This morning, you begin with your trek to the holy shrine, Vaishno Devi. Vaishno Devi is considered the Mother Goddess or Maa Durga. A number of devotees visit this holy shrine from all across the world. The distance from Katra to Bhawan is 13 km and the way to reach there is steep. To reach the Bhawan, options like helicopter, ponies and palanquins are available. On reaching the Vaishno Devi Bhawan, seek the blessings of Maa Vaishno who is present there in the form of pindis inside the holy cave. After that, head back to Katra and start trekking. When you reach Katra, late in the night, get back to the hotel and have a comfortable stay at night.
