One of the most sacred destinations in northern India, Katra is famously associated with the Maa Vaishno Devi Shrine. Escape the madness of the city and rejuvenate in clean, fresh and natural environment.

Visit the magical and scenic Mata Vaishno Devi cave-shrine, after a 14kms steep, hilly trek from Katra, while enthusiatically chanting "Jai Mata Di" with other pilgrims. Pay your respects to Maa Vaishno Devi, a reincarnation of Goddess Shakti, and soak yourselves in all its legend and culture. Picturesque surroundings and the verdant, green surroundings keep company to tourists and pilgrims on their journey to the temple. Don't miss the delicious food served at several dhabas here.

Don't go looking for non-veg food while you are in Katra. The place has only Veg/Vaishno restaurants where you can enjoy a hearty meal.
