Annapurna Base camp Heli Trek

ADRENALIN RUSH FLYING HIGH LIKE AN EAGLE.

This 9 Days Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek lets you experience the Annapurna mountains with an adrenalin-pumping flight among some of the world’s highest mountains and trekking through the Annapurna Conservation Area with its unique landscape and rich cultures.

The 9 Days Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek takes you to what is considered one of the most diverse regions in Nepal, well known for its unique fauna and diversity of cultures, such as Gurung and Magar. This trek is ideally suited to those who want everything but are short on time. 

The trail takes you through the vibrant rhododendron and Cyprus forests and to villages steeped in traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture. Visit Ghorepani Village (2874m)  the gateway and launch- pad to the famous viewing platform – Poon Hill and its breathtaking views of the looming Annapurna mountains landscape. Visit the lakeside town of Pokhara where you can see mountains such as the iconic Machapuchare (Fish Tail) and Annapurna in the distance. Once on the trail, you will see waterfalls cascading into steep valleys and an opportunity to relax at one of the many guest houses in Tikhedhunga (1570m) and take in the stunning views of the surrounding soaring peaks. 

The highlight of this trek is undoubtedly the helicopter ride from Annapurna Base Camp back to Pokhara. This is a heart-stopping flight that offers a completely new perspective of just how massive these mountains really are!

ITINERARY

Expand All
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, dos and don’ts of your trek. Your safety and comfort are paramount.
Your day begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, followed by a 42km drive of around 1:5 hrs from Pokhara via attractive Lumle Village, perched on the mountainside, and then on to Nayapul (1050m). The Poon Hill trek begins at Nayapul and after a 30-minute hike reaches Birethanti where you will be asked to your tourist permit at the checkpoint. The trail takes us through the beautiful rhododendron forest and then follows the Modi River with a stop at a teahouse for lunch in Ramghai Village along the way, and after a 3 -4-hour trek reach the lush green village of Tikhedhunga.
Our trek today starts with a 2 hour fairly steep climb up to Ulleri (2070m) and then to the Magar village of Banthanti from where we are blessed with magical views of Mt. Machapuchare (6997m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Annapurna South (7219m). After following the trail through a lush pink flowering rhododendron forest we cross a small bridge before reaching the village of Ghorepani where enormous peaks, such as Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna South, Hiunchuli (6441m), and Annapurna loom in the background. This is a fantastic place to sit and take in the exquisite views.
Poon Hill is justifiable well known for offering unheralded views of the Annapurna Ranges – especially at sunrise and sunset. An early start will see us reach the Poon Hill viewpoint where we can watch the changing colors reflecting off the mountains, such as Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7855m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna South (729m), Nilgiri (6940m), Tukuche (6920m), Varaha Shikhar (7847m) & Lamjung Himal (6931m). After sending your camera into overdrive we will return to a well-deserved breakfast at Ghorepani, after which we head to Tadapani Village via the scenic trail passing through Deurali (meaning a ridge in Nepali) and teahouses until we reach Tadapani.
From Tadapani we follow the trail leading to Sinuwa with exhilarating views of the Upper Modi valley. The trail takes us along the west bank of the Modi Khola (river) before passing through Chomrong Village that lies at the foot of Mt. Himalchuli (7893m). After passing through Chomrong Village we continue along the trail until we reach Sinuwa Village where we stay the night.
Our trek today starts off heading downhill on stone steps to Sinuwa before going uphill to Deurali. The descending trail on the stone steps takes us through a bamboo forest passing streams and among flowering shrubs.
Today’s trek takes us via Machapuchare Base Camp and then to the Sanctuary (ABC) along with a trail that is often covered in snow – depending on the season. We follow the trail that takes us by Hinku Cave and Deurali. From ABC you are blessed with mind-boggling views of Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Himchuli (6441m), and Machapuchare (6997m) n enormous mountain right before your eyes! ABC has several teahouses where we can stop for a break and take in the magnificent views. We will stay here tonight.
This is definitely a day to look forward to as you climb aboard your helicopter for a flight from ABC to Pokhara. The spectacular views of the soaring snow-clad Annapurna Massif are jaw-dropping. From Pokhara we will take an evening flight back to Kathmandu. Hotel accommodation at Kathmandu.
Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of these regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek. 

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
