Amarnath Yatra by Helicopter

Perched at a height of more than 3800m above sea level and located south of Zozila, Sri Amarnath is a holy shrine for hindus in the Himalayas. Considered to be one of the most difficult pilgrimages, legends say that this is the cave where Lord Shiva is said to have divulged the secrets of immortality (amar). Famed for the manifestation of an ice lingam, it is said that this natural formation begins with the month of Ashada, between July and August and reaches its peak by the month of Shravan which is the period between August and September.

This is the period when Amarnath Cave opens up for darshan for lakhs of pilgrims. The Go Choppers Amarnath Yatra by helicopter 3N 4D itinerary alleviates the travails of the arduous journey to a large extent. A smooth transfer from Srinagar airport to Sonamarg hotel and a helicopter flight to Panjtarni, the permitted dropping point about 6 kms from the holy cave, sets aside the difficult trek to the shrine. Ponies and palkies are available to complete the journey to the cave and return to Panjtarni for a ride back to Neelgrath helipad.
