You can also come over to Vaishno Devi during the monsoon season but you need to be very careful about the weather changes. This is one such time of the year when you can enjoy a wide range of adventures. 

How to reach Katra for the Vaishno Devi tour?

By Flight: The nearest airport to Katra for Vaishno Devi tour is Jammu Airport. You can take a taxi to cover the rest of the distance by road. You will also get direct buses on this route at regular intervals. If you wish, you can also opt for helicopter services at Sanjhi Chhat. 

By Road: You can easily reach Katra by bus services from the nearby cities like Jammu, Amritsar, and New Delhi. Apart from buses, you can also opt for taxi services or take self drive car rentals to drive down the beautiful roads. 

By Train: The nearest railway station for Vaishno Devi yatra is at Katra. You will get regular trains to this place from every major Indian city. You can reach Katra from your location and then spend some time at the luxurious accommodation close to the station and then cover the rest of the distance to the holy cave.

How long is the walk to Vaishno Devi?

Once you are in the base camp of Katra, you will have to climb a distance of about 12 km. This is a well paved road which would take about 4 - 8 hours to complete the journey. You can also take a helicopter ride to Sanjichhat and then continue walking for about 2.5 km. 

Which all places will we get to visit in this Vaishno devi package?

  • Vaishno Devi Temple: Vaishno Devi Temple is one of the sacred places that pilgrims love to visit every single year. The primary deity is Vaishno Devi, a manifestation of Goddess Durga. The locals refer to the deity as Mata Rani. As per legends, during the holy puja and aarti, Goddess Durga arrives at the cave and blesses the pilgrims.
  • Katra: Located on the foothills of Trikuta Mountain Range, it is a base camp for the epic Vaishno Devi package. You can come over to this place from your hometown and then continue walking till you reach the holy cave. This place is also home to some of the beautiful attractions like Chenab River and Banganga. You can also try out mountain climbing and a number of excursion tours with your family. 
  • Ardhkuwari: Ardhkuwari is yet another sacred place to visit in the Vaishno Devi Package. As per the legends, the Goddess Durga meditated in the caves of Ardhkuwari for about 9 months before making her abode in Vaishno Devi Bhawan. You can come over to this place, offer prayers at the holy cave and seek blessings from the almighty.

Is it convenient for an aged person to come for the darshan ?

It is absolutely convenient for the devotees of all age groups right from small children to elderly people as adequate facilities like catering, porters, accommodation etc. are available at Katra, Bhawan and enroute. For the infirm people the Palkies can be engaged.

How much time does it take to visit Vaishno Devi from Katra?

The distance between Katra and Vaisho Devi is about 10 km. It takes about 5 - 8 hours to climb from Katra to Vaisho Devi and about 3 - 6 hours to descend down from the holy cave.

What are the important things to remember while going for Vaishno Devi Darshan?

  • You should make sure that you have obtained the Vaishno Devi package slip from the registration counter. If you forget to get that, then you will not be allowed to cross beyond the Ban Ganga Check post. 
  • If you think you will not be able to make it to the cave walking down the road, then you can ask for a helicopter ride or palanquin ride at the registration counter. 
  • You will be provided with food, water, and a blanket free of cost, so it is suggested to leave unnecessary items at the base camp.
  • You should wait for the announcement of the group number of yours for the darshan. It is at all times suggested to be attentive or else you will miss the announcement. 
  •  You should completely clean yourself as well as your clothes before the Darshan.
