Vaishno Devi, one of the most pious and revered Hindu shrines, invites millions of footfalls every year, not only from one religion but from across the globe. Dedicated to Goddess Vaishnavi, who was herself a form of mighty Goddess Durga, this place mesmerizes the pilgrims to no end with round the year ever changing spectacular vistas to offer with an obvious spiritual trance floating in air.
However, following are few points you need to keep in mind while planning a Vaishno Devi itinerary.
Autumn. The trifling winter along with a warm tingling feeling is a great time to visit but the shrine is visited all through the year, though the path becomes somewhat difficult during the winter due to snow fall.
Accommodation is available at Sanjhi Chat, which is also a helicopter base. You can take rest here or can carry onwards, since throughout the way, there are multiple number of food options available.
On reaching the Bhawan, show your Yatra slip at the Registration Office and a Batch No. would be provided on the slip. This number determines your place in the queue for the holy Darshan.
