chardham yatra by helicopter

The Char Dham Yatra holds a special place in the hearts of Hindu devotees. Comprising the four sacred shrines of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, this pilgrimage is a spiritual journey through the serene and majestic Himalayas. While traditionally, the Char Dham Yatra involves extensive travel and trekking, modern advancements in aviation have introduced a convenient alternative: the Char Dham Yatra by helicopter. Alaska Aviation Services is at the forefront of providing this unique and efficient way to complete this sacred journey.

Spiritual Significance of the Char Dhams

Each of
the four Char Dhams has a distinct spiritual essence and significance:

  • Yamunotri:
    Dedicated to Goddess Yamuna, the temple at Yamunotri is the starting point
    of the Char Dham Yatra. It is believed that taking a dip in the holy
    waters of the Yamuna can cleanse devotees of their sins and bestow
  • Gangotri:
    The shrine of Gangotri is dedicated to Goddess Ganga. The sacred river
    Ganga is believed to have descended from heaven at this very spot.
    Pilgrims come here to pay their respects to the river that is revered as a
  • Kedarnath:
    One of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, the Kedarnath temple is
    situated amidst snow-clad peaks. It is believed that visiting Kedarnath
    grants devotees liberation from the cycle of life and death.
  • Badrinath:
    Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the Badrinath temple is nestled between the Nar
    and Narayan mountain ranges. It is considered one of the holiest temples
    in Hinduism, where Lord Vishnu is worshipped in his dual form of Narayan
    and Nara.

The Convenience of Char Dham by Helicopter

Time Efficiency

The traditional Char Dham Yatra can take up to 10-12 days, involving long journeys and treks. In contrast, the Char Dham Yatra by helicopter offered by Alaska Aviation Services can be completed in 4-5 days. This makes it an ideal option for those with limited time, including elderly devotees who may find the traditional route strenuous.

Comfort and Safety

Helicopter travel offers unparalleled comfort and safety. The helicopters used by Alaska Aviation Services are equipped with advanced navigation systems and are operated by experienced pilots. This ensures a smooth and secure journey, free from the physical challenges of trekking through rugged terrain.

Breathtaking Aerial Views

One of the highlights of the Char Dham Yatra by helicopter is the stunning aerial views of the Himalayas. Flying over the majestic peaks, lush valleys, and winding rivers provides a unique perspective that enhances the spiritual experience. The sight of the temples nestled amidst nature’s splendor is truly awe-inspiring.

The Helicopter Tour Experience

Departure from Dehradun

The helicopter tour begins from Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand. Pilgrims are welcomed at the Sahastradhara Helipad, where they board the helicopter. The journey is meticulously planned to ensure that each stop provides ample time for darshan (prayer) and exploration.

What is the Rule of Char Dham?


The first stop is Yamunotri. The helicopter lands at Kharsali Helipad, from where pilgrims are taken to the Yamunotri temple. The short trek or palanquin ride to the temple is a serene journey through lush green hills and thermal springs. The temple, dedicated to Goddess Yamuna, is a place of peace and devotion.


Next, the helicopter flies to Harsil, the helipad nearest to Gangotri. A scenic drive through picturesque landscapes takes pilgrims to the Gangotri temple. Situated on the banks of the holy Bhagirathi River, the temple is a site of immense spiritual significance, dedicated to Goddess Ganga.


The journey continues to Kedarnath. The helicopter lands at Phata or Sersi, and a short helicopter shuttle or trek takes pilgrims to the Kedarnath temple. Nestled amidst snow-capped peaks, the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva exudes a divine aura that leaves pilgrims in awe.


The final stop is Badrinath. The helicopter lands at the Badrinath helipad, from where a short drive takes pilgrims to the temple. Located between the Nar and Narayan mountain ranges, the Badrinath temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is a magnificent structure with intricate architecture and a deeply spiritual ambiance.
