How I went:

You will have to reach Jammu by train or flight or bus. I took a budget room at Hotel Diamond near bus stand. Std code 0191 Ph 2577792,2577065. Rent was Rs.250. The station also had good retiring rooms. I was asked to wait for 2 hrs. I had to start immediately to Katra. So I took the hotel room.

After having a quick bath, took an auto to drop me at busstand for taking a bus to katra. The bus takes 2 hrs to reach katra and costs Rs.30 per seat.

You can also stay at katra Many many stay places are there. Am giving a Budget hotel and a Rs1500 budget hotel name.

Budget hotel: Galexy guest house 01991-232491 ,232950

Slightly high range hotel Hotel Malti Palace 01991 – 233500, 233501 fax 232733

You can walk up the 13 km road from katra to Vaishno devi temple from a place called Baan ganga. Rs 25 by Auto from bus stand. Fom there if u cant go up by walk you can take a palanquin carried by 4 persons..looked very comfortable sofa to me…or take a horse. I had opted for helicopter for want of time. I was also told you can go upto ardh quary(a place at half way mark on climb) in pony and from there three wheeler is available for drop at temple.

I think Himalayan and air deccan operate the helicopter service.Generally sky is clear in hills till 11 am.Airdeccan which I had opted had its service starting only from 11 am till 2 m. So I wld recommend opting for himalyan. Unfortunately, vaisho devi did not call me as due to bad whether the helicopter could not go. So never go there assuming u can finish in one da. Have 2 days or preferably 3 days for the trip as if you opt for any other mode, you will travel 26 km or more in a day which on a hill is very tiresome. The helicopter service from air deccan is rs 1600 one way and issues a priority vip pass for quick dharshan which can be collected by showing the boarding pass at kalika bhavan in room 8 at temple. The auto fare to helipad from bus stand is Rs.60.
