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.

Below are some sights you can expect to see on this unique helicopter tour of Nepal - please contact us for more information on +44 (0) 207 289 6100 or info@ampersandtravel.com



I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
