Dear Sir,

Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,

The Yatra to the Holy Shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi Ji is open throughout the year., The original Holy Cave of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Ji is also open during the winters and Darshans through this cave is a unique mystical experience.

I am planning a trip to Vaishno Devi accompanied with my elderly parents. For my parents, I am planning to take the following route: Katra to Adhkuwari by Palki ; Adhkuwari to Bhavan by electric vehicle; Bhavan to Bhairo and back by Palki; Bhavan to Adhkuwari by electric vehicle ; Adhkuwari to Katra by Palki. 1. Can you please let me know if Palki is available for these routes, and expected cost. 2. Is any advance booking required for the electric vehicle? How frequently and easily are these vehicles available?

Dear Kiomoi Expet,

Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,

Keep two days for katra vaishno devi, two days for shiv khori and about 9 to 10 days for amarnath . So you will need atleast 15 days in hand.

Hi,
 
Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,
 
Well u dint mentioned frm whch place u askng abt duration...
lets start frm jammu ( first day)
for eg u reach jammu by train or by air in afternoon ..take overnight journey to vaishnodevi frm katra , coz its gonna be very hot during day time .... it takes 4-5 hours in normal to reach bhawan ....
summarising the whole trip .....u need
1 day to vaishnodevi
1 day to shivkhori
1 day to reach baltal or pahalgam
 
now ther's a choice in the two routes ...one frm pahalgam which takes 2 days to reach amarnath and then come back via baltal which take 6-7 hours to reach baltal base camp.
 
or  take baltal route for both ways ...which would take 6-7 hours by foot or 4 hours on horse.
baltal route saves time as one can do to and fro in same day .... but from pahalgam route to and fro needs 4 days .....best option wud be baltal for to nd fro ..... or if u wana stretch it a little go via pahalgam route nd come back via baltal route.........
 
so the duration of the trip may vary depending upon ur choice....
but in general days u need are, 
1 for vaishnodevi , 1 for shivkhori nd bck to katra , 1 to reach pahalgam or baltan from katra and then u can count thru the route u take and then one whole day to reach back to jammu.
so depends ......minimum u require is week's time coz u need rest after a sleepless night trip to v.devi.
 
Good Day !!!

You can hire a taxi from katra to and fro shiv khori. Many travel operators in katra offer package tour to kashmir including pahalgam and gulmarg. That wud be the most convenient option

It is possible as shivkhori is 80 km. from katra (3-4 hrs journey) and jammu is 55 km from katra ( 2 hrs journey)it would be better if you book a private cab for the same.
