Trip Overview of Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek

 Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek is best trip for those who have short time and want the mixed trekking with a helicopter ride. This is the perfect combination of both the trekking journey and an amazing helicopter ride across the beautiful landscape of the Annapurna region.

A beautiful climb to the Annapurna Base Camp dominates the rest of everything else. One of the most popular trails on the entire planet, the trip takes you to 4,130 meters / 13,550 feet of elevation so that you get some of the most enduring panoramic views of the surrounding atmosphere. Nature has blessed the country in abundance, people say. Rich in bio – diversity and magnificent flora and fauna, Nepal still has a lot to display. As visitors visit the small kingdom, they wonder about how far marvelousness can extend to.

Plenty of reasons has made the Annapurna Base Camp Trek one of the most classic trails of Nepal, after the Everest Base Camp Trek. Claiming to be the 10th highest mountain peak in the world, its summit soars high enough to 8,091m / 26,545ft providing absolutely incredible sights beyond heavenly pleasure. But, this trek takes to the base camp to about half of the total height of the beautiful mountain. Peak climbing and expedition are usually categorized under strenuous level of activity. But reaching out to base camps is not a bad idea at all. If you are restricted by time and health conditions, but yet you are an awesome explorer and a mountaineer, such choices can be great ways to slake your adventurous needs. Furthermore, the Annapurna region is itself the perfect place for explorers to bring their life to life and one of the best places in the entire world to be in.

The ambience gets even more exciting during the final hours of the daytime at the base camp. As the evening clocks up and dusk starts to fill the adjoining world, nearby mountain peaks contrasts itself to the enclosure with its shiny polish of fine majesty. Resisting the cold temperature outside, you can sneak out of the camp and enjoy the view outside for a while, as things do not remain with self forever and you that need to leave the sensational paradise the very next day. But, no matter what, travelling is mandatory and should always be made a part of life.
