Importance of Char Dham:
According to Hindu Mythology, any religious tour or Yatra would be incomplete if you do not perform the Char Dham Yatra. The Char Dham identified in the scripture is Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangothri and Yamunothri, which are located in the serene and stunningly beautiful environment of the Great Himalaya Mountains. These religious places receive thousands of tourists during the yatra season. Normally, people travel to these places by chartered buses. However, considering the treacherous travel by road, some section of the tourists prefers to travel using helicopter services. Many popular tour operators conduct Char Dham Yatra Packages by helicopter as well as by road.
Wonderful natural scenery:
As you know, travelling by helicopter saves a considerable amount of time as also the travel fatigue. At the same time, while travelling by helicopter you can enjoy the picturesque surroundings of Himalayas and watch the mighty rivers Yamuna, Bhagirathi, Mandakini and Alakananda flowing through Yamunothri, Gangothri, Kedarnath and Badrinath respectively.
The other salient features of Char Dham Yatra Packages offered by the travel agencies are briefly explained here:
- The Yatra is arranged by travel agencies that have more than 15 to 20 years of experience. As a result, they arrange the travel in such a way that the client is not put to any kind of inconvenience. The agencies even undertake to book the accommodation so that the tourist would enjoy their stay in these divine places.
- Safety of passengers has been the matter of prime concern. The agencies hire helicopters that are in perfect operational condition with adequately trained and experience pilot and other flight attendants. Every passenger is covered with an appropriate insurance policy. Many of these travel agencies have incident-free safety tag or record.
- The packages include travel from helipad to the temple for which the agency will arrange suitable car.
- In fact, some of the agencies even arrange for local guides who ensure that your tour is made comfortable. If you are planning on performing any religious rites in these Char Dhams, the guide would assist you by arranging for a Pandit.
Every year hundreds of pilgrims to Char Dham avail the service of these travel agencies. These pilgrims have expressed complete satisfaction with the services provided these travel agencies.
