Helicopter Rescue Service
Thousands of tourists come to Nepal each year, most of them go trekking, mountaineering or on pilgrimage tours. Sometimes people get sick or injured while being in remote areas, which are not accessible by car. In severe cases a rescue flight or medical evacuation is necessary. Our company, Adventure Treks Nepal, is specialized in these flights and has carried out hundreds of them. We put a lot of effort into making the time waiting for the helicopter as soon as possible. We also arrange hospital rooms and ambulances transporting the client from the Helicopter Airport to the hospital or medical facility.
Nepal offers a lot of sights often far apart from each other and often in remote areas which are not easily accessible. If either time is limited or you just don’t want to go through the strenuous activity of trekking into one of the remote areas yourself, there is a simple solution - fly there with a helicopter. This will give you the opportunity to access remote places in a fast and comfortable way. Adventure Treks Nepal provides the following helicopter tours, but can also organize custom tours on request.
