We offer Helicopter flights and rides for example to simply enjoy the scenery of the Himalaya. There is no similar experience then the up and down and left and right feeling on such a 'flightseeing' ride! The Himalayan range is for sure one of the most breathtaking location in the world for this scenic roundtrip in a helicopter! Or book a mountain ride as a gift for somebody very special to you, but make sure the person you surprise with such a present is definitely 'heightproof'. The other way to use a helicopter flight is, if you want to climb some peak without the trekking before the actual climbing. We fly you directly to the nearest starting point for your summit climb. Not to forget how important rescue Helicopter flights are for emercency requirements. All this and more we organize for you, your group, your family....is there anything better than flying!?

Nepal's trekking industry is being dramatically transformed, because of roads being built at many places where before nice trekking trails passed. For example the  around Annapurna trek is roadless only at a very small parts now.
Swiss Family Treks and Expedition, in collaboration with Yeti airlines is responding by flying directly to high mountain valleys from where the trekkers can explore isolated areas. In earlier times this areas were difficult to reach, now with this new concept diffrent remote regions are reached within 1 day.
The following airfields are newly reopened or will be reopened soon:

>Talcha Airport in the far West close to Rara lake and starting point for fantastic  
   treks in the Mugu aerea, where nature is dominant in its full wildness.
>Syanboche the old airfield in the Everest region shortens your trek to Gyoko and  
  other destinations.
>Langtang for the Ganja La trek or just for flying in and walking out.
>Dhorpatan for the Dhaulagiri Treks.
>Taplejung shortens the trek to Kanchenjunga and other destinations in the east.

We are very happy to make reservations for you and to give you the possibility to make treks You couldn't have done before due to lack of time or You didn't wanted to do, because of the roads.
