Helicopter tours are for those people who have limited time and don’t like to walk upward and downward on the difficult Himalayan trails. You could charter a helicopter and go to any place without any difficulty. Helicopter tours in recent times have become very popular for sightseeing as the helicopter takes a very small space to land.
Do you want to enjoy the mountains despite health issues and time constraints? Helicopter tours make it possible to do so in a day. Fly parallel to the high mountains and experience the thrilling ride above glacier lakes, quaint villages, and verdant hills. In recent times the helicopter tour is gaining popularity amidst adventure enthusiasts.
Take a helicopter tour to Everest, enjoy the bird’s eye view of Lukla, fly parallel to the Himalayan ranges, and savor the breathtaking aerial views. Kalapatthar is the best place to see Mount Everest where you will stopover to soak in the mountain vistas and create wonderful memories. Have breakfast with a view of stunning mountains like Ama Dablam, Khumbu, and Thamserku at Shyangboche.
Nowadays trekking to Everest and returning by helicopter is a popular way to enjoy the best of both the worlds- trekking and helicopter ride. You can choose from our different treks to the Everest region with a helicopter ride as per your convenience.
Langtang is one of the best destinations for a helicopter ride with breathtaking aerial views of Gosaikunda Lake, Himalayan peaks of Nepal, and Tibet and ethnic Tamang villages. Your helicopter will briefly land at Kyangjin Gompa, an ancient Buddhist monastery in Langtang National Park.
The best time to do a helicopter tour is in spring and autumn. The pre-monsoon weather of spring and post-monsoon weather of autumn is clear and gives you uninterrupted views. In Nepal spring is from March to May and the autumn season starts from late September and last till November. Having said that the weather conditions high in the mountains are quite unpredictable and your safety remains our first priority.
I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.
So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.
One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.
Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
