Sanjichhat, at a distance of 3.25 Kms from Adkuwari is a picturesque spot with enchanting views of the valley and snow covered peaks of the Himalayan ranges on a clear day. Sanjichhat is the highest point on the old track and is also the end of the uphill climb. From here a person has to walk downhill in order to reach Bhawan.

It is literally a treat to be at Sanjichhat because of its scenic beauty. This is compounded by the fact that from Sanjichhat one has only to move downhill to reach Bhawan. Sanjichhat is the last major rezendvous before reaching Bhawan. The pilgrims are overcome with a sense of achievement after the steep climb and would like to break their Yatra here for a short rest or some food and drink. The Shrine Board has kept these requirements of the yatries in mind while providing for various facilities at Sanjichhat.
Accommodation in the form of rooms and dormitories is available here. Although this accommodation is booked from the Enquiry and Reservation Counter in Katra and is usually booked well in advance, yet spot booking is possible in case accommodation is available. As a thumb rule, however it is advisable to obtain confirmed booking by sending a demand draft in the name of Chief Executive Officer Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, Katra payable at Katra. On line booking is also possible through the website: www.maavaishnodevi.org. In addition to rented rooms, free rest rooms and halls are also available on a first come basis.

In addition to accommodation facilities, a Bhojanalya managed by the Shrine Board is also available at Sanjichhat. Here hygienic food is available on no profit no loss basis. There are other facilities too. A 24 bedded hospital with basic facilities, a Souvenir shop, a blanket store are some of them. There are many private shop selling tea, coffee, cold drinks, eatables etc. STD PCOs are also available. Announcements for lost and found and a wireless station have also been provided for the welfare of the yatries.
Sanjichhat is also important because of another reason. The helipad is available here and yatries reaching by helicopter land at Sanjichhat. Similarly for the return helicopter journey, yatries have to reach the helipad at Sanjichhat in order to board the helicopter.
