Trip Overview

Returning to Kathmandu from Tumlingtar by Tumlingtar to Kathmandu Helicopter Flight is common among Makalu Barun Conservation Area tourists or Makalu Base Camp Trekkers. The off-the-beaten Makalu Base Camp Trekking takes you to the base camp of the world's 5th highest mountain, Mt. Makalu. Hiking up to the base camp and returning to Tumlingtar becomes very tiring. And while returning to Kathmandu, you may miss the airline's flight on time.

As many airline companies have only one flight from Tumlingtar to Kathmandu, around 11 am, there may need to be more adequate for people flying to the capital city. On top, a slight change in weather can cause a flight delay or even cancellation for days. At such times, flying on a helicopter from Tumlingtar to Kathmandu only becomes a viable option.
