First of all, Jai Mata Di to all of you.
I had gone Mata Vaishno Devi last month and like you people I also tried to get to know that is there any train available to go from jammu to Katra. I found that there is no train available right now to go Jammu to Katra and eventually when i went to Mata Vaishno devi via bus route. Then i saw that the process was under construction. To my mind, it will take some more time to get these facilities. Till that Buses are only one way to reach Mata Vaishno Devi. Bus journey is also very interesting,you can see many beautiful scenes in the way. It takes only 1 or 1.30 hour to reach Mata Vaishno Devi from Jammu to Katra. Jammu to Katra fare is 50-60 rupees varies according to buses but maximum is 60 rupees for Non- Ac buses. We will update when trains will be available to go Shri Mata Vaishno Devi.
It may be possible that trains from Jammu to Katra will start in july 2014.
Congratulation friends! Now you can go Shri Mata Vaishno Devi by Train. Now you can go Delhi to Katra by Train.
