HELICOPTER YATRA BLUES


The above quote by Oscar Wilde often pops up in our mind when people undertake a Chardham pilgrimage tour with a top-notch operator offering great services to undertake a smooth & hurdle free sailing but ta pall of disappointment hangs over their postures at the end of the journey due to unavoidable Forced Majeure reasons.

I, happen to be the part & parcel of teams operating Chardham Helicopter Tours for many years and have flown the niche class of pilgrims from different social circles from across India and abroad. During the course, I was witness to many unpleasant moments, where the pilgrims ended up with unpleasant postures despite operators’ best planning & executions, mainly because of the following precise reasons.

  • Body & luggage weight limitations in the helicopter while flying over high mountains.
  • Delayed reporting co-passengers at take-off point thus fetching uneasiness to fellow travelers resulting in delayed departures.
  • Unavailability of Palkis at Yamunotri Dham owing to peak demand in May & June.
  • Families getting separated in helicopters, temples, and even hotels while flying to the same destination owing to shuffling of passengers in order to maintain the right weight of the helicopter for safe flying.
  • Getting stranded at a single point due to suddenly imposed flying restrictions due to the Airforce flying in the valley, VIP movements, bad weather in particular.
  • Long & tiring queues at Kedarnath & Badrinath despite carrying VIP darshan slips.
  • Inability to carry back prasad & holy water in required quantity due to weight restrictions.
  • Curtailed darshan time before deity & in the temple due to heavy rush in peak season.
  • Facing discomforts while putting on PPE kits & being photographed in the same due to prevailing Covid -19 protocols.
  • Haste, cumbersome boarding & de-boarding helicopter in running rotors.
