The tourism in Himachal Pradesh gets even more interesting day after day. You must have seen your Facebook timeline crowded with a lot of photos with friends visiting the hilly state that awes travellers.
Now there is yet another reason to visit Himachal. From June 4, you can take a helicopter ride from Chandigarh to Shimla! How amazing is that?
Imagine looking at the picturesque landscape from up above and flying as you see the beautiful Himalayan peaks staring right back at you – almost as if they are smiling.
The 20-seat chopper ride will operate only two days of the week as of now – Mondays and Fridays. It will depart from Chandigarh for Shimla at 8:00 and reach at 8:20 – and it will depart from Shimla for Chandigarh at 9:00 and reach at 9:20 in the morning. The frequency of these rides might increase depending upon the response, according to Chandigarh airport spokesperson Deepesh Joshi.
These rides that are priced at ₹2,999 per person might be expensive but we are sure that it will be worth it. Give your beau a surprise on your next visit to Himachal? It might all be worth the price.
Here are some aerial view pictures of Himachal that will awe you:
If you are travelling solo then this is the best option to pick as a taxi might cost you anywhere between 2.5-3.5k. The distance between Chandigarh and Shimla is approximately 120 km – it will take you some 3 hours 30mins by road but only 20mins by a chopper. Think about it!
