Faith has played a role in the physical, mental and emotional development of people for years now. When it comes to Hinduism, a religion most fulfilling, and centred around acceptance, growth, and spiritual wellness, the Chardham Yatra has always been considered a sacred ritual; a passage to salvation. Chardham is not just a pilgrimage; it’s a transformative journey of faith, devotion, and self-discovery. It is believed, according to mythology, that every Hindu must complete the Chardham pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime to help wash away all sins and to free the spirit from the plight of reincarnation.

In the beautiful northern state of Uttarakhand, another smaller circuit of temples worshipped are known as ‘Chota Chardham’ or ‘Mini Chardham’, a journey which follows four integral points of the yatra, all of which play their individual, significant roles, and are advised to be visited by every devout Hindu. The four sacred sites are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath.

Yamunotri, which is the inaugural site of the Chardham Yatra, honours Goddess Yamuna. Pilgrims trek to the Yamunotri temple, seeking blessings and purification in the holy waters. Alongside religious significance, the culture lays profound emphasis on environmental harmony, with locals preserving the Himalayan beauty. Nearby, sights include the hot springs, Yamuna Mata temple, and Shani temple.

Gangotri, dedicated to Goddess Ganga, marks the second site. It is here that the sacred Hindu river Ganga originates. The Gangotri temple is also considered to be an architectural marvel in itself. Pilgrims believe in the sanctity of the icy Bhagirathi River for purification of their sins and consider taking a dip in the holy river Ganga as a rite of attaining moksha. Apart from the religious importance, the Harsil village nestled nearby offers beautiful views of the Himalayas, encircled by verdant woods, terraced farmland, and snow-capped peaks. It is also popularly known for its apple orchards, making it an ideal retreat. Must-visit places include the Gangotri Temple, the picturesque Harsil village, Bagodi village and the ancient Laxmi Narayan Temple in Harsil.

Kedarnath, dedicated to Lord Shiva, stands amidst the majestic Kedarnath range. It is also one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. For devout worshippers of Lord Shiva, the temple is considered a must-visit site. The temple hosts daily aarti ceremonies and spiritual retreats, attracting seekers and scholars alike with its spiritually charged atmosphere. Discussions about spiritual teachings, religious literature, and meditation practices are held, giving guests a chance to reflect and learn about spirituality. Visitors immerse themselves in cultural and religious traditions while exploring nearby landmarks like Adi Shankaracharya Samadhi, Bhairav Nath temple, and the Triyuginarayan temple which is the venue of the holy union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

Badrinath, the final destination, reveres Lord Vishnu and is situated along the sacred Alaknanda River. One of the most sacred sites in the Vaishnavite faith, the temple is said to have been founded by Adi Shankaracharya in the eighth century. Visitors to Badrinath partake in a variety of religious observances, such as receiving darshan, attending the regular aarti ceremonies, as well as taking part in customs such as Abhishekam, the deity’s ritual bathing. A sense of respect and dedication is fostered by the spiritual activities. As a ritual, pilgrims are known to take a bath in the Tapt Kund (hot spring) before entering the temple premises. Apart from this, the village of Mana is located nearby, which adds to Badrinath’s cultural diversity. Travellers typically visit Mana to engage with the locals, who have a distinctive alpine lifestyle, and to experience local traditions and customs. The village is also referred to as the ‘first village of India’ because of its proximity to the Chinese border.

Why choose helicopter services ?

With an increase in awareness about the Chota Chardham yatra, and more people wanting to visit and seek blessings, it is also important to gauge the risk involved when travelling by road. The lanes are constricted, and people might get injured as horses pass them while making their way up or down. The shortcuts are physically demanding and have a high elevation. Gangotri is the lowest at around 10,200 feet, while Kedarnath is the highest at about 11,700 feet. Strenuous hikes and variable weather can be heavily taxing when travelling by road. For those over a particular age, the risk is increased while travelling by car or by foot, and such an attempt might have dangerous consequences.

However, this risk of exertion, muscle pain, and straining travel is greatly diminished when it comes to using helicopter services to complete the yatra. Especially for those over the age of thirty to forty, it stands as the most convenient and popular solution to complete the pilgrimage.

