Langtang Helicopter Tour lets you experience Langtang Himalayan range from the comfort of a helicopter. Get a bird's-eye view of traditional Tamang villages, the verdant Langtang National Park and Gosainkunda and other mountain lakes. Watch in awe as the chopper flies close to snow covered Himalayan Peaks. As the region lies close to Tibet you get a glimpse of  Tibetan peaks...

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 heli ride 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. 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 are Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Paldor Peak, Jugal Himal, Yala Peak and Singri Himal.

Flying to the Himalayas- Langtang Helicopter Tour

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money

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
