Hilsa by Helicopter

1st October 2022

The exchanges between the pilot and the control center added to the exciting experience. From my seat, I had an incredible view of the Himalayan ridges and the rivers flowing in the narrow valleys. I saw an entirely different landscape and a diverse Himalayan terrain. The ecosystem of the lower ranges varied from pine trees on the heights and lush forests in the valleys. Some peaks appeared to pierce the sky and were surrounded by deep valleys and flowing rivers.

I have been on many helicopter rides abroad but the one Helicopter ride that is unforgettable was the one I took to Hilsa during my Kailash Yatra. The way the pilot deftly maneuvered the Copter within the narrow valleys between ridges was like real lie scene from Mission Impossible.
