The Do Dham Yatra by Helicopter and Char Dham Yatra By Helicopter refers to the pilgrimage to the four sacred shrines in the Indian state of Uttarakhand—Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath. This pilgrimage is considered highly auspicious in Hinduism, and many devotees undertake the journey to seek spiritual blessings. Given the challenging terrain and remote locations of these shrines, The helicopter has become a popular and convenient option for pilgrims, especially those with physical limitations or time constraints. Helicopter services offer a quicker and more comfortable way to visit these sacred sites.
The sacred shrines at high altitudes close for about six months each year. The Do Dham Yatra /Char Dham Yatra typically opens in summer, around April or May, and closes as winter begins, usually in October or November.
People believe it’s best to start the Do Dham Yatra / Char Dham Yatra in a clockwise direction. So, the journey begins at Yamunotri, then goes to Gangotri, Kedarnath, and finally Badrinath. You can travel by road or take a helicopter. Some folks also do a Do Dham Yatra, visiting just Kedarnath and Badrinath.
