Nestled at the foothills of Trikuta Mountains, Katra serves as the gateway to the holy shrine of Vaishno Devi in Jammu. Providing as a base camp for pilgrims, the town thrives on religious-tourism industry.

The trek from Katra to Vaishno Devi shrine is approximately a 13.5km ascent. Being a pilgrimage, the least you could expect here is wilderness and solitude. You’ll be surrounded by pilgrims singing bhajans and shops selling everything from souvenirs to devotional CDs. The gradient of the climb is fairly gentle and it is advisable to take the track than the stairs. The best time to visit Katra and Vaishno Devi shrine is from March to July. Apart from the main shrine of Vaishno Devi, there are a couple of other temples enroute that are considered to be of great significance. The Ardhkuwari temple, around 6 km from Katra, is inside a narrow cave that can accommodate one person at a time. The temple of Bhairon baba is another place where devotees pay homage after their visit to the main shrine and the journey to Vaishno Devi mandir is considered to be incomplete if one doesn’t visit this temple, which calls for further ascent. Katra also provides a few places of sightseeing like Banganga and Himkoti that provides a picturesque view of the valley.
