Chinyalisaur Airstrip also known as Maa Ganga Airstrip, is located in Chinyalisaur of Uttarkashi district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.

The Airstrip is situated 85 Kilometers from New Tehri at the banks of River Bhagirathi. The airstrip was initially constructed to cater to the needs of tourist and pilgrim traffic to the region, but lay unused as air charter companies did not start operations to the area. The Indian Air Force also uses the airstrip as an Advanced Landing Ground (ALG).[2]
