      Helicopter Journey to mountain deserts; Magnificent Upper Mustang

      Helicopter trip to Upper Mustang, trip of a lifetime and it was perfectly arranged. We get back from Everest Base Camp and looking to explore more of the Nepal and took the helicopter to Mustang, Nepal's mountain deserts. Mustang feels very different from the rest of the Nepal Himalaya, and it is geologically distinct. Helicopter land at Pokhara then to Jomsom where we also visit Muktinath Temple than travel Lo Manthang. The Breakfast we did at this place will be one of the favourite for lifetime. Everything was well arranged from the airport transfer, helicopter timing, special permits and many more. Thank you Aspiration Adventure.

      Helicopter Tour to Lo Manthang, Jomsom and Everest; Premium Experience

      Me and My husband was planning our trip to Himalayas country and select Nepal. We wanna do something extraordinary vacation than the regular itinerary and contact somehow with Anjan through online (best decision made and lucky to find him and company). We wanna visit the top destination Everest and Mustang within limited days time frame. We had experience at Dwarika’s in Kathmandu and Dhulikhel, Helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes with champagne Breakfast at the Hotel Everest View. Instead of Kathmandu, We took helicopter from Everest to Mustang change in the geography was mind-blowing. We had stay at Royal Mustang Resort in Lo-Manthang and experience the area. One of the best itinerary and premium experience we ever had, Once in a life time memories. Anjan was himself there to simplify the service during this tour. Thank you.
