunction, fatigue, bowel dysfunction, loss of coordination, and confusion. Descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible to prevent the worsening of the condition.

    High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)

    Fluid is accumulated in the lungs which also increases the capillary pressure. Its symptoms include severe shortness of breath at rest, dry cough that later leads to producing pink frothy sputum, and fatigue. Important Note: Severe cases of AMS are pretty rare. All our guides at the Adventure Club Trek, are aware of the symptoms of AMS and can handle it with care. We prioritize acclimatization, talk about the use of Diamox beforehand and counsel all our trekkers on the risk and preventive factors before and during the trip. Your safety is our main concern.

    First-Aid Kit

    Our guides and porters are equipped with a basic first-aid kit during regular treks. For expeditions that take on the isolated and off-the-beaten trekking paths, a comprehensive first-aid kit is compulsory, the same goes for climbing expeditions as well.

    • Plasters/ Band-aids and antiseptic ointments for simple cuts

    Equipment And Packing List 

    This is the list of guidelines to help you pack what is needed to bring in on the trip. The packing list may vary depending on the season you set off on the journey. Please take note that a trekker's luggage should not exceed the limit of 11kg as there will be one porter to carry the luggage of two trekkers. Apart from the luggage, each trekker will have to carry a day-pack including valuables or what is important. It will be better if you pack only the items that are necessary for you.

    Visa And Entry Procedure 

    Everyone needs a visa to enter Nepal except Indian nationals. Citizens of the SAARC nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan do not require visa for a period of 30 days. Fortunately, getting a Nepal visa is an easy process. Tourist visas are issued on arrival at the international airport and official overland entry points. However, travelers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Swaziland, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Liberia are not issued visa on arrival. After you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will find electronic kiosks that will assist your visa processing. Taking the completed form and paying the visa fee, you need to stay in the long immigration queue for your visa on arrival.

    Visitors can now apply for online visa within15 days of their arrival date in Nepal. For this, you will need your Nepal hotel address and a digital passport-sized photo that needs to be uploaded to the online application. After submitting the form online, you need to print out the confirmation page which has to be furnished at the immigration section in Kathmandu airport along with your passport and the required visa fee. You can apply for your online Nepal visa here.

    Tourists can also apply for a Nepali visa at the local Nepali Embassy or Consulate located in their respective countries. Or, they can even mail their visa application to the visa office near their location, but well ahead of time to allow sufficient processing time. Nepal visa information for all categories of travelers and their correspondence cost can be very handy, so for more information and contact details of the Nepali Embassies and Consulate around the world, you may CLICK HERE.

    Our Trekking Guides/Leaders 

    Here at Adventure Club, our staff is like family. We only use locals to support their communities and we train our staff rigorously to be the best they can be – for you! 

    •  Full first aid training
    • Guide Training (trekking)
    • English and other common languages (as requested) 
    • Village and land Conservation 
    • Mountaineering (for specialty expedition or climbing treks)

    All our guides are carefully trained for leadership as good leadership is vital for your trek to be enjoyable, safe, and successful. Most of our guides grew up in Sherpa country or other mountainous parts of Nepal. Their pride in their region shows itself in the way they lead treks and interface with you. 

    Porters Care

    On any team, courtesy and respect are fundamental for an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Our porters are an essential, integral part of each trekking team, and as such, they are well-treated and well-paid. At the conclusion of your trek, we believe you will find that they have fully earned your gratitude and respect. We do expect all trekkers to keep the weight of their baggage under 15kgs/33lbs. Adventure Club Trek maintains a full commitment to the rights of our porters, providing them with appropriate clothing, gear, and lodging. In case of serious accident or sickness, they receive the same care as anyone else employed on the trekking team, even including evacuation by helicopter at our expense if appropriate. We fully support the IPPG (International Porter Protection Group), which strives to maintain and improve our porter's working conditions.

    Experience Required 

    Annapurna Base Camp Trek is suitable for all adventurers who can walk for at least 5-6 hours a day. At some points, you may have to walk for 7 -8 hours. The trek is moderate, but it is to take note that walking in higher altitudes can be more physically demanding than in the lowland. If you wish to make the Annapurna Base Camp Trek you do not have to be an expert in mountaineering. It only requires good mental health and physique. With the leadership of our experienced guide qualified in first aid, you will be able to complete the trek efficiently.

    Best Time to Travel 

    Autumn (Sept -Nov) and Spring (March-May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon (June to Aug) will be affected by rain but a summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.

    Travel Insurance 

    To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. Adventure Club Trek has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.

    Electricity, WIFI, And Battery Recharge 

    During the Annapurna base camp trek, electricity is available at all the teahouses where you will spend the night. You can recharge your phones, laptop, or iPads from micro-hydropower and solar panels by paying a nominal charge. Regarding Wi-Fi, there are no free hotspots along the trekking trail, so we do not encourage carrying your laptop. Some teahouses do offer paid Wi-Fi services on an hourly basis but don’t expect high-speed connectivity on the remote trails.

    Communication 

    On the Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal, the internet service will be available at lodges with some extra service charge. You can contact your family and friends from the guesthouses, but as we reach higher altitudes, the communication will be through the phone for safety purposes. We communicate with all our valuable clients through the team leader at least once a day to make sure you are fine and enjoying the trip. The Adventure Club Trek office in Kathmandu will constantly be in touch with you for the help you may need during the trek. Depending on the network you use, there could be a poor signal to network before the high altitude. Upon your request, we can provide you with a separate local sim card to better the network. Many places have WIFI service available at an extra cost.

    Group Size And Team Composition 

    We always try to form a small group of like-minded people to give them a wonderful and perceptive travel experience. It provides opportunities to interact and share with each other in a fun-filled environment when out in the wilderness. Generally, our travel group comprises a maximum of 14 members. We need at least two participants to run our fixed departure dates. For private trips, the number of group members do not apply. We always strive to form a team ensuring that the members are comfortable with one another.

    Tipping 

    Tipping is not mandatory in Nepal as most services include a service charge. However, if you want to express your gratitude, you are free to offer a tip to drivers, and hotel staff among others. People usually welcome such generosity. When it comes to tipping your porters or trekking leaders, use your discretion as per the quality of the services. Tip money does not form a part of our employees’ wages. However, you can use tipping as a way of showing appreciation for excellent service at the end of the trip.
