Annapurna Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Himalayas. The ABC Trekking also demands enough time, physical fitness, adequate preparation for trekking and readiness to walk for hours in the Himalayas.
If you want to be in the Annapurna Base Camp, you will have to manage at least 10 days in Nepal. To reach the Annapurna Base Camp there are two options: flight/drive to Pokhara then trek to the Annapurna Base Camp, and take a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara then to the Annapurna Base Camp. If you have time constraint and still have desire to explore and the mesmerizing Himalayas of the Annapurna range others in Nepal, you better take the Helicopter tour.
Annapurna Base Camp Heli trekking starts right from the Kathmandu International Airport, taking a flight to Pokhara. After a short break in Pokhara, you will continue your flight to the Annapurna Base Camp (Also, you can take a plane to Pokhara and then a helicopter to the Annapurna Base Camp).
Before you fly to Pokhara, you can wander around the Kathmandu valley and enjoy watching the beauty. En route Pokhara you will have an opportunity to closely view Mt. Annapurna, Mt Dhaulagiri, Mt Manaslu and Ganesh Himal, passing through some awesome rivers and lakes.
After landing at the Pokhara airport, you will have some quality break as you can boat across the beautiful Phewa Lake. Then you will fly towards the destination‒ the Annapurna Base Camp‒where you will be surrounded by the snow-capped mountains.

Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.
On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
