Religion to almost 300 million people the world over, the word Buddhism is derived from ‘budhi’, that is ‘to awaken’ or enlightenment. Lord Buddha’s teachings have spread out across the world from the Indian subcontinent , attracting lakhs of devotees to the places of his sermons.

While Bodhgaya, Kesariya, Rajgir and Kushinagar are famous for being the chosen spots for his sermons, Vaishali is known for being the place where he announced his ‘parinirvana’. Nautanwa is said to be the place where he relinquished his princely clothes for those of an ascetic hence taking on a new life. Shravasti is where Lord Buddha is said to have passed a major part of his monastic life.

The GoChoppers Buddhist circuit by helicopter touches on every important aspect of this pilgrimage beginning from Bodhgaya to Rajgir, Vaishali, Kesariya and halting for the night at Kushinagar. The next day, guests are taken to Nautanwa, Lumbini, Sravasti, Sarnath with a night halt at Varanasi. This specially designed itinerary by GoChoppers takes care of every detail of accommodation, air conditioned transportation where helicopters are not permitted, helicopter flights, a seasoned guide, all meals and service taxes.

Nothing could be more fulfilling than following the route of Lord Buddha’s teachings. No one understands this better than GoChoppers.
