When does Chardham Yatra Starts & End?

Every Year Chardham Yatra begins from the month of April end or May onwards and continues until October/November as the doors of all four temples (Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yumunotri & Gangotri) remain open till the day of “The Diwali” which is celebrated every year during the month of October/November. However, the chartered helicopter does not operate during monsoon (June end – September end) since flying under these conditions becomes non-viable.


Is an oxygen problem in Kedarnath?

The oxygen depletion is measured in atmospheric pressure or percent of less oxygen. At Kedarnath, the atmospheric presence of oxygen is only 40 percent of the required level. This means that the lungs must breathe faster and the heart must pump more to retain the oxygen level in the body.


Which Dham is most difficult?

Yamunotri is the first of the four Dhams and the toughest. Although it is located at a lower elevation than the other Dhams, the narrow and crowded pathway makes reaching the temple challenging and tough. Devotees can be carried by Palkies/ Ponies and Pitthu from the hotel to the temple.


Is a helicopter ride to Chardham safe?

Devotees can either travel to Chardham by road or via helicopter. However, there is no direct road to the temple and you will have to walk a bit at a few shrines. But, using the helicopter service can definitely cut the travel time and fetch easiness at the same time. The safest way to navigate the rough terrain is by helicopter which is flown by retired pilots from Indian Defence forces.


What are the extra weight charges for the Chardham helicopter?

There are no set guidelines issued by the Government to Chardham Helicopter operators ex-Dehradun in respect of extra weight charges and these charges at times vary from Rs.1,000/- to 3,000/- per extra kg beyond 75 Kg of the prescribed average weight. The charges can be negotiated since these are not fixed and are charged to cater to the extra weight charged by Palki’s vendors at Yamunotri and the helicopter shuttle operators at the Kedarnath base.


Helicopter charges for Children/ infants?

There is no charge for tickets for children below 2 years of age and can travel free by helicopter with their parents. However, if a child has completed his 2 years on the day of Yatra then you need to pay the full ticket amount at par with an adult.

What assistance a physically handicapped person can receive when traveling by helicopter?

  • Yamunotri – Palkis can be brought to the helipad and the pilgrim can be carried by same to the temple and vice versa.
