Dear Members,

I along with my family members (15++) are planning to visit Vaisho Devi temple near Jammu. Would like to have the guidance from the members who have visited the place in the last few months. Especially, I would like to know the procedure and advance booking facility for Heli Copter and about the Hotels in Katra.

Regards

Venkat
