About Kedarnath

Kedarnath shrine is one of the most revered Lord Shiva shrines located high up in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand. This shrine comes with Jyotirlingam of lord Shiva; the highest among all Jyotirlingams that our country has.

The Kedarnath temple receives thousands of devotees each year and kedarnath, being a part of the Chota chardham circuit, is revered much among the pilgrimage circuit of the country. Each year during the Chardham yatra season devotees make their way to Kedarnath dham to pay their tribute to Kedarnath ji or Lord Shiva. The temple of Kedarnath can be reached by traversing a rugged mountainous pathway and this rigorous trek commences from Gaurikund and covers a distance of about 14kms until you reach the holy Kedarnath shrine. The journey is tedious and perilous and even time consuming. The exhaustion from the journey is also utterly high and by the time you reach the temple your legs will be swollen and sore from the rigorous, up-hill trek.

These days the Kedarnath yatra by Helicopter has become one of the most opted for options to reach the Kedarnath temple especially for all those who wish to evade the hardships of the long and time-taking route to Kedarnath. Helicopter yatra commences from Dehradun and brings you back to Dehradun after you have completed the darshan.

Kedarnath is one of the high points of the Chardham yatras, a religious duty for most Hindus. Kedarnath is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in India and the Temple here is said to be very ancient but the current structure dates back to the 8th century AD, said to have been constructed under the supervision of Adi Sankaracharya. Heavy stone slabs are used in the construction and it is a magnificent example of ancient Indian architecture and sculpture styles. The temple is at a height of about 3500 meters and has snow topped Mount Kedardome as the backdrop with the Mandakini River flowing past. It is said that the Pandavas sought Lord Shiva to pray for forgiveness in the aftermath of the Mahabharata war but Shiva eluded them and sought refuge here in the shape of a bull, burying himself till only the hump showed through. Inside the temple is a hump, worshipped as Lord Shiva in his Sadashiva Avatar. The Temple is open for worship from April-May to October and it is a 14 kilometer arduous trek over mountainous terrain from Gaurikund.

Kedarnath Helicopter Tours

Kedarnath Helicopter Service

Not everyone has the time, the inclination or is in physical shape to undertake the long trek and helicopter Yatras are now proving popular. You can reach Kedarnath by helicopter either from Phata near Rudraprayag or from Jolly Grant airport at Dehradun. You start in the morning and can return the same day evening or have an overnight stay and return the next day. Aviation companies operate Bell helicopters able to seat 5 to 6 and you can charter it or book a seat for Kedarnath Darshan either from Dehradun or from Delhi. Tour and aviation companies arrange timings so that you arrive in time for the Darshan and get at least one to two hours before returning to Dehradun or Delhi on the same day. You have to travel to Rudraprayag from Rishikesh, a distance of about 140 km and from there take a taxi to Agastya Muni helipad, about 17 km away. It takes less than an hour for the to and fro helicopter ride. Catch the early morning flight for the best view and early Darshan. Keep in mind there are limitations about hand baggage so leave all baggage at a hotel in Rudraprayag or Rishikesh. Keep in mind that you have to arrive at the helipad in Phata/Agastya Muni at least 2-3 hours before flight departure.

Typical itinerary

  • Board an early morning helicopter flight from Dehradun airport that will take you directly to Kedarnath and get you back the same day. If you opt to stay the night, you have to make your own stay and food arrangements.
  • Board a flight from Delhi directly to Kedarnath, ideal for people with less time and those wishing to travel direct from the city to the holy shrine.
  • Travel by road all the way to Phata/Agastya Muni and take a round helicopter trip, starting the morning. You arrive at around noon or by 2 PM, get to worship the lord at the shrine and then return the same day by evening. If you opt to stay at Kedarnath, you pay extra. You also pay extra for priority Darshan.

Helicopters are safe, fast and the most convenient way of visiting Kedarnath for Darshan of Lord Shiva. All things considered, it also works out cheaper since you can complete the trip inside a day or two at the most.

We are taking the Panicker Travels tour for Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath starting May 22nd from Delhi. We need to do helicopter booking for Phata to Kedarnath and back on 29th May. We were told by Panicker Travels that helicopter booking is not available as it is already fully booked. Is there any way to book directly through the helicopter travel operators ?
