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.

I am travelling to Vaishno Devi temple from Delhi to Jammu by road. I will reach Katra by morning 8.The NH-1 is excellent from Delhi to Ludhiana and from Ambala to Jalandhar. Depends on what time you leave Delhi there may be heavy truck traffic en-route. But the road is good from Jalandhar to Pathankot is a nightmare full of potholes, and we decided to avoid that route in September. We took the route from Jalandhar to Amritsar to Pathankot, which is a bit longer but we stopped at the Golden temple. Pathankot to Jammu is a 100 kilometre stretch where four lanes are in progress almost half the way. Jammu Katra is fine except for heavy traffic. Amazing experience by car

I travelled to Vaishno Devi via bus with my friends, family and relatives. It was a joyful experience. The journey started from New Delhi at 10:00am.The weather in Delhi was hot but as soon as our bus reached near mountain hills, the weather started to change. Weather was much better than Delhi. Finally we reached the holy shrine Vaishno Devi.
