Though it is not possible to know everything about a place before you actually reach there and start exploring on your own, there are some tips and guidelines that will help you to make the best of your time, the place and your vacation and give you a time to cherish forever.


  • Though Jammu is at the northern tip of India, the climate is not always cool but varies according to the seasons. So, pack your clothes according to the season of your visit.
  • If you are looking forward to a less crowded vacation in Jammu, avoid summer as devotees thronged the place during this season.
  • As Jammu is on the route to the famous temple of Mata Vaishno Devi in Katra, many people decide to stay in Jammu city. If you are one of them, to avoid hassles, check with your hotel about any transport service to the temple as some hotels have this facility.

  • Jammu is known as the city of temples. Do check out the lesser known temples like Raghunath Temple and Iskcon Temple for that spiritual enlightenment.


  • Confirm all the bookings you have made for the vacation, including hotel and transport, at least two days before the trip.
  • Servicing your vehicle properly before hitting the road is a must, if you are travelling by your own vehicle. Check the condition of the vehicle to make sure your trip plan is not interrupted.
  • Most hotels have parking facilities for its guests. Check with your hotel about this facility before travelling.
