We were browsing the pictures of this trip and suddenly realised that we had not posted the lovely pictures we had taken on our way back fromGangaria toGobindGhat.
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. Please click on the pictures to see them in enlarged size.

|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.|

|Safely landed…… By the way, the helipad has been washed away in recent floods.|
