i have visited shri vaishno devi temple about 12 times over a period of 15 years .mataji has been very kind to me and my family . For the 1st time i took my wife and my 10 yr old son to the temple . i had been trying to book the helicopter (from the base to the top around 10 kms plus additional walking fro around 2 kms) since over 2 months . The site is either out of order or it says no availability. Once i reached KATRA , i found out that the whole exercise of booking on the Net is just a farce , the locals told me that the people at the shrine board have formed a nexus with private tour operators and charge as musch as 5000Inr for the journey(official charge is INR 1200) The horse breeders have made a cartel and they charge 3-4 times the official amount .The entire complex is in very bad shape thanks to the corruption which is a typical feature of indian life and even GOD is a victim here . I hope mataji punishes those who are involved in the scam .
