Take A Helicopter To Explore West Nepal

Dec 27 . 2022,Omi Karki

West Nepal is a new and untouched destination for tourists. West Nepal, previously overlooked, is becoming increasingly popular due to affordable airfares to significant cities and effective air connections to rural regions.

Even helicopter trips to breathtaking locations like Shey Phoksundo Lake, Rara Lake, and Khaptad National Park have grown in popularity.

Helicopter Tour To Visit Shey Phoksundo Lake

Shey Phoksundo Lake, at 3,660 meters, is Dolpo's biggest lake. While hiking for 6-8 days is the most common way to view Phoksumdo Lake, a helicopter from Juphal or Nepalgunj is also an option.

  • Visit the Bonpo religion's historic monasteries.
  • Take memorable photos with the Kanjirowa mountains and, of course, Phoksundo Lake in the backdrop.

Helicopter Tour to Visit Rara Lake

Helicopter Tour to Visit Badimalika and Khaptad

To get the most out of your helicopter trip, combine visits to Badhimalika Temple and Khaptad National Park. Even though Badimalika Temple is only 35 kilometres from Khaptad as the crow flies, travelling there by road takes at least two more days.
