One of the quick and best ways to experience Himalayan peaks is by flying closer to them. There are several fixed-wing flights, helicopter charter flights, Ultralight aircraft and paragliding in Nepal.
The most famous and cost effective flight for Himalayan sightseeing is the fixed-wing flight to Mt Everest from Kathmandu. This is well known as mountain flight or the Everest sightseeing Flight.
I was connected to Rabi and have absolutely no regrets. I told him of wanting to see the Himalayas up close and he told me about the helicopter tour where you get to actually land at Annapurna Base Camp. Without skipping a beat, he booked everything for me including a car to pick me up. All I had to do was actually show up. And wow what an experience! To see the Himalayas up close to you was amazing.
Helicopters are the most effective way of sightseeing Himalayan Mountains. Helicopters fly closer and also land at the mountain bases allowing passengers more time to take pictures and enjoy the Himalayan scenery. The most popular helicopter mountain flights are to Everest base camp and Annapurna base camp.
Helicopter tour of Everest base camp is a day trip from Kathmandu suitable for those limited with time to go on two weeks Everest base camp trek. The 3 hrs flight is the most guaranteed way of exploring the Sherpa land, up close aerial view of Mt Everest, Khumbu icefall and other Himalayan peaks east of Kathmandu. The flight takes off from Kathmandu and lands at Lukla airport. From there, follow the Dudh Koshi valley up to the Khumbu glacier. The flight circles the base camp for the 360 degree view of snow peaks and Mt Everest and lands at Kalaphatter. Fly back to Everest view hotel and enjoy the scrumptious breakfast with the breathtaking view of Everest and other snow peaks before flying back to Kathmandu.
There is a regular group joining helicopter flights to Annapurna base camp and back. The one hour flight from Pokhara carries 6 passengers and lands at Annapurna base camp at 4,200 m. The flight allows 15 minutes of ground time for passengers to walk around base camp and take pictures.
