Kedarnath Yatra By Helicopter

Happy Traveler Says

Customer Review
Manish Kedarnath Yatra

After Covid, we really wished to get darshan of baba kedar. Since we were travelling with a small son of 4 years of age, we wanted to go there by helicopter. While scrolling we came across yatra by heli company and immediately connected with them through whatsapp number given on website. The trip started off early in the morning and we were picked up from our hotel in Dehradun and dropped off at the helipad of sahastradhara. The helicopter ride was on time, very smooth and mind blowing. My son faced no problems while in the helicopter and he was having fun as well. At the phata helipad we changed to a government chopper, easily and we were finally dropped off at the kedarnath helipad near the temple. We were then taken for an assisted VIP darshan at the temple. It was a very magical experience. We were given about 2.5 to 3 hours to complete everything and then brought back to helipad and flown to Dehradun helipad. I never expected kedarnath yatra by helicopter to be this relaxing and smooth. Contrary to what people believe, booking a helicopter yatra package through an agency really helped us out. Thank you to the entire team and our tour manager for everything they had arranged.
