Helicopter service from Vaishno Devi to Shiv Khori will start soon to promote the pilgrim tourism in the region.



In a press communiqué, the deputy commissioner, Reasi, Sushma Chauhan has said that in the upcoming board meet, a detailed discussion on this issue will be held.



Chauhan said that the construction of helipad and allied infrastructure along with approach road is almost complete and the helicopter service is likely to start soon.



As the Shiv Khori cave shrine attracted 1,65,618 lakh pilgrims this year till April 30, the district administration and the Shri Shiv Khori Shrine Board (SSKSB) are geared up to provide every possible facility to devotees to divert pilgrims of Vaishno Devi towards Shiv Khori, said Chauhan.
