Ampersand's Travels...

The ultimate luxury adventure: Rajasthan + Mount Everest by private helicopter

Why settle for one destination when you could have two?! If you want to squeeze more experiences from your holiday, we highly recommend this two-pronged trip... Head off to explore the exotic sights and fascinating history of Rajasthan to luxuriate at India’s finest palace hotels, then fly direct from Delhi to Kathmandu, Nepal, and hop on a private helicopter tour of Everest and the Annapurna mountain range. Pace your trip as you wish and depending on how much time you have, consider spending a week to 10 days in India exploring the Golden Triangle and Rajasthan before setting off on your Himalayan helicopter adventure, which can be tailored from 3 to 5 days.

Nepal is home to 8 of the highest mountain peaks in the world including the tallest, Everest. This itinerary will enable you to view Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks at close quarters. Your journey by private helicopter will also allow you to experience the varied and fascinating landscapes, peoples, monasteries and mystical towns that this remarkable country has to offer. There are now helicopters based in both Lukla and Pokhara so helicopters no longer have to be chartered from Kathmandu. Best of all, your guide for the trip will be Tashi Tenzing Sherpa, the grandson of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Sir Edmund Hillary's partner on his first summit of Everest in 1953. Tashi has climbed Everest 3 times and has an intimate knowledge of mountaineering. We can add some trekking in each location if you're feeling inspired by Tashi's incredible trekking accomplishments - at your own pace, of course!

This promises to be a spiritual journey accessing some of the most soul-stirring scenery on earth whilst not forfeiting your creature comforts. You will have exceptionally experienced guides, a French-made helicopter and the most luxurious and charming hotels in Nepal, like Dwarikas Hotel in Kathmandu, Yeti Mountain Lodge in Lukla and the Shangrila Hotel in Pokhara.
