Ancient Indian tales have many references to air travel – starting with Garuda, the legendary bird and mount of Lord Vishnu. 'Riding the Garuda' implied a journey towards God. And if you were capable of effectively constructing your vehicle to reach the skies, then not only would you need to construct it well, but use it wisely. Air travel was a luxury reserved for the wise, not just for the rich. India's royalty always travelled in style. So shall you.

How you go is as big a deal as where you go. Not just first or business class. You get to choose from a fleet of luxurious airplanes, light jets, mid-size jets, heavy jets, helicopters, VIP aircraft with different seating capacities that fly across airports in India and neighbouring countries. The Vilasa team of aviation experts respects the importance of pure luxury in the air and offers the best options.

A birdseye view of the Tiger's Monastery

Paro Taktsang, also known as the Tiger's Nest, is a prominent Buddhist monastery, a sacred site in the magnificent Himalayas. A great way to see the monastery is by helicopter, hovering low over the beautiful landscape and legendary sights. The heli-scenic tour begins by flying low over the rice fields that cover the Paro valley in Bhutan, along the Pa Chu River, taking in old villages in the area. You get to see the 15th century Paro Rinpung Dzong and the Taa Dzong which is the National Museum now. Then on to the gravity-defying Tiger Nest Monastery – a spectacular experience from the sky.

Island Spotting by Seaplane

The brilliant blue of the sky and the myriad blues and greens of the sea from a sea plane will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. Flying low over the beautiful Maldivian archipelago, you see the lovely reefs, pristine white sand beaches, the islands with thick mangroves, the atolls, lagoons and sandbars. Get an overarching view of the whole place and spot the islands – Hulhumale Island, Male Island, among others, and even the uninhabited islands like the Kihavah Huravalhi Island that you can't visit. It's an aerial adventure you don't want to miss!
