 Vaishno Devi Darshan Advice
Jai mata ki!! I tried reading forums but could not get specific answers to my questions, so please help me here. I have been to Vaishno Devi few times but this time I am going after a long gap. We are planning to use helicopter service. We are going in Nov 2013. 1) if we want to cover bhairav the same day, what do you suggest the helicopter timings should I book for both to and fro journey? We will be reaching Katra around 7.30 am after overnight train travel. I will have a young kid and my parents with me, so we will not be very fast in walking. 1a) how much , on average, it takes to go from bhavan to Bhairav mandir, do the darshan and come to Sanjhichat. Is the whole distance 2.5 km or just bhavan to bhairav is 2.5 km? 2) Can we get pitthu to carry luggage at sanjhichat where helicopter arrives? 3) It seems helicopter users do not have long wait time. Can you please tell me the whole process? 4) what is the best way to get a taxi from Jammu station to Katra? Thanks in advance.
 Hotel Guidance for 1N stay in Katra
Hello everyone, I have been visiting Vaishnodevi every year since 2006. But never got into this situation. Today, I was trying to book room for 4 people (myself, wife, parents) at bhawan but due to huge crowd in navratri, no room was available. Now, I am left with the only option i.e. to book a room at katra. But going through reviews from different sites, I am not able to decide which hotel is best. either i book room in advance or i book once i reach katra as I will have many options to choose from. My only concern is that it is a weekend during navratri season, so the number of devotees will be very huge. second, we need room to get freshen up and night stay. But how to decide and what to do is getting me into a dilemma. suggestions will be appreciated. Jai Mata di.
 Helicopter service in Katra
Hi, We will be staying at Katra for 5 days. I wanted some details with regards to the helicopter ride to Maa Vaishnodevi. How much does this cost? What is the frequency? How many poeple can be accommodated per trip because we are a group of 14 people? Also we'd like to know what are the sightseeing attractions in and around Katra. Regards, Kirit
