Langtang Helicopter Tour takes you on an exhilarating helicopter ride across the beautiful Langtang Valley. A new inclusion in our Nepal Helicopter Tours, the helicopter tour to Langtang lets you experience the splendor of the Langtang Range. Langtang Region is the only trekking region that lies close to Kathmandu. This area is renowned for its rich Tamang Buddhist culture and Himalayan peaks that are easy to climb. The Tamangs, an ethnic mountain community, are believed to be descendants of Tibetan horsemen who came to trade horses in Nepal hundreds of years ago. In the traditional villages one can still find families practicing Tibetan culture and breeding horses. The region also came into limelight when an avalanche triggered by the devastating 2015 earthquake destroyed the entire Langtang Village. The International Astronomical Association has named a crater in Mars ‘Langtang’ in honour of this village.

Get spellbound and mesmerized! Your Langtang Helicopter Tour begins from Tribhuvan International Airport. Enjoy aerial views of Kathmandu Valley as the aircraft makes its way to Langtang. Watch the green hills, hilltop villages and serpentine rivers flowing past the mountains. Capture the breathtaking sight of snowcapped Himalayan peaks and Gosainkunda Lake (a sacred mountain lake) in your camera. The helicopter lands briefly at Kyangjin Gompa, a Tamang settlement with an ancient Buddhist Monastery located inside the Langtang National Park. Soak in the sights of the snow-covered mountains and glaciers during your Langtang Helicopter Tour. After exploring the area and refreshment at a local café you will fly back to Kathmandu. Some of the Himalayan peaks you will get to fly close to during your Langtang Helicopter Tour are Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Paldor Peak, Jugal Himal, Yala Peak and Singri Himal.

Awesome Heli Tour
My husband was on his vacation with his friends while my children were at their aunt's house. I had to do a short, in fact, a day trek and Langtang Heli Tour was on my bucket list. I did every planning in rush but it was worthy. It all went good, I completed by long-wished heli tour to Langtang Valley. Had to say this, if it was not Third Rock Adventures, I would not have done it, they were quick and assertive with every step. My heli ride date and departure were guaranteed and they were up with their words. I am back from my awesome heli tour. An incredible heli ride up above the Himalayas and Gosaikunda Lakes. My husband was shocked to see such cool pictures of the Himalayas and Tamang people I met there. He could only imagine how awesome my trip was. And now I am bragging about my creative and cool heli tour. Thanks to Third Rock Adventures for their service I could not anticipate from any other travel agency.
I wanted to do a day trip and check off the Langtang Heli tour from my bucket list.
Of course, flying parallel to the Himalayas. And Gosaikunda Lakes from Heli was impressive
just like me, if you are short on time and have a day in your hand, this trip is the one. Without any doubt, call the agency and pack your bag to Nepal and Himalayas

Heli to Langtang
I wanted to board a heli to Langtang Himalayas and explore the Tamang village of Kyangin Gompa. I had once heard about Langtang Valley and it's beauty. My friend had done it and requested me to do it any time soon and I did it. I had a summer break and wanted to visit Langtang valley but due to my due works, I could only afford a day. Talked with travel consultant at Third Rock Adventures and everything perfectly matched up and here I am. One of the best things about this trip is insane views of Gosaikunda Lakes from heli. Overall, this trip made summer break a perfect holiday.

Flying to the Himalayas- Langtang Helicopter Tour
Wow, this was a wonderful tour! This was the second time we were visiting Langtang and we did it in style. Langtang has been special for us (my husband and I) as this was where we trekked to on our first visit to Nepal 17 years back. We have such good memories from that trek. The news about the destruction caused by the 2015 earthquake to Langtang Village saddened us greatly. We had stayed at a teahouse run by a jovial local lady at this village. This year we decided to revisit the region again. Our plan was to trek but we had to change our plans at the last minute because of a knee injury. We were about to shelve our plans when the Third Rock team(with whom we had booked the Langtang Trek) suggested that we do the Langtang Helicopter Tour instead. Thanks to them we were able to revisit this lovely region and relive our memories. The flight was absolutely breathtaking. The Himalayas looked stunning and the stopover at Kyangin Gompa brought back so many memories. Once again thanks to the team at Third Rock Adventures for this wonderful adventure. We recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to get close to the Himalayas without exerting oneself. It is easy and not very expensive for a helicopter tour.
Best Destination
Yes
We wanted to visit Langtang Region.
From the take off to landing, the whole tour was enjoyable.
Take this tour. Great value and beautiful views.

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.
