Tourists can now enjoy the aerial view of the Pink City.

From Friday, the service for seeing various tourist spots here by helicopter --Aravali forests and Amer Fort, Nahargarh, Jaigarh, Jalmahal, Hawa Mahal -- are available.

The cost for this joy ride is Rs 5000-7000.

This facility will also be available in other cities of the state, including Jodhpur and Udaipur. Preparations are also on to start a helicopter service for visiting religious places of Rajasthan. Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) is planning for this.

RTDC chairman Dharmendra Rathore said that after Jaipur, helicopter joyrides will be started in Udaipur as well. Also, a special circle is being prepared for the devotees coming to visit the temple. Under this, devotees will be able to go to Khatushyam ji, Salasar Hanuman temple and Pushkar by helicopter.

After this, helicopter joyrides will be started at other tourist places, including Ranthambore and Ghana Bird Sanctuary (Bharatpur). The idea is also going on to start cruise tourism in Chambal, said Rathore.
