Overview
In the late afternoon travel to Wagah Border to watch the lowering of the flags ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border which is a daily military practice that the security forces of India(Border Security Force, BSF) and Pakistan (Pakistan Rangers) have jointly followed since 1959. The drill is characterized by elaborate and rapid dancelike manoeuvres and raising legs as high as possible, which have been described as "colourful". It is alternatively a symbol of the two countries’ rivalry, as well as brotherhood and cooperation between the two nations.

    Wagah Border
    Stop: 45 minutes - Admission included
    Wagah Border marked at a distance of about 29 Km from Amritsar. where you can watch the entire Indo-Pak parade ceremony. The flag down ceremony often starts before sunset time (around 4:30 pm in winters and 5:30 pm in summers). As soon as the time of the ceremony is about to come the sound of cheerful patriotic songs and calling out ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Matram’ starts loudly. Soldiers from both the sides start an extremely fast parade towards the border gate, as soon as the heavy gates about 2 meters aside from both the sides, the infantryman opens the door and both the soldiers come closer, swap ferocious glimpse and aped threat. They handshake with each other and start lowering the flags at this point entire crowd will become silent and the only sound which we hear is the sound of the soldier’s boot.

Very theatrical. It's a must if you're in Amritsar. Leave a few minutes early if you can to beat the traffic at the exit.

Due to the C virus the Wagah border trip was cancelled. Instead i was offered an alternative deal which included 5 different sites including Golden Temple. This seemed like a good deal, however it was disappointing that the ‘tour guide’ (driver) took me round the temple and also

Respected Mam, You are totally sharing the wrong information and experience of your trip to Amritsar and MISGUIDING THE OTHER TRAVELERS. 1. The amount you paid to is USD25 via Tripadvisor, not INR 20000 which is justifying your review. 2. This was not the guided tour and you writing about guide experience. We told our driver to take care of you (As a single women traveler) and go with you where he can. When you booked the tour for Wagah Border, we informed you about Wagah border ceremony closure and First of all, we told you to cancel the booking and gave you a suggestion for exploring other attractions of Amritsar except Wagah Border in the same Price. Then you agreed and we showed you the places as per availability of Time. Another lie from you, We strictly cleared our driver to provide best service to the customers. As spoke with him, The driver was not in a hurry, you told to the driver that you have to check out from the hotel at 4 pm and check in to another hotel near Bus Terminal. The driver did the same and dropped you to the near Amritsar Bus Terminal a few meters away from the Hotel because the car cannot go inside that narrow street. We provide our best for convenience and you leaving inappropriate feedback to us. This was the whole scenario of this booking. Thanks

I had a brilliant experience! Lovedeep was a fantastic host/driver and took time to explain the process and what I would experience on-site at the border. Along with some handy tips! He was also a great person to talk to. I enjoyed my experience very much! If you're looking for
