Beautiful place

This is base camp for whoever is opting helicopter service and is reached by helicopter. From sanchghat to mataji temple we have to walk or take horse. From here around 2 kms to main temple. This will operate from 8 am to 5 pm only.

Has good facilities around

It is almost mid point to Ardhkuwari and Bharon Nath temple. Good facilities to stay, mealing and short break. Good toilet facilities are available. We had short break during returning from Bhairo Nath temple at night. Used toilet facilities, had tea and looked scene at night, we can stay for night if feeling tired.

A well-maintained helipad

Food available. Be aware of monkeys. Horses are a nuisance near the helipad which are very unsafe for pedestrians going to shrine. Good waiting area. Weather could be very unpredictable.

Very good service provided but too long to wait

Helicopter was the option to choose because of my elderly parents are unable to walk but waiting period is horrible, needs to report one hour before quite boring. But the pilot was lady she drove very nicely, we enjoyed the helicopter ride.

Don't expect clean restrooms

During your trek to Vaishno mandir at several places you will find several points where you can take rest and soak in the natural beauty. Sajhichat comes after the Ardhkuwari which is midway of the trek. It is an open space where you can take rest for a while. There are several restrooms on the way which you can use in pay per use manner. Though you pay that doesn't imply that you will get clean restrooms.
