Dear forum members,

Jai mata di!

I am planning to visit the Maa Vaishno Devi shrine with my family for darshan in April first week. We have 4 senior citizens and a kid in our group. Request you to please support me with some information that will help me in planning the trip and getting prepared.

We are planning to take the 3 pm helicopter. First go to the Gauri bhawan as we will be traveling directly from Delhi via Jammu. After some time, visit the Main mandir bhawan for darshan. Return to the Gauri Bhawan for night stay. Next day morning, visit the baba bhairo mandir and take the return helicopter.

My queries are:
  1. Which bhawan is the nearest to the main mandir bhawan and can be booked in advance for night stay (online or offline)?
  2. Is the Gauri bhawan situated on the way from Sanjichat helipad to the main Mandir bhawan or baba Bhairo mandir or none of them?
  3. How far is the Gauri Bhawan from Sanjichat helipad?
  4. How much approx. time is needed to reach the Main mandir bhawan from Gauri bhawan?
  5. How much approx. time is needed to reach the Sanjichat helipad from Baba Bhairo mandir?
  6. How far is the baba bhairo mandir from Gauri Bhawan? How much approx. time is needed to reach the Baba Bhairo mandir from Gauri Bhawan?
  7. How much luggage/bag is allowed in helicopter?

Thanks and regards, Vikash

Accommodation could be booked online 60 days prior to the planned stay.

There are Vaishnavi Bhawan & Gouri Bhawan where you may book double, four bedded rooms or six bedded Hut bedded rooms. Manokamana Bhawan has dormitory accommodation which is booked on per bed basis.

Gouri Bhawan is nearer on the route from Saanjhi Chhat but little bit farther from Bhawan.

Yes on the way.

Helipad at Katra is approx. 2 Km. from Bus Stand Katra at Udhampur Road. Vaishnodevi Bhawan is approx. 2.5 Km. from Helipad at Sanjichhat.

You should keep around 15 to 20 minutes

Exact statistics can't be provided as every person has different pace of walking in the mountains.

How far is the baba bhairo mandir from Gauri Bhawan?
It is one and half kms but steep climb

How much luggage/bag is allowed in helicopter?
As minimum as possible
