Annapurna Base Camp Heli trek is very popular adventure activities among the adventure lovers nowadays. The mountain scenery on the way to Annapurna Base Camp is a great one but one issue is that you spend most of your time trekking up the canyon of the Modi Khola which is fairly deep and obscures direct line of sight with the peaks. You start to get out of the canyon after you reach the small village of Doban which is close to Annapurna Base Camp. One of the peaks you will see before reaching Doban is Machapuchre or Fish Tail which is an amazing peak and often called the Matterhorn of the Himalayas. Once you start to make your way into the Annapurna Sanctuary the views are of course great and at Base Camp you are standing directly in front of Annapurna and surrounded by peaks on all sides.
Annapurna Base Camp Heli trek is the obvious holy grail of this trek. At 4,130 m, trekkers are surrounded on all sides by spectacular snow-capped peaks, like the supreme Annapurna I (8,091m) and its sisters Annapurna South, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna III.
