On Top of the World: The Himalayas with Remote Lands
Asia boasts many astonishingly beautiful destinations, but none truly take the breath away like the Himalayas. From the stunning heights of Everest, K2 and Annapurna to the lush green valleys of Pokhara and Punakha, the sheer scale and grandeur of the world's highest mountain range never fail to amaze visitors. And the range of activities available, including mountaineering, trekking, biking, paragliding, wildlife/birding and culture, make this the perfect destination for adventure travelers, nature-lovers and sightseers alike.
Remote Lands has years of experience in designing bespoke Himalayan holidays for travelers of all activity levels. Whether you want to climb mountains or just gaze at them from a private helicopter, email us on [email protected] and we'll help you hit the Himalayan heights.
Himalayan Helicopter Experiences in Nepal
Helicopter straight up to Everest Base Camp and skip 10 days of arduous trekking. The catch is that you can only stay 15 minutes at 18,000 feet, then fly back down to 13,000 feet for a lovely lunch, then back to Kathmandu. Or charter a chopper to Mustang for a day or two visit to the former ancient kingdom that is one of the last true remote lands and normally requires a week trek in each direction! Read more...
