Not everyone has the time and fitness to trek multiple days into the Himalayas. That should not stop you from enjoying the beauty of the Himalayas as Himalayan trekkers offer private or shared Heli tours into the Himalayas. A Heli tour in Nepal can last for short half an hour to 6-hour day trips going into the most remote parts of the Himalayas within a day. Depending upon where you are going you will have a landing time of 10 minutes to half an hour. That means you can enjoy the aerial view as well as get down and stroll around the high Himalayan base camps and come back to your hotel within a day in the city.
The Everest Heli tour, especially the breakfast with Everest is the most popular helicopter tour in Nepal. It is a 3-hour journey on a helicopter to the base camp of Everest. Besides that, you can also do helicopter trips to the Annapurna base camp, Gosaikunda and Manaslu areas. Heli tours serve people of all ages and interests. The cost of the Heli tours can range from USD 990 to more than $5000 depending on the group size and the time of the year. The best time for the helicopter tours in the Himalayas is during Spring (March-May) or Autumn (Sep-Dec).
