From Pokhara, the helicopter takes off towards the Annapurna Base Camp, flying over the picturesque villages of Ghandruk and Chhomrong. As the helicopter gains altitude, the panoramic views of the Himalayan mountain range start to unfold. The helicopter flies over the Modi Khola River, which cuts through the Himalayan range, and gives a bird's eye view of the dense forests and the terraced fields.
The helicopter lands at the Annapurna Base Camp, which is located at an altitude of 4,130 meters above sea level. The Annapurna Base Camp is a natural amphitheater surrounded by the Annapurna massif, including Annapurna I, the tenth-highest peak in the world. The base camp is a popular destination for trekkers and climbers, and it provides stunning views of the Himalayas. After spending some time at the base camp, the helicopter takes off for a scenic flight over the Himalayas, including the Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre peaks. The flight provides an unforgettable experience, as the majestic Himalayas come alive from above. The helicopter then lands at the airport of Pokhara, which will conclude your ABC Helicopter Tour Itinerary successfully.
