Even if you can not go for weeks long trekking in the Himalayas still you have a chance to observe and feel the natural beauty of Nepal. Helicopter Tour is just for you and the easier way to visit Nepal.
The Himalayan range in the north has more than 100 peaks that are over 6000 meters, of which 8 summits are among the world's tallest, and of course, the one and only Mt. Everest is not to be missed. The fertile land in the south known as 'Terai' boasts of abundant wildlife. To add more to your itinerary, you have the Kathmandu Valley with its ancient cities, temples and monasteries, and the Pokhara Valley with its beautiful lake side town nestled in the lap of the Himalayas. Visit to all these areas can be managed within a couple of days with out any obstacles.
Nepal, having high mountains and beautiful scenic countryside but is easily accessible by land transport, is known as "Helicopter Country." The helicopter services industry in Nepal is now well established with many types and categories of helicopters. The pilots are very experienced professionals with thousands of flying hours experience in Nepal. The helicopter service companies have excellent reputations and proven records for dependable emergency and rescue flight operations. There are eight Helicopter operating companies in Nepal.
Here we would like to offer some of wonderful helicopter tour to the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
