Heliski Nepal were the first heli company to set up shop in the Nepalese Himalayas. Now they run weekly excursions via helicopter to the Annapurna and Everest region from mid-February to mid-April.
You won’t be getting a lie-in on this trip. Each day starts at 5am with a helicopter pick-up from the town of Pokhara at 6.30am. You’ll be dropped off at the top, getting in a good five or six runs before the clouds roll in at around lunchtime. But don’t worry – there will be fresh powder and blue skies again the next morning. Afternoons are free for you to explore the town, go paragliding, rent motorbikes, swim – and generally relish in that fact that you’re in Nepal!
You can add three days on to the tour and explore the Chitwan National Park’s tropical jungle by elephant.
