Go to the temple by walk as it is more adventurous and at night is preferable as it will not make you tired. The horse people will may cheat you so be careful while dealing with them

Vaishno Devi + Kashmir trip in August (4 Replies)
Am planning to travel with wife to Vaishno Devi Mandir and thereafter to Kashmir in mid of august. Require ur suggestions : 1. Whether August month is good for both trips. 2. Whether 1 week is sufficient for covering both the locations. 3. If u can suggest good hotels in Katra and kashmir

Response fromLoosePebbles|
Hii.. August is a hioh peak season in kashmir due to Amarnath Yatra. As it rains in Katra too, it is a risky time to walk till Bhavan for Yatra due to occasional landslides. Yes Kashmir is beautiful in August too, but if you are comfortable with the hoards to tourists then go ahead with your plans. Good Luck
