The town of Katra is located at a distance of 12 km from this temple. The visitors have to trek all the way to this temple from Katra. The yatris who find difficulty in walking all the way from Katra can hire a pony or a palki to reach Vaishno Devi. Porters who are locally known as Pithus can be hired to carry luggage.

Some of the staunch devotees believe in traveling 2 km uphill from Vaishno Devi for Baihron Mandir darshan. They consider trekking upto only 12 km remains incomplete if this temple is not visited. While traveling to Vaishno Devi, tourists can also visit places like Banganga, Charan Paduka and Adhkuwari.
