Helicopter Tours

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.

Nepal is famous for trekking and mountaineering and offers you several high-altitude treks. Thousands of trekkers and mountaineers come to see Nepal's Himalayas every year. So, there is a risk of mountain sickness, which might be fatal for people living at a low altitude while visiting the mountainous region. So, people who suffer from mountain sickness need to be transferred to a low altitude place and medical assistance. And to reach such remote locations, our Nepal helicopter services will always be available at your service. Besides high-altitude sickness, sometimes trekkers might get lost somewhere in the mountains. In that case, we provide prompt evacuation services to save the life of people.  

Nepal is a mountainous country, so there is no easy access to transportation. Most remote places still don't have road access and usually take long hours uphill and downhill to reach the final destination. So, we are collaborating with several helicopter services operators to help people get immediate transporting assistance in an emergency.

Third Rock Adventures
Good service by the company. Everything was done in timely-manner. Good workers. Highly recommended company for heli service. ...

We flew to a famous temple in Nepal called Muktinath temple and got back to Kathmandu in just a day. It is also one of the world's highest temples at an altitude of 3,750 meters. The tour is great if you have a day or two left before you fly back to your home. By the way, the tour is affordable too. ...

My wife insisted to have a heli ride to Lukla instead of a regular flight. We were 4 total in a heli for the Lukla flight. The captain suggested to fly after 1 hour for good view so we waited for about 1.5 hours for good sight, and we had a clear weather window. My wife was literally jumping with excitement. Within few minutes we were in Lukla. ...

Guinness World Record holder Gives Third Rock Adventures a Review!

werner berger

Werner Berger is the Guinness Book of World Records holder for being the oldest person in the World to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven (7) continents (incl. Mt. Everest).

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.
