8.14am 7th July 2010 - Travel

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 & 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 & 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 & Jugal ranges to Lukla to see the surrounding valleys & peaks, & the Likla Sherpa monastery; plus a tour of Bkatapur & the Kathmandu Valley.

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