Reasons to go on a Heli Tour in Nepal
Regardless, or perhaps because, of its unadorned variance from the widely popular high-altitude teahouse treks of the Everest and Annapurna regions, Heli Tour is still one of the best ways to experience Nepal’s grandiose Himalayas that stand potently at the northern territories of Nepal. The Himalayan mountain range itself has its own unique heritage as its history and the story behind its formation has led many geologists to astonishment in the past century. However, with the advancement in our technology and improvements in various scientific fields, we soon found out that the Himalayas formed due to a gargantuan collision of the Eurasian Plate with the Indian Plate that is still continues today as it lifts up the Himalayas by 1cm each year.
Himalayas are not just a monumental feature of Nepal, they are the symbol of true perseverance and tenacity as they attract thousands of first-hand visitors towards it every year. And to just get a short but never forgetting view of these majestic snowy peaks, foreigners are willing to go extreme measures even if it means to trek at higher elevations above 3,000 meters, risk altitude sickness and spend some nights out at places where temperatures can normally drop all the way down to -10 degrees, well below freezing level. It takes a lot of courage, determination and endurance to make oneself go through some of the toughest days of their entire life, just so they can stand alongside the mighty Himalayas. Hence, trekking is the most preferred travel activity in Nepal which lets people from various nations across the world to go on a journey of their lifetime to the Himalayas.
But all in all, trekking requires a lot of individual capacity both mentally and physically. Trekkers need to remain cautious and vigilant about their health at all times and keep a look out various dangers lurking around their trekking trails. Besides that, you have to consider the risk of getting Altitude Sickness. And what I mean by Altitude Sickness is that, it’s a kind of illness caused by ascent to high altitudes 3,000 meters above sea level which is a typical elevation that is well crossed by foreign explorers and travelers in order to reach places like Everest Base Camp – the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Annapurna Base Camp – the base camp of the world’s tenth highest mountain and Kanchenjunga Base Camp – the base camp of the world’s 3rd highest mountain.
In addition to all of that, you also need to presume the fact that a simple trekking to EBC can take up to 12 to 14 days of holiday in Nepal. And if you really can’t afford that much time, then you might have to cancel visiting the EBC, totally. However, as an alternative, you may want to skip some overnight destination and hike up higher so that you can shorten your trek. And that can be pretty dangerous for your well-being as you can be a victim to Altitude Sickness which can even lead to your death if not treated at the right time. Therefore, if you really think of it my way and consider all the prerequisites for a general trek then you might come to a conclusion that a ‘Heli Tour’ is not so bad after all.
You do have to acknowledge the clear-cut fact that Heli Tours are way more convenient and easy for everyone. Individuals don’t need to think about their physical condition, age or time limit to go on a Heli Tour to Everest Base Camp. They just need to make sure that they get into the chopper in time before flight. And the rest will be a handled superbly. In just a matter of few minutes, you will see the majestic Himalayas coming upfront and enlarging as you fly closer and closer to them. What can take you about a week or so will just take a couple of minutes and before you know it, you will have reached your dream destination – Everest Base Camp or any other destination you wish to visit before flying back home.
So, in this way, I presume to you that, going on a Heli Tour might not be a total waste at all even if you are running out of time or don’t have physical capabilities to endure a long trek up in the Himalayan terrains.
