The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Ultimate Luxury Holidays, Adventure & Off-the-beaten track

Nothing is better than taking a helicopter tour into the remote far reaches of Nepal. On the way, you get an exclusive view of the fantastic Himalayan vistas (rather than from a small plane window for instance), and it also means that treks that take weeks to complete in a few hours. You can cover both the Annapurna Region and Everest Regions in one short trip.

Just imagine flying off into the remotest corners of the country, possibly hundreds of miles away from any other tourist, having the views exclusively yours? Throw in a picnic, a bottle of champagne and a big smile and you can imagine you are in for something extraordinary indeed.

Combine Kathmandu, the Kingdom of Mustang, overfly Annapurna Base Camp, a short walk in the foothills, a stop in the remote Langtang region for a picnic and a helicopter tour of Everest Base Camp. We use modern French Ecureuil AS350s, capable of flying to 16000ft, and fantastic pilots. These pilots are experts in flying at altitude to take you on your travels, along with the very best guides to make the most of your time in Nepal.  You will have time to walk through the foothills and see the local life that ekes out a living on the steep hillsides of the Himalayas. This helicopter tour is simply the best way to see Nepal.

I organised a trekking holiday in Nepal through Millis Potter at very late notice. It was executed flawlessly and the holiday was organised to the minute detail so we didn't have to worry about any of the logistics and could just concentrate on enjoying ourselves.  Highly recommended!