In recent years, there has been a remarkable surge in the demand for helicopter services catering to the Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand, driven by several key factors. Firstly, helicopters offer unparalleled time efficiency, significantly reducing the duration required to complete the pilgrimage compared to the arduous journeys by road. The traditional pilgrimage routes entail navigating challenging terrains and remote locations of the pilgrimage sites, which can be both time-consuming and physically demanding. Helicopters provide a swift and efficient alternative, allowing pilgrims to cover vast distances in a fraction of the time, thereby optimising their overall pilgrimage experience.

Moreover, helicopters ensure accessibility to high-altitude destinations with difficult terrains, making the pilgrimage more inclusive for individuals facing physical challenges or time constraints. This enhanced accessibility not only facilitates the participation of elderly or differently-abled pilgrims but also caters to the growing demand for premium travel experiences among modern pilgrims.

Additionally, the comfort and convenience afforded by helicopter travel appeal to pilgrims seeking to avoid the discomfort of long hours on winding mountain roads. Pilgrims can enjoy a smooth and hassle-free journey, free from the constraints of road congestion, fatigue, and discomfort associated with traditional modes of travel. Helicopter services offer spacious seating arrangements, climate-controlled cabins, and panoramic views of the majestic Himalayan landscapes, ensuring a luxurious and comfortable travel experience for pilgrims embarking on their spiritual journey.

Safety considerations also play a crucial role in driving the demand for helicopter services for the Chardham Yatra. Pilots undergo rigorous training, with most of them belonging to a defence background which ensures the safety and well-being of passengers throughout their journey. In remote and challenging terrains, helicopters offer unparalleled agility, allowing them to navigate through narrow valleys, cliffs, and adverse weather conditions with ease, thus minimizing the risks associated with road travel.

Lastly, the limited travel time window for the Chardham Yatra, typically undertaken between April-June and September-October due to favourable weather conditions, highlights the importance of helicopter services. In conclusion, the increasing demand for helicopter services for the Chardham Yatra is driven by multiple factors, including time efficiency, accessibility, comfort, safety, affluence, and the limited travel time window, making helicopter travel an indispensable aspect of modern pilgrimage experiences in Uttarakhand.

How to plan for Chardham Heli-tour in 2024?

When you are planning to visit the sacred sites and begin your pilgrimage, there are some measures that must be taken for planning Chardham by helicopter.

1. Selecting a Reputable Tour Operator:

Begin your journey by researching and choosing a reliable tour operator specializing in helicopter services for the Char Dham Yatra, such as Himalayan Heli, renowned since 1998 and operating Chardham Yatra services since 2019. Consider factors such as safety records, customer reviews, and the services offered.

2. Caution Against Scams:

Pilgrims need to be cautious of fake websites and social media pages leading to transactions over the phone or any deceptive portal for booking Heli tickets of Kedarnath Shuttle or any Chardham Heli-Tour. Always verify the authenticity of the booking platform to avoid scams.

3. Exploring Helicopter Packages:

Dive into the packages offered by different tour operators, ensuring they cover comprehensive services such as helicopter transportation, accommodation, meals, and other amenities. Compare packages to find one that aligns with your preferences and budget.

4. Early Booking:

Secure your spot by booking your Char Dham Yatra well in advance, as helicopter services can have limited availability, especially during the peak pilgrimage season. Early reservations are crucial to guarantee your seat.

5. Confirming Itinerary and Schedule

Communicate with the tour operator to confirm your itinerary, schedule, and flight details, familiarizing yourself with departure and arrival timings, as well as any specific instructions for passengers. Ensure clarity on all aspects of your journey to avoid confusion.

6. Preparing Necessary Documents:

Ensure you have all required documents for your pilgrimage, including valid identification, permits, and any special permissions for helicopter travel. Consult with the tour operator to clarify specific document requirements and avoid any last-minute complications.

7. Checking Health and Fitness:

Assess your health and fitness level, especially considering the high altitudes involved in helicopter travel. Consult with a healthcare professional to ensure you’re physically prepared for the journey, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.

8. Packing Essentials:

Pack essential items, including warm clothing, comfortable footwear, a first aid kit, personal hygiene items, and any specific items recommended by the tour operator. Keep in mind the limited baggage capacity on helicopters and pack accordingly.

