Vaishno Devi Yatra by Helicopter Itinerary

Day 1 Jammu - Sanji Chatti - Vaishno Devi

Jammu Airport serves as both the starting and concluding point for the yatra. Upon your arrival at the airport early in the morning, our tour agent will warmly welcome you. Following the necessary security procedures, you will be transported to your accommodation at Chesterfield. Subsequently, passengers will be transferred to the helicopter that will carry them to the Sanji Chatt Helipad, designated specifically for the Vaishno Devi Yatra.

Upon arrival at Sanjichat, a guide will lead you to Bhawan on foot, a journey that takes approximately half an hour and covers a distance of 2.5 km from the helipad. For those who prefer not to walk, there are options such as Palki/Doli and the newly introduced ropeway services to cover the distance.

After the Darshan is completed, our guides will escort each passenger back to the Sanji Chatt Helipad, from where they will board the helicopter for the return journey to Jammu Airport. Upon reaching Jammu Airport, passengers will be directed to a lounge, marking the conclusion of the one-day Vaishno Devi Yatra by Helicopter.
