Somewhere at 9am we reached Katra we were on 4 degree and started feeling some glimpse of cold , the view around station was awesome. we all were using prepaid network so everyone's network was all dead, actually only postpaid network were allowed in Jammu. we took hotel and luckily again we got hotel at very low cost(800 for all 6 of us) . We rested for sometimes and left for temple at around 1 noon.
After 6-7 hours of walking we reached Vaishno bhavan which is situated at altitude of approx 15k meters and 13.5 kms from katra. Bhawan is key location of the entire yatra, arrangements and staying facilities are created for devotees. We were just 1.5 kms away from our destination, the last 1.5 kms of yatra was big relief for those muscles as it is gently sloping downwards, temperature was around -3 and we were walking bare footed. the feeling of having almost reach their fills the extra fervor and devotion in us. Atlast we reached the holy cave Inside the Holy Cave the Goddess has revealed herself in the form of Holy Pindies manifesting Mata in her three forms Maha Kali, Maha Lakshmi and Mata Saraswati. After dharshan we rested for couple of hours there were cloak rooms and free bankets available for yatris, for blankets they take 100₹ as deposit for single blanket and you will get your money back after you return those blankets. Time was 1 at night we head towards Bhairon nath temple which was around 3 kms away from there. After taking darshan , around 3 am we moved descending downhills and reached our hotel at around 7am. Around 1 pm we took train from katra and reached pathankot, we felt so relieved as our network started working. After having some food we took bus from pathankot and reached manali around 7 in the morning.
P.S. If you ever visit katra or anywhere in jammu aur ghar pe akhrot(walnuts) leke nahi gaye toh soch lena lagg jaegi, vaha bhut saste milte hai aur mujhe pata nhi tha toh mai nahi le gya😅.
