The helicopter flight from Nepalgunj is shorter yet exciting. This is where we start heading north to the Himalayas. Flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj is longer. However, Nepalgunj is located in the lower lands of Terai. Therefore, the flight from Nepalgunj to Rara is where you will start the giant snow-capped mountains standing tall in the distance. The temperature lowers as we gain altitude. After 30 minutes of a helicopter ride, we finally landed at Rara Lake.