9. Weather Considerations:

Stay informed about weather conditions during the Char Dham Yatra season, as helicopter services are subject to weather-related changes. Be prepared and stay updated on any adjustments to your travel plans to avoid inconvenience.

10. Emergency Contacts:

Keep emergency contact numbers of the tour operator, local authorities, and your accommodation readily available. Familiarize yourself with local helpline numbers and medical facilities at each destination to ensure prompt assistance in case of any emergencies.

In Hindu religion, there is an affirmation where they say “nothing can be more pious and religious than taking your parents to Chardham Yatra”. These four pious pilgrimage sites of Hindus are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, which are located in the Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. This holy journey starts from Yamunotri and ends at Badrinath for about 10 days or less, depending on the mode of transportation.


These holy shrines are open from around May to October. To be precise, the opening dates of the Chardham shrines are decided as per following:

Yamunotri: Opens on the day of Akshay Tritiya every year.

Gangotri: Opens on the day of Akshay Tritiya every year.

Kedarnath: Opening date is announced by the temple authorities on Maha Shivratri every year.

Badrinath: Opening date is announced by the temple authorities on Basant Panchmi every year.


However, things have drastically changed since the Pandemic. Around April 2021, the time when our country was suffering from the second COVID wave, the State government was ordered by the High Court to keep the Chardham Yatra closed for the pilgrims. 
It was finally opened for the public around Mid-September 2021, with tight travel restrictions initially.



ABOUT THE CHARDHAM SHRINES:

Yamunotri is said to be the source of the river Yamuna where it is said that if you take a bath in the river then all your sins are absolved into it and you get a new life to start. The accessibility to reach this place is on foot. You need to trek from Janki Chhati where the options for horses or palkis are there for the travelers.

Gangotri evening aarti is one of the things that you should witness, really something to witness. The temple is located at the banks of the Bhagirathi River where Goddess Ganga is worshipped. Since the town is set around the temple, it is not so tough to reach the temple.

Kedarnath is one of the temples which is completely dedicated to Lord Shiva at a high altitude. Initially, post-natural disaster there was a different route for the travelers but later on, it was constructed and formed the new route for the temple. It’s a 14km long trek with steep roads but then you can get the horses or palkis for the trek. Due to seasonal changes this temple opened from around May to October end and closed for the rest of the six months.

Badrinath is located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. This is the colorful temple that was founded in the 9th century by famous Indian philosopher, Adi Shankaracharya. The trek for Badrinath is not so tough and can easily be done and one can also visit the village Mana, which is the last village of India on that side.

CHARDHAM YATRA IN 2021:

We can’t overlook the fact that Chardham Yatra holds a significant place in every Indian’s life. But because of the pandemic, most people haven’t been able to visit the Chardhams in the past two years. 

As for Himalayan Heli, our helicopter services for the Chardham yatra remained closed during the May-June months, on account of the government guidelines. This was the second consecutive year since the pandemic that the Chardham yatra remained completely closed to the public during the peak May-June season.

However, in 2021, the COVID wave subsided across the country, and the yatra finally resumed Mid-September, with strict travel guidelines. The opening of the yatra was definitely a respite for us and all the pilgrims who were awaiting the Chardham’s opening all year long.

In October 2021, when it seemed completely stable and fit, the government decided to relax the guidelines for the yatris. After the relaxation of guidelines, there was a spike in the demand for Chardham packages as travel became all the more easier for the yatris.

It was truly a smooth yet jam-packed Chardham flying season. And, Himalayan Heli’s Chardham services went on from September 24th till 6th November, 2021 – The day of Bhai Duj, when Kedarnath Ji Dham closes.

The popular Chardham Yatra is the most loved and one of our most-demanded helicopter packages among the yatris, especially the elderly. And we, as an organization, felt content that we were able to successfully deliver the best of our services in 2021, despite several challenges. A special mention for this goes to our highly experienced and trained staff, who never hesitate to go the extra mile to curate the best experience for our passengers.

