Nestled in the foothills of Trikuta Mountains, Katra in Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most spiritual tourist destinations of India. Better known as Maa Vaishno Devi Dham, Katra is the starting point for the 12 odd Kms. treks to the temple.
Starting from Katra, the trek along the wide expanse of the lush green Trikuta Mountains is an enjoyable experience with chants of Jai Mata Di echoing in the surrounding and filling you with happiness and elation. Set amongst the green hills the spectacular view of the surroundings make your trek lively and fills you with energy that is unexplainable. However, there are other methods, like helicopter, but the best is the trekking along the beautiful settings making you forget the hustles and bustles of the everyday life.
A visit to Vaishno Devi is incomplete without a trip to Bhairon Baba’s temple that is about 1.5 Kms breathtaking beautiful scenic trek from Vaishno Devi.Lastly, a visit to the lively and colorful market at Katra, where bargaining is almost a tradition, is a must. This place can be visited in the month of Mar-Nov.
