Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour Introduction
Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter tour landing at ABC is an astonishing representation of the stunning Himalayas. The trip offers a thrilling adventure to the Annapurna massif along with some of the most beautiful tourist destinations in Nepal. The Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter tour is an alternative to the Annapurna circuit trek which is very popular amongst trekkers in Nepal.
At an altitude of 4,130m, the Annapurna Base Camp which is also known as the Annapurna Sanctuary lies 40km north of the beautiful Pokhara city. Pokhara itself is a tourist city including numerous attractions. The city is popular amongst the locals as well as visitors from all over the globe. Fewa Lake is one of the major tourist attractions in Pokhara. Every year, it attracts thousands of travelers and trekkers who wish to be surrounded by the serene environment while watching the pristine Fewa lake.
The Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Sanctuary) is an oval-shaped plateau situated at an altitude of over 4,130m. Since the sanctuary is circled by giant mountains of the Annapurna massif on all sides, it is arguably the best 360° panoramic mountain view in Nepal. The Annapurna mountain range contains six prominent peaks which are all over 7,000m altitudes. The mountain range includes Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Annapurna III (7,555m), Annapurna IV (7,525m), Annapurna South (7,219m), and Gangapurna (7,455m).
Some less prominent peaks of the Annapurna mountain range are Khangsar Kang (7,485m), Annapurna Fang (7,647m), Tilicho Peak (7,135m), Nilgiri Himal North (7,061m), Machhapuchchhre (also known as Fishtail Mountain) (6,993m) and Hiunchuli (6,411m). Bordering all these wonders is the Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal’s largest conservation area with an estimated area of 7,629sqm.
Annapurna base camp chopper tour landing at base camp starts from the beautiful Pokhara airport since it is the closest take-off point from the Annapurna sanctuary. The Chopper tour is approximately 3 hours considering that it takes 30min for a one-way flight to the base camp. After a short introduction to our flight crew members, one of our representatives will provide some safety precautions which are to be followed at any cost during the charter. Safety is our primary concern and we do not compromise. We need to make sure that you have acknowledged all the instructions before boarding the Chopper.
Flying over the beautiful city of Pokhara (800m), eyeing the magical Fewa Lake, we officially start the Annapurna Base Camp chopper tour. Along the way, you will get to observe some spectacular glimpses of the divine nature sprinkled by the scattered Magar and Gurung settlements. After 30 minutes of flying, you are greeted with the giant snow-capped mountains of the Annapurna mountain range.
The time we spend at the Annapurna Sanctuary is limited, approximately about 20 to 30 minutes. This is due to safety reasons. Since the base camp is located at an altitude of 4,130m, it can be risky to stay more than half an hour. Gaining such an altitude in a very short time could cause Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). However, half an hour is more than enough for us to do some sightseeing, capture some memorable moments, and to enjoy a warm and delicious breakfast. Then, we trace our way back to Pokhara airport.
