about Vaishnoo Devi

Vaishno Devi Holiday package is a religious and pious trip most Indians take, for cleansing and also for paying gratitude to the Goddess, for her blessings. This Vaishno Devi tour package is one such trip that is a repeat trip for most, usually once a year or with a festivity in family. The nearest landing airport is Jammu, well-connected from all over India and also regular trains ply between Katra (the base camp station for walking upto the The Vaishno Devi Shrine). Just from last year (2016) an amazing rail network has started right upto the foot of the shrine (Katra). The road network is also spic-span-new and well laid, with a majority of distance from Jammu Railway Station or Jammu airport is just about an hour.

Low-cost to swanky hotels are available in Katra. One needs to register for walking upto the Shrine, free of cost, and now this facility is available online as well. The total foot distance to the Shrine is 12.5 kilometers one way, and takes about 6 hours of easy walking. Travellers can book return helicopters to and from the shrine (usually about INR 1200-1600 per person return). The helicopter ride is quite enjoyable and takes about 5 minutes to cover the distance. From the helicopter landing point, one needs to walk for 15-minutes to get closer to the queue point for entering the Shrine. Ponies, Mules and helps are available to take the journey along with you for a prescribed fee, as per guidelines of the Shree Mata Vaishno Devi Trust, but usually they ask for a little more as tip and food charges, which a pilgrim never fails to pay.

The Vaishno Devi Darshan tour package for many is a dream come true, one can find people of all age-groups, even those who cannot walk properly, those who cannot see, those who cannot hear and others in physically challenged capacities, but it is said, that once the Goddess sends an invitation to meet, it is only she who makes the way a successful trip. The energy all around the way of 12.5 kms each side is full of life, people sing-dance-eat-pray and the distance never makes them feel tired or giving up. A variety of food is available all along the way, fried-baked-oily-smoky-coffee-soft beverages and more, but without any onion and garlic and pure vegetarian.

Post the Vaishno Devi Darshan tour package finishes, travelers try and take a post yatra tour of adjoining places like the Patnitop and the Shiva temple. Honeymooners post marriage first visit the Shrine Vaishno Devi Darshan to take blessings and thereafter continue with their trip forward, but the first stop is the Vaishno Devi.

As one comes back for their departure through Jammu, one can visit the Raghunath Bazaar Temple near Jammu Bus Stand, the Raghunath Bazaar famous for dry fruits and nuts and for good quality ‘Saffron’. Jammu is also known for cereals, like Rajmah and also for Rice. Travellers can be seen carrying the huge packets of the same back home. One can have a good lunch or dinner at the revolving restaurant in Jammu (suggested please check website before hand).
