Nepal is a landlocked, top of the world, home of the over eight thousand meters snow capped mountain and Lord Buddha's birth place where you can make a pleasant trekking, climbing and cultural tour holidays. Similarly, you can make a helicopter trip going to remote corners of the Himalaya which is such a pleasurable and exciting activity. But how? By helicopter! Since the whirlybird needs only a small landing space, it can be hired to take tourists to whichever destination and at whatever time they want to go. No wonder chartering a helicopter for sight-seeing has become a popular tourist activity in Nepal.
There are two types of helicopters currently operating in the private sector. The most frequently seen is the powerful Russian made MI-17. This is a big bird, capable of transporting 22 passengers or four tons of cargo. MI-17's can reach altitudes well in excess of 5.000 m and have been known to land at Everest Base Camp. They offer excellent utility and reliability under extreme conditions.
The other craft is the smaller and more maneuverable French made Ecureuil AS35OB series. This sports car of the rotor world is smooth and quiet and offers excellent visibility. Wide bodied and comfortable, it can carry five passengers and the newest models can land at 6.100 m. They are thus ideal for Himalayan sight-seeing and intimate charters.
Chartering a helicopter is especially advantageous for those who do not have much time to spare but want to see and experience all the attractions that Nepal has to offer.
The helicopters can be used for pleasure as well as for practical purposes: from touristic enjoyment, trekking and mountaineering expeditions to technical and scientific works.

Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek
My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....
