Shiv Khori is situated in between the hillocks about 140 km north of Jammu, 120 km from Udhampur and 80 km from Katra. Buses and light vehicles go up to Ransoo, the base camp of pilgrimage.

People have to traverse about 3 km on foot on a track recently constructed by the Shiv Khori Shrine Board, Ransoo duly headed by the Divisional Commissioner Jammu as Chairman and District Development Commissioner, Reasi as vice chairman. The walk from Ransoo to Shri Shiv Khori is on a steep mountainous track. Ponies are also available for rent to facilitate pilgrims on the mountainous track. You can be carried up to Shiv Khori by palki as well. Generally, the walking along the entire track takes about 2-3 hours to visit the Holy Cave and come back.

Shiv Khori is about 3 hours drive from Katra (about 4- 4.5 hours if you take the bus instead of a taxi car). The trek there is about 2 hours, it takes another 1-2 hours (depending upon rush) to complete the darshans there.

Yes, ponies are available there too. Shiv Khori is about 3-3.5 hoursa drive from Katra (90 kms) if you are taking a taxi car.

It takes about 2 hours on foot to reach the cave from its base camp and another 1-2 hours (depending upon the rush) to complete the darshans. From base to caves it takes about 1.5 hours on foot and about 30 minutes on horses/ponies. From base to caves, there is cemented road. At base, all facilities are available, including food etc.it will memorable visit for you. One can go from Jammu via Akhnoor.
