Gurkha Encounters offer a wide range of helicopter services. We can provide our ‘See Nepal from the Air’ tours as well as assisting in travel in Nepal, logistic movement and rescues. Gurkha Encounters can not be held responsible for any health illness arising from the sudden gain in altitude if clients wish to be dropped off in high locations. It is the responsibility of the client to make sure they are properly acclimatized and fit for their intended itinerary.Annapurna Base camp 12,000ftDuration: 05:00 Hour
