What is the best time to go on Langtang Helicopter Tour?

Langtang Region has a more variable climate and a higher altitude. The weather here is usually windy and dry. Our trip only takes a few minutes, so we will be able to enjoy a wonderful experience at the serene Kyanjin Gompa, regardless of the weather. Whether it's raining or foggy, it's impossible to get off the helicopter. What's the point of flying if we can't view the Himalayan landscape and panoramic view? Autumn and spring are ideal seasons for the Langtang Helicopter Tour. These seasons are stable and comfortable with their temperatures. The pleasant, dry, and sunny weather during the day makes it easier to visit the Kyanjin Gompa. The temperature can drop at night or in the early morning. The Himalayas look their best in autumn and spring when the lush grassy hills are at their most beautiful.

Different models of helicopters are used for the Langtang Helicopter Tour.
