Valley of Flowers - View from the sky!

We were browsing the pictures of this trip and suddenly realised that i had not posted the lovely pictures we had taken on our way back from Gangaria to Gobind Ghat.

We flew back from Gangaria in a chopper. The flight exactly took seven minutes to cover! We done the same distance by foot while going and it had taken us 12 hours.

The views from the chopper were awesome. The flight is through Alaknanda valley covered by mist with myriad of waterfalls.

It was a cloudy morning with constant drizzle. In fact the flight was delayed by almost two hours and were not sure whether we would be able to take off. Finally we did around 10 In the morning.

Take a look at these pictures.

The bird has arrived, finally!
Gangaria helipad must one of the most picturesque in the world. It is in a bowl surrounded by cloud kissed mountains. When mist clears, you can see some lovely waterfalls.
We now take off. The tented accommodation of one of the travel agencies. The flight though only for seven minutes is memorable for valley views. I have had similar experience while flying in the Siang valley of Arunachal Pradesh.






The first glimpse of Gobind Ghat
We come closer....
The milky waters of Alakananda
Safely landed...... By the way, the helipad has been washed away in recent floods.
If one does not want to trek back, taking a chopper is a good option. You can book ticket in Gangaria. It will give a different experience while saving time. But the weather being fickle, one need to keep a buffer day if planning to come by chopper.
