Other Information
Passengers can only carry one hand baggage on helicopter flight.
Using Kedarnath helicopter service, the advantage is you can reach Badrinath by night after darshan of Kedarnath.

Pawan Hans uses a 5-seater helicopter for the tour. Helicopter ride is only for 20 minutes one way.
Darshan needs to be completed in 1.5 hours and hence you need to buy special darshan tickets. If you wish to stay overnight take the last flight to Kedarnath and return by first flight next day (6:55 AM)
