This is one of the most suited train. After getting down from Jammy we hired a taxi for Katra. The journey from New Delhi to Jammu and from Jammu to Katra was comfortable. There was no problem enroute. The road conditions from Jammu to Katra have been improved like any thing. These are wide and smooth.

My experience was a surreal one. The train experience in Jan Shatabdi was good and I had a lot of fun during the 14 km "chadai". It was really cold but I had a great time with friends. It is highly recommended to go there during winter. The scenery is beautiful plus you get a divine view of the mountains. A must visit place.

It was very good to travel by train to Vaishno Devi. I got a hotel nearby Katra due to my bookings which was already made through internet. I enjoyed a lot with my friends and more interestingly, I got to see the Ardhkunwari Mata during my trekking to the temple.

I have been to Vaishno Devi three days ago. It is the best experience of my life. The weather was awesome there and I first took a taxi from Jammu for Katra and I stayed there for three hours. I mean it as it is the best experience of my life.

The train experience was worst. It got delayed by four hours and food, bedding was pathetic. Never travel by this train. The train experience was worst.
