Overview

The Kathmandu Helicopter Sightseeing Tour offers a mesmerizing and comprehensive exploration of the Kathmandu Valley and its surrounding natural wonders. Departing from Tribhuvan International Airport, the helicopter takes flight towards the northern side of the valley, embarking on an adventure filled with breathtaking sights.

The first stop on this thrilling journey is Boudhanath, one of the most iconic and sacred Buddhist sites in Nepal. From above, you can witness the grandeur of the Boudhanath Stupa, with its massive white dome and the mesmerizing prayer flags fluttering in the wind. The spiritual ambiance of this revered pilgrimage site is truly awe-inspiring.

Continuing the flight, the helicopter proceeds to the enchanting Kapan Monastery, nestled in the serene hills surrounding the valley. The monastery, with its vibrant red buildings and golden roofs, is a haven of tranquility and an important center for Buddhist teachings. From above, you can appreciate the monastery's peaceful atmosphere and its integration with the surrounding green forests.

Next, the helicopter ascends towards Shivapuri hill, offering panoramic views of the lush valleys and rolling hills. Shivapuri is a popular hiking destination known for its pristine nature and rich biodiversity. As you fly over this majestic hill, you can witness its dense forests, glistening streams, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of wildlife that call this area home.

The adventure continues towards Nagarjun, a scenic hill located on the outskirts of Kathmandu. From the helicopter, you can admire the beauty of Nagarjun's verdant landscapes and the picturesque Nagarjun Forest Reserve. The hill is also home to the Nagarjun Palace, a historic site associated with Nepal's royal family.

As the helicopter soars higher, the flight takes you to the iconic Swyambhunath, also known as the Monkey Temple. This ancient religious complex perched atop a hill offers a captivating view of the Kathmandu Valley. From above, you can marvel at the majestic stupa, the fluttering prayer flags, and the playful monkeys that inhabit the premises.

The journey then leads towards the majestic Chandragiri, a hill station located southwest of Kathmandu. From the helicopter, you can witness the pristine landscapes of Chandragiri, with its rolling hills, terraced fields, and traditional Nepali villages. The highlight of this leg of the tour is the breathtaking panoramic view of the Ganesh Himal and Langtang range in the distance, showcasing the majestic beauty of Nepal's Himalayan peaks.

On the return flight, the helicopter flies over the Trishuli River, offering a captivating perspective of the winding waterway carving through the valleys. The river is known for its scenic beauty and is a popular destination for whitewater rafting enthusiasts.

Finally, the helicopter glides back to Tribhuvan International Airport, bringing this extraordinary adventure to a close. The Kathmandu Helicopter Sightseeing Tour allows you to witness the diverse and awe-inspiring landscapes of the Kathmandu Valley, from the spiritual sites and cultural landmarks to the lush green forests and magnificent mountain ranges, leaving you with unforgettable memories of Nepal's natural and cultural wonders.
