Tour Itinerary

The Char Dham yatra of Badri Kedar will start off from Sahastradhara helipad in Dehradun at 7 am in the morning. All the passengers are expected to arrive at least an hour prior to the time of departure so that your ground formalities are completed and the chopper leaves with you on time.

Your first destination will be the helipad near Kedarnath which can be either Phata, Sitapur, Sersi or Guptkashi. On reaching one of these many Helipads you will then be transferred to another shuttle that will fly you to the Kedarnath Helipad which is just about 500 metres away from the main entrance of the temple. This transfer is initiated by the government of India.

After landing near the temple, you will then be given some time to go and offer your darshan and pooja at the Kedarnath Temple via a VIP darshan pass which enables you to skip the crowd and offer your darshan in person. You will be given about 1.5 hours to complete your darshan and reach back to the helicopter at the helipad near the temple.

By around 10 am you will be flown off to Badrinath from Kedarnath helipad commencing the 2ndleg of the 1 day 2 Dham yatra of Badri Kedar by helicopter.

After a memorable journey of around half an hour to 45 minutes you will be made to land at the helipad near the temple of Badrinath.

The helipad is just around 1 km from the main entrance of the temple. A taxi service will be provided for you to transfer you from the helipad to the main temple entrance.

Just like in Kedarnath you will be given another 1.5 hours to complete the pooja and darshan rituals via a VIP darshan pass. After the completion of your pooja darshan at Badrinath, you will be made to head back to the place where you started at the Sahastradhara Helipad in Dehradun.

By 2 pm the journey will come to an end following your drop off at the Dehradun helipad.
