Train for Vaishno Devi

Train for Vaishno Devi

Almost every Big City in India has a Train for Vaishno Devi, Jammu station in the Nearest Station today to reach Katra; Katra is the Place from where people reach to Mata Vaishno Devi Cave for Darshan

Distance between Jammu to Katra is 50 KM approx. and it takes around 2 hrs by bus to reach Katra from Jammu, a Railway Link is under construction to Connect Jammu to Katra via Udhampur

Jammu to Udhampur a 53 KM link opened in April 2005 but Udhampur to Katra, which is 25 KM, is facing major technical difficulties for a train to Vaishno Devi but it is expected to open in 2013 itself, but the date is already extended 5 times from 2009

We pray to Mata Rani that the Railway Link between Jammu and Katra is Opened as soon as possible as it will be the most memorable and exciting trip for everyone of us and reaching Viahno Devi by train will be best and most comfortable for everyone

A train for Vaishno Devi will be safer than a Bus link from Jammu to Katra

Here is the list of Trains that Reach/ Depart Jammu Tawi Station (as in March 2013)

There are some special trains that run during summers or in peak season; they are mostly from New Delhi

New Delhi is Approximately 500 KM from Katra and travel time to reach Katra from New Delhi both by train and bus is approx. 12 hrs

A.C. luxury sleeper buses also run from New Delhi, and Indian Railways each year runs special train from Delhi to cater high traffic to Vaishno Devi

As an alternative, if you are not able to get reservation in a train for Vaishno Devi, you can always split your journey to New Delhi then board a train from New Delhi to Jammu, or you can even opt for bus directly to Katra from New Delhi

Indian Railways has announced that they are trying to extend trains directly to Katra this Summer till June, then people need not to bother about bus ride and can have a pleasant and memorable train journey in the Himalayas
