The higher reaches of the Himalayas are home to some of the most revered pilgrimage spots. Sri Hemkund Sahib in Uttarakhand has a rich legacy for the followers of Hinduism and Sikh religion. Ensconced by seven snow clad peaks, Sri Hemkund Sahib is believed to have been the spot for meditation by Lakshmana and also by Guru Gobind Singh in his previous birth. The tranquil surroundings and the icy lake of Lokpal, enhance the spiritual quest of pilgrims.
Considering the difficult climb, GoChoppers has designed a same day Hemkund Sahib Yatra by Helicopter itinerary for pilgrims making the journey accessible and enjoyable. Airlifting the guests from Sahstradhara in helicopters, GoChoppers reduces the anxieties and difficulties of mountainous road journey, leaving them in better frame of mind. The guests are taken up to Ghangaria, the last point till which helicopters have permission to fly. From here, the pilgrims have the options of palki or ponies to negotiate the next 6 kms of ascent, going up approximately 1100 meters to Sri Hemkund Sahib. Once the guests return to Ghangaria, they are once again heli- lifted back to Sahstradhara.

A pilgrimage in the Himalayas with GoChoppers is an enriching experience, precisely because it subtracts the anxieties and allows complete immersion in spirituality.
