Best Time for the Annapurna Helicopter Tour

The Annapurna Helicopter Tour is available all year round throughout the day, but visibility must be clear. As a result, autumn and spring are the best times to visit Annapurna by helicopter. Winter (December to February) is ideal, although the landing area will be covered with snow. The rainy season is not recommended for helicopter rides since the cloud and foggy weather reduces visibility and make flying nearly impossible.

So the best months for an Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter tour are February, March, April, and May. Other months for helicopter flights are September, October, November, and December.
