Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

Usually, when I plan short trips, it feels like something is not complete. This time we had just a few days left in Nepal after completing our Pokhara Chitwan tour. If we just stayed at our hotel and didn't go to the ABC on a helicopter, we would have missed it all. Ram was helpful and planned an amazing trip as always. We are a group of lazy travelers, we hate walking a lot. Hiking for some distance is cool but so many days? That's why we went on a Pokhara Tour but traveling to Nepal without getting close to mountains feels like you missed something. After spending all these days in Nepal, I can say that we've made some lifetime memories.
