Heli-Tourism In Kashi: Soon Experience Ganga Darshan, Temple Visits & Chandauli Eco-Tourism From The Sky
Varanasi: The historic city of Kashi, known for its spiritual significance and cultural richness, is set to offer tourists a new and exhilarating perspective – from the sky. The Yogi government is gearing up to introduce Heli-tourism in Kashi, an initiative that promises not only a breathtaking aerial view of the Ganga and Varanasi but also an opportunity to indulge in eco-tourism in the neighboring district of Chandauli.
The move comes in the wake of improved connectivity and the completion of the Shri Kashi Vishwanath Dham Corridor, leading to a surge in the number of tourists flocking to Varanasi. As one of the oldest living cities in the world, Varanasi attracts visitors seeking spiritual solace, historical exploration, and the vibrant energy that emanates from its temples and ghats.
The tourism industry plays a pivotal role in Kashi's economy, and with the addition of Heli-tourism, the city is poised to elevate the overall tourist experience. Modern cruises have already been providing a unique perspective of the Ganga, showcasing its beauty, the iconic crescent-shaped ghats, and centuries-old architectural marvels. Now, with Heli-tourism on the horizon, tourists can anticipate a new dimension to their exploration of Varanasi.
Rajendra Kumar Rawat, Deputy Director of the Tourism Department, shared insights into the upcoming venture. Helicopters are set to operate for visits to the revered Kashi temple and the enchanting Ganga Darshan. However, the excitement doesn't stop there. Tourists will also have the chance to partake in eco-tourism activities in Chandauli, a district that holds its own allure near Varanasi.
The anticipated helicopter ride is slated to last approximately 20 to 25 minutes, offering a compact yet immersive experience. Each helicopter can accommodate six passengers, including the pilot, ensuring an intimate and memorable journey for those fortunate enough to partake in this aerial adventure.
As the skies above Kashi open up to tourists, the Heli-tourism initiative is poised to become a captivating addition to the diverse array of experiences the city has to offer. The prospect of soaring above the sacred Ganga and exploring the landscapes from a bird's-eye view is sure to enthrall both domestic and international visitors, further solidifying Kashi's standing as a multifaceted destination steeped in spirituality, history, and now, the thrill of Heli-tourism.
