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.