Here’s the glimpse of our Chardham operations 2021:

CHARDHAM YATRA BY HELICOPTER:

Chardham shrines are best accessible by helicopters – Safe, Fast & most comfortable mode of transport. Himalayan Heli operates the Chardham Yatra Tours by Helicopter in as short as a 1 Night/2 Days trip and a 4 Night/5 Days package. To say the least, Chardham yatra by Helicopter is an experience in itself.

The details of our two most demanded Chardham packages are as below:

1. Chardham 4 Nights/5 Days
For more details, visit: https://www.himalayanheli.com/chardhambyhelicopter.php

2. Chardham 1 Night /2 Days
For more details, visit: https://www.himalayanheli.com/chardhambyhelicopter1N2D.php

These packages are curated for two different types of clients – One who wishes to finish the yatra very fast, and the other who wishes to spend good quality time at each destination. Thus, the choice depends on the Yatris and what package they want to opt for.

The other most demanded package for the Chardham shrines is the DO-DHAM SAME DAY HELI-TOUR, where you get to cover both Kedarnath ji and Badrinath ji in a half day helicopter tour from Dehradun, and Sersi as well.

In the above-mentioned Chardham packages, the helicopter journey starts from Sahastradhara Heliport, Dehradun, and covers all four holy shrines for darshan.

Dehradun is the main base for our Helicopter tours – The starting and ending point of the yatra. Himalayan Heli picks up the yatris from airports or railway stations right when they arrive, and offers complimentary stay as well at Dehradun. The journey is made as smooth and easy by Himalayan Heli, as it can get.

If you travel to the Chardhams by local buses or cars then this may take up to 10 to 12 days or even more, which is a very arduous and painful journey, especially for elderly people and children. Also, the food and lodging is a concern in that case. While with Himalayan Heli, it’s like, the whole yatra is taken care of with the best possible experience and safety promised!

*** Himalayan Heli’s Helicopter tours for Do Dham and Ek Dham yatra can be checked out on our website here: https://www.himalayanheli.com/heli-tours.php ***

Just FYI, Himalayan Heli also provides Shuttle Services from Sersi for Kedarnath ji during the Chardham yatra, which is a per seat helicopter ticket booking for just Kedarnath ji from Sersi/Phata/Guptkashi. The Kedarnath shuttle services in 2021 opened around October 1st, 2021, and the online advance bookings for the same were done through GMVN

portal.


Here’s the glimpse of our Kedarnath operations 2021:

Keeping that in mind, Himalayan Heli’s Chardham Helicopter tours will be operational for the 2022 season.

Misty Mountain views, clouds floating, the abundance of nature, and people cheering “Zor se bolo – Jai Mata Di” all around, pretty much sums up the aura and vibes of one of the most popular and holiest pilgrimages of our times – Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine.

Popular the world over as the mother who fulfills whatever Her children wish for, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Ji resides in a Holy Cave located in the foothills of the Trikuta Mountains in Jammu and Kashmir. Every year there are lakhs of people visiting this holy place in the Jammu’s Reasi district near Katra to offer prayers to Mata Vaishno Devi.

The shrine is considered the holiest sojourn and is among the 108 Shakti Peethas. Shri Mata Vaishno is the incarnation of Goddess Durga, believed to be an abode of the goddess, the holy cave is located at an altitude of 5,200 feet above sea level

“Har Har Mahadev” all around, temple bells, highly energetic devotees, panoramic views of snow-capped mountains & icy cold winds describes Amarnath Yatra.

A journey that is on the bucket list of almost every Shiva Bhakt. Situated at an altitude of 3,888 meters, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the holy Indian Shrine- Amarnath Cave is visited by Indians in abundance every year in July/August. 

Amarnath Cave is a Hindu Pilgrimage where a Shivlinga appears naturally in the form of ice, holds significant religious importance, and is considered as the holiest shrine by Hindus all over the world. Legend has it that the Amarnath Yatra was undertaken by Lord Shiva himself along with Goddess Parvati, where Shiva narrated the immortality lessons to Parvati.

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Valley of Flowers trek is one of India’s most popular treks in the Himalayan Region of Uttarakhand state, which is also one of India’s oldest known treks. It is situated at a height of 3600 m above sea level.

