Langtang Heli-Trek and Climb

Catch a helicopter ride and in just two weeks you’ll experience the very best Nepal has to offer

This incred­i­ble trip begins with a breath-tak­ing heli­copter flight through the heart of the Nepal Himalayas and cli­max­es with an option­al climb of 18,700-foot / 5700-meter Yala Peak. Yala Peak is a straight­for­ward ascent per­fect for aspir­ing climbers seek­ing a stun­ning alpine land­scape and a straight­for­ward moun­taineer­ing objec­tive. Skills will be taught on the trip which will allow non-climb­ing trekkers the thrill of stand­ing on a Himalayan sum­mit. Lang­tang Nation­al Park, the first Himalayan nation­al park, con­tains the objec­tive, Yala Peak. Walk­ing in the heart of the beau­ti­ful Lang­tang region, trekkers will find few­er peo­ple than the Ever­est and Anna­pur­na cir­cuits while enjoy­ing amaz­ing views along the way; in par­tic­u­lar the stun­ning snow peaks of Lang­tang Lirung (23,773 ft / 7246 m), the 99th high­est moun­tain in the world), Lenpo Gang (23,238 ft / 7083 m), Dor­je Lak­pa (22,933 ft / 6990 m) and a myr­i­ad of oth­er small­er” mountains.

Flight Information

The total num­ber of days for your trip includes all trav­el to and from your des­ti­na­tion, with some excep­tions. Dates list­ed on the web­site start with your depar­ture date from the U.S. and include the day you arrive home. 

For this trip you will need to arrive in Kath­man­du, Nepal on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the US. your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Kath­man­du, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3. You will be met at the air­port by a Moun­tain Mad­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trans­ferred to your hotel. 

Your return flight home should be sched­uled for the sec­ond to last day of the itinerary.

Please con­tact our office for any help need­ed with your flight schedule.
