B. Keep some cash and lots of pocket change: 
Once you’ve started the trek to the Vaishno Devi cave temple, you will find various small vendors selling handicrafts, religious ornaments, Prasad and offering horse rides but they accept money in terms of cash only. However, there are some eating outlets such as Café Coffee Day and Sagar Ratna where credit & debit cards are accepted. Carrying currency notes of lower value are more sensible.
