The helicopter tour is the safest tour ever as many rescue operation of Nepal are carried out by helicopter in the higher altitudes of Nepal. We use powerful helicopters like AS 350B3e for for helicopter tours. Also the pilots who fly the helicopter have good experience.
Because of its elevation, Nepal can divided into three zones-the high mountains, the mid-hills and the flat plains called the Terai. The Everest, Langtang and Annapurna Trekking destinations in the mountains are cool throughout the year. The mid-hills, including Kathmandu & Pokhara, are cool except in the summer months from May to July. Temperatures in these cities during the summer remain much cooler that in many cities of the region. Lumbini, Chitwan and Janakpur in the Terai plains are hot in summer ( March-July) but cold in winter( December- February).
Any month of the year would be good to visit Nepal around the mid-hills & flat plains and September to May is good time for trekking and expedition.
