Best Time to do Chardham Yatra by Helicopter :
Travelling to Chardham is not an easy job. The rough roads and rocky terrain can make you trek for a long time to test your strength. As the climate of the Himalayan is also not very certain so before doing anything make sure to check the climate of the place.
Summers are the best time to do your Chardham journey between May, June and the start of June. The temperature during summer stays around 13 degrees and you can manage to have light woolens in this climate. You can also visit in October before the winter season.
Winters are usually 5 degrees and it’s quite difficult to travel around November to January. I will recommend you not travel in winter as the climate is extremely chilly and makes these place snow-clad dessert.