It is a moderate level trek with slightly longer trekking days and steep trails to Hemkund Sahib, which is not only famous among Indians, but it’s on the bucket list of foreigners as well.

Valley of Flowers National Park is believed to have been accidentally discovered in 1931, by 3 Britishers who lost their way. It is spread across 87 sq km in the Chamoli District and forms one of the two core zones (the other being the Nanda Devi National Park) of the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve.

Thanks to the advancement in technology and air transport services by helicopters that the transportation of cargo has become possible almost at every place. External Load Operations (ELO), by definition, means- the process of lifting underslung loads by helicopters and transporting them to the areas which are inaccessible otherwise. 

In a country like ours, Cargo transportation by air has mostly been associated with relief work, military transportation, rescue operations, etc. However, in recent times, Helicopters have started getting recognition for being used for External Load Operations. These services are gradually becoming popular in India, unlike foreign nations where the demand and applications of ELO services are vast, however, this is expected to multiply here shortly as this is one of the most useful utilities of helicopters globally. 

In India, where power supply and infrastructure is still present at very inferior levels (or even non-existent) in remote destinations, the application of helicopters can greatly be explored to easily reach out to these regions and construct infrastructure facilities & powerlines for faster development.

Continue reading “Himalayan Heli: Pioneers in Helicopter Underslung External Load Operations in India”


One of the most sought-after services in recent times, LiDAR- Light Detection & Ranging, is a remote sensing method used to examine the surface of the earth. It’s touted as one of the most accurate & effective technologies for the creation of 3-Dimensional topographical aerial maps.

Since the demand for LiDAR services has gone up for capturing geodata, the use of Helicopters has significantly increased for this service. Why Helicopters? You see, Helicopters can access areas that are not possible to reach otherwise. Moreover, they can hover over an area under inspection & capture the required data from different angles & perspectives, which can help in acquiring higher resolution imagery, covering a much wider area from the air in a much shorter time than it would be possible to cover by land. Also, helicopters are much more manoeuvrable in high winds and high altitudes than UAVs (drones), and most importantly they can equip and fly LiDAR equipment which is currently not possible with UAVs. 

Now, for over two decades, Himalayan Heli has been operating Aerial work service s in India for important Government Organisations and leading private giants. After providing a vast range of reliable & dedicated heli-services for so long, we are touted as India’s leading helicopter company in the Aerial work industry, which is one of our primary segments of heli-services.

Nestled in the lap of mesmerizing Himalayas, in the Indian state- Uttarakhand, Char Dham holds a significant spot in the hearts of Indian Hindu devotees. Char Dham is a pilgrimage circuit, located in the Garhwal region in Uttarakhand, which includes 4 sites to be covered to complete the circuit- Yamunotri Dham, Gangotri Dham, Kedarnath Dham, and Badrinath Dham. It is believed that, if you are seeking moksha and salvation by washing away your sins, Char Dham is a must-do Yatra at least once in your lifetime.

Completing the Char Dham Circuit is very challenging. It requires one to cover approx. 1000 km from Dehradun via road and 37 km of the trek over the period of 10-12 days, which requires a lot of time, stamina, preparation, and more than anything- willpower.

The major constraint that one has to face while Char Dham via road is “The road” itself. As in, it’s a very bumpy ride & a significant portion of the whole stretch is under construction. Mountain Roads can be tricky; hence it demands extra precautionary measures to be taken.

Whereas, it’s not the case in Heli Tours. Rather, it’s the opposite. While flying, one can enjoy the mesmerizing aerial views of the mountains.

Over seven lakh pilgrims have visited the Kedarnath Dham during 2018, this is the highest footfall to the holy shrine in almost four decades as per the state government officials. This is the highest number of pilgrims ever recorded since the time data of pilgirms is available with the government authorities. As stated by a government official, the records of pilgrims have been kept since 1981.

 

Earlier, the highest number of tourists visiting the shrine was recorded in 2012, where 5.83 lakh pilgrims came to Kedarnath. The increase in yatri numbers since the tragedy of 2013 can be attributed to the availability of better facilities by government authorities in the present day. Many yatri conveniences have been created, and are still being created for future betterment. All of government’s initiatives greatly help the helicopter operators as well for smooth running of operations.
