I’m 100% sure that the companies are flouting rules by carrying more than allowed passengers in the heli cabin. The return ride was adventurous and scary, the pilot decided to take a deep dive during climb down.

It was simply memorable from the very start till we returned. The online booking is tough if you are than 1-2 passengers though you could get the same done easily on the spot if it's non peak time. Else it's difficult both online as well as at the counter. The boarding and screening was smooth and quick as against general public opinion. The staff is very helpful and share information as much needed for a uneventful yet memorable ride. The ride is not costly unless you are fleeced by a broker but the increased price is also ok for a chopper/helicopter ride. Thanks to the operator and the pilots and everybody involved. Highly recommended for all visiting Mata Vaishno Devi. Jai Mata Di!

I am a big fan of waking to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine so reluctantly booked this service on insistence of my mother. But I am so glad that I did it. Very professionally run, leaves on exact time and professional staff who know what they are doing. We loved it so much that we can go once more for just the fun of it. While going to base station, take an auto which will cost you $210 from Katra town While going to Sanjhichat from Bhavan, there is only 300 meters of steep climb in beginning and 300 meter climb in the end. Rest is all straight walk.

Waiting and Boarding area should have stalls selling snacks. Frequency of the choppers should be more and also online reservation should be made for all the passengers like international tickets for flights.

We simply had an awesome experience with the helicopter service provided by Global Vectra. Only improvement I would recommend - the staffs at the check in counter should be more polite and curtious.
