    Good Morning India, I am Suresh from Dallas, and I will be coming to India with my parents after 15 years.
    I wish to take my parents for the Chardham Yatra.

    I will be arriving in Delhi from Dallas, and I wanted to know what arrangements can be made to start the yatra?

    Is there a service that provides the Chardham Yatra by helicopter from Delhi?

    Are there packages available for the Chardham yatra which provide all services including transport from Delhi, if a helicopter service is not available from Delhi?

    What would the duration of the yatra be?

    Please provide an idea of costs for the Chardham yatra.

    Arrangements are best made through a tour operator, who will organize everything for you, from transport, accommodation to food. Other than that just make sure you have all your essential things with you which you would have bought from Dallas.

    Unfortunately, there is no service which provides a helicopter ride from Delhi. You would need to travel by car from Delhi to Haridwar.

    Yes, there are packages for the Chota Chardham Yatra, some packages provide transport from Delhi, and some don't, so that is something you will have take note of when making your booking.

    Duration of the yatra can be anything from 4 days to 6 days depending on what package you choose and with whom.

    The cost of the Chardham yatra can be anything from Rs70,000 to Rs1,70,000.
