MARDI HIMAL BASE CAMP HELICOPTER RIDE HELICOPTER RIDE TO MARDI HIMAL BASE CAMP Mr. Nir Lama called me early in the morning (6.00 am) on a Sunday in early July 2022 with the good news that the weather was suitable for a shared helicopter ride. I had told him a few days before that I would be on standby. So lucky and thankful that Nir was able to arrange a taxi pickup from the hotel to send me to the international airport to register for the Helicopter Ride. Everything was properly arranged at ... + See more the airport when I arrived with Mr. Dill (the representative of the helicopter company) waiting to meet me and sorting out all the paperwork. About 20 minutes or so later I was airborne and on my way to Mardi Himal Base Camp. This was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE to be up there where I was allowed to stay for about 30 minutes before taking the flight back. The ride itself there took about 25 minutes or so. If one has the opportunity then this has to be on your Bucket List. It is once in a lifetime experience. My photos do not do justice to the actual view that one is able to enjoy of Annapurna when one is up close and personally facing the mountain right in front of you. I would highly recommend Mr. Nir Lama and his services to arrange the helicopter ride. It is worth the cost (cheaper if shared of course) for an unforgettable experience. The helicopter pilot Mr. Ranesh was superb and gave an explanation of all the big mountains at the Annapurna Range as we were flying and made me feel very welcome. Go go go for it! ... - See less
