Vaishno Devi, Katra
(4.7/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
A holy shrine bringing millions of Hindus and Sikhs together each year, Vaishno Devi sits at a height of 1,585 m (5,200 ft). As you enter the temple cave, notice that no statues and idols decorate the interior, contrary to the majority of Indian religious sites. Instead, the pilgrimage itself counts as the divine reward to both the devotees and eager tourists. Many elderly visitors choose to discover this site by a helicopter tour, offered by several area operators. Work out when and for how long to visit Vaishno Devi and other Katra attractions using our handy Katra trip generator.

  • It's the most holy place and always feels amazing whenever I visit. The facilities like food and shelter are awesome here though it's a hill station. Shrine board is managing very efficiently and keeps improving the facilities and infrastructure according to the demands of pilgrims. Every visit to here becomes nothing less than awesome.
  • Great place!!! We tried to do helicopter booking a week before our visit but we couldn't get tickets. So, we had to climb all the way. It wasn't that bad. They have all the facilities on the way. Amazing experience..
