Being a pilgrimage destination, the activities you can enjoy in Katra are limited to that of the trekking you do in the Yatra. While your spiritual quests will be accomplished on this one, the adventurer in you, however, may not go back satiated.

  • Trekking

    Lace up your shoes, tighten up your Mata bandana and start your 13 km trek to Maa Vaishno Devi Temple chanting Jai Mata Di!. This trek starts at Banganga and takes about 6 hours uphill. While going it is advisable to take the Katra- Ardh Kuari- Vaishno Devi route and if you have the will, you can come back taking the Bhairo Baba Temple route. Be prepared for tired knees on this one and when you feel you can walk no more, take a pony that is easily available in the surroundings. It is advisable to carry water bottles and a few chocolates for a quick bite when you energy levels drop low.

Don't doubt us when we say that once your Yatra is done, you will have little energy for anything else. Lie bacpsk in your hotel lounger, sip tea and enjoy the views of the hills in Katra. Trust us, this is an activity in itself!
