Detailed Itinerary

Phase 1

The helicopter takes off from Kathmandu Domestic Airport. Swirling over the city, we head to the north and towards the Annapurna region. As we gain altitude you are instantly presented with the Annapurna mountain range shining at a distance. In minutes, we will enter the Annapurna Conservation Area which extends to 7,629sqm covering Manang, Mustang, Kaski, Myagdi, and Lamjung districts. After around 30 minutes of flying and gaining altitude, we will reach the Annapurna sanctuary. The helicopter lands at the Annapurna Base Camp at an altitude of 4,130m.

Phase 2

Upon landing at the Annapurna Base Camp, you will find yourself in a high glacial basin and surrounded by giant mountains from almost every angle. Due to this reason, the base camp only receives about 7 hours of sunlight a day. If you happen to be there during monsoon or spring, you will get a chance to observe dense tropical jungles covered with rhododendron and bamboo at a distance. The area is beautifully decorated with Buddhist prayer flags and houses made up of wood and stones. You will also notice some small tea houses where we will have our breakfast. The heavenly experience of Annapurna Base Camp will fill your heart with bliss.
