7-Day Nepal Tour with Mt Everest Helicopter Ride

Take to the skies on a journey to visit the world's highest mountain – the towering Mount Everest. Start your adventures by witnessing Everest and its surrounding mountains by helicopter, then spend time exploring the colourful streets of Kathmandu before taking in a bird’s-eye view of the city from a cable car by Chandragiri hills. Continue to Pokhara, a magical city of lakes, waterfalls and caverns and witness the sunrise over the Annapurna foothills on a dawn excursion to Sarangkot.

Enjoy a spectacular experience amongst the mountains plus six nights of five-star luxury accommodation, daily breakfasts and special dining experiences, a 30-minute massage, the services of a local English-speaking guide, private transportation, airport transfers and more.

Highlights

Witness one of the tallest and most spectacular series of mountains in the world on a helicopter tour around Mount Everest. Soar past snow-capped peaks, dry rugged landscapes and stretching panoramas of Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kantega, Lhotse and Nuptse in a comfortable and stylish expedition with plenty of photo opportunities. With close proximity sweeps of the land during the flight, you’ll be able to get a detailed view of the area without needing to embark on a strenuous hike.

Enjoy a journey through Kathmandu, witnessing a resilient and colourful city that has bounced back after the 2015 earthquakes. You’ll embark on a tour past the magnificent stupas of Swayambunath and the russet buildings of Durbar Square as the smiling locals continue about their business.

Take a cable car from the Chandragiri Hills for a ride over the Kathmandu Valley, covered in splendid woodland which lies guarded by the Himalayas. Get a bird’s-eye view of the city below as you take in a beautiful mix of lowland and highland scenery alike.

Spend some time exploring magical Pokhara and its surrounds, a place where city meets nature in perfect harmony. Your first major adventure in this lake-bound city takes you to Sarangkot for breathtaking views of a sunrise over the Annapurna mountain range, followed by a day exploring caves, waterfalls and the iconic Phewa Lake which all sit comfortably in Pokhara’s city bounds.

What We Like

There's a cold beauty to Mount Everest and it's cloud skirted surrounds - the mix of unforgiving rock and pure white snow is almost as silently enchanting as the mountain is huge. The mountain has proved itself a challenge to seasoned climbers for generations. The best thing about this adventure is that no matter your hiking ability, you'll be able to witness this one-of-a-kind landscape from the safety of a helicopter. No freezing hands, no sore feet, just you and your small group taking in this beauty as you sit sheltered from the elements.
