Pilgrimages are a major part of any religion and belief system. When it comes to holy Yatras, India is criss crossed with many such pilgrimages with the most popular one being the iconic Char Dham Yatra. Established by Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya during the 8th century, Char Dham Yatra is believed to bring moksha for the pilgrims. Over time Char Dham Yatra has become more accessible for the pilgrims. The helicopter package for Badri Kedar Yatra is one of the best ways to experience the divine bliss of the Lord.
