    Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return Best Time, Season, Months

    The best time to do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek Flight back by Helicopter is from September to November and from March to May. These months offer the best weather conditions, with clear skies and mild temperatures.

    • September to November (Autumn Season): This period offers clear skies, mild temperatures, and beautiful autumn colors.
    • March to May (Spring Season): This period offers warm temperatures, clear skies, and blooming rhododendrons.

    Avoid trekking during the monsoon season (July-August) as the trails can be slippery and visibility can be poor. Winter months (December-February) can also be challenging due to cold temperatures and potential snowfall.

    Food or Meal Availability on Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return

    Six breakfasts, four lunches, and five dinners are included in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek Flight Back with Helicopter package. We can guarantee you nutritious meals, however at altitude, choosing from the variety of the menu may be a bit challenging. You may need to adjust to the local cuisine culture depending on the height you spend the night at and the type of lodging you have. At higher elevations where most individuals maintain organic gardens, we strongly advise you to eat vegetarian meals. Additionally, it takes several days to get the meat from Pokhara or other surrounding places. Therefore, eating a vegetarian diet while trekking would be beneficial for your health, without sacrificing quality or freshness.

    Nuts, energy snacks, and other nutritious ingredients can be carried while walking on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek Return Back by Helicopter Journey. But be sure to carry all of your garbage with you and put it in the appropriate trash container. To prevent altitude sickness when hiking at a higher level, your body needs to be well-hydrated. Drink a lot of boiling or disinfected water. Alcohol drinking is risky at altitude because it causes your body to become dehydrated and more susceptible to altitude sickness.

      8 days Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return

      I met the agency Green Valley in Kathmandu and booked an 8 days Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return. Arjun from Green Valley organized this tailor-made travel plan for me including every transfer, reservation, etc., and was always accessible during my trip for follow-up questions. After heading to Pokhara I met my tour guide with whom I spent the following 8 days during the trek. I can definitely say that my Nepal journey would not have been the same without Arjun and his team! He put a lot of effort into making the trek as comfortable as possible and was very knowledgeable about the landscape, culture, etc. I highly recommend choosing Green Valley as your travel agency and especially Gopal as your guide - the journey was simply perfect!
