Chardham Yatra by Himalayan Heli: COVID Safety at It’s Best

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.


Good News here is, one can now do Char Dham Yatra in a duration as short as just One Night and Two days. It is possible with Himalayan Heli. Not only is the tour quick, but also highly comfortable and smooth. The whole itinerary is well planned and executed by Himalayan Heli Crew which makes the experience worth it.

Above all, what makes Himalayan Heli tours even more interesting is- the wide variety of tour options to choose from, such as the Fast-tracked 1N2D Chardham tour, or the ‘Most-demanded’ Same-Day Do Dham and Ek Dham tours.

Himalayan Heli is one of the oldest “Helicopter Tours” providers in the country and operating in the Chardham region since 2010, which makes Himalayan Heli the most experienced & reliable service provider. We, at Himalayan Heli, are specialized in providing customized, hassle-free, pleasant, cost-effective & well-curated pilgrimage tours. Among all, Char Dham is one of our personal favorites and most “in-demand” tours.

When times are difficult and the whole country is locked inside, one thing that everyone wishes to do right now is- to travel. At the same time, safety is the major concern and priority. We have always proudly claimed that “SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY” and even in COVID times, we are not behind. In the new normal, we have taken our safety standards to much higher levels.

Last year, in 2020, after the upliftment of travel restrictions in Uttarakhand, Himalayan Heli resumed its operations starting Sept. 26th & during October and November there was a significant spike in Himalayan Heli Chardham Yatra tours and we are expecting the same in 2021. We would like to give a special mention to our Yatris who showed their trust in our services, even more than Pre-Covid times. It’s only because of that “trust”, we conducted a significant number of Chardham Heli tours after the upliftment of Uttarakhand travel restrictions. We even offered exclusive discounts to our Yatris which made our tours even more affordable. 

Let’s accept the fact that the new normal is going to stay with us for long. Hence, the style of travel will change, and as a matter of fact, it has already changed.
