The Himalayas

Indian Subcontinent specialist Ampersand Travel has added helicopter tours of the Himalaya to their programme, including a unique opportunity to play golf on the ‘roof of the world’.

The spectacular four-night programme includes a helicopter flight to play two holes of golf at 14,500 feet, against the backdrop of Mount Everest.

Visitors can spend a maximum of an hour at this special spot due to the altitude and so return to Kathmandu to finish the game. The fabulous Gorkana Forest course just outside the capital is regularly voted in the world’s top ten most beautiful golf courses & is the perfect place to end this most memorable of games.

En route, fly over Gokyo Lake, Everest and Amadablan base camps, through some of the world’s most stunning mountain scenery.

The rest of the itinerary includes a visit to the fascinating temple complex of Boudinath, home to thousands of Tibetan refugees; a scenic fixed-wing flight along the spectacular Langtang and Jugal ranges to Lukla to see the surrounding valleys and peaks, and the Likla Sherpa monastery; plus a tour of Bkatapur and the Kathmandu Valley.

This fabulous four night Himalayan Experience costs from £4,995 per person including all hotel accommodation, meals and drinks, helicopter flight, guides throughout including Everest summiteer, all transfers, sightseeing and entry permits costs.
