Delhi to Jammu by overnight Train best would be Sampark Kranti Express Departure Delhi at 8.30pm and Jammu Arrival at 6am.

Jammu to Katra 50kms, approx 90 minutes journey.

Katra is a small town and more developed due to this tourist place and you get get accommodation from Rs. 350 and upwards.

Katra to Vaishnodevi only by trekking or using Pony/Horses approx 4-6hrs or by Helicopter Rs. 2000 one way.

Food prices are average not expensive.

The best would be to travel by the Railway package recently introduced by Indian Railways starts every Friday and returns back on Monday morning and travel includes in AC 3 Tier.

Check for details at

irctc.co.in/vaishnodevi/Vaishno%20Devi%20Bro…

You can book temple accommodation rooms at Katra or Vaishnodevi(its called as Bhawan) at http://maavaishnodevi.org/new1/index.html

All other misl details are also avaibale at the above site.

As long there is no Monsoon then everything should be ok, imagine if you are trekking for 4-5 hrs and its raining.

Further make sure you have one woolen clothing as it would be extreme cold at Bhawan(Vaishnodevi) even when i visited in May the situation was the same.
