One of the holiest Hindu pilgrimage in North India, it is a cave shrine of the Mother Goddess, who is said to be the merger of three mightiest deities of Maha Kali (Goddess of power), Maha Saraswati (Goddess of knowledge), and Maha Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth). The number of pilgrims who come here to pay homage to the Goddess keeps on swelling year after year. It is believed to cleanse the spiritual persona and bless a true devotee with resuscitation for the heart. Nestled amidst the Trikuta Mountains, 61 km north of Jammu, Vaishno Devi is perched at a height of 5,200 feet above the sea level. Katra, a town situated at the foot of the Trikuta hills, serves as the base camp for the Vaishno Devi shrine. It is open all the year round but it is difficult to cover the route during the winters as it is often blocked by snowfall.
It is said that the five Pandavas of Mahabharata built the holy cave shrine of Vaishno Devi. At the mouth of the original tunnel to the holy cave, there are symbols of other gods such as Vakra Tunda Ganesha (the Elephant God), Surya Dev (the Sun God) and Chandra Dev (the Moon God). One has to crawl in the tunnel to reach the cave shrine and has to cross over the Dhadh (body) of Bhairon Nath. Launkra Beer (a form of Lord Hanuman) can also be seen here, who is said to have been posted as the guard at the gate while she was meditating in the cave. Twenty-three feet beyond Launkra Beer, one can see the innumerable heads of Shesh Nag, supporting the roof of the cave.
 
Places For Visit
Tankse (Rupshu)
 
Tankse is a village14 miles south of the Shyok River's southern bend. It used to house Ladakh's easternmost customs post and was the effective limit of Ladakh's easternmost customs post and was the effective limit of Ladakh's inhabited territory. At Tankse, the road continues southeast to the Indus valley and the border village and military post of Demchok. The large town of Ali in Tibet lies not far beyond.
 
Pangong Lake
 
Another nearly level valley leads east from Tankse. Cradled by marble cliffs, this route crosses a low; lade topped pass and, 25 miles beyond, reaches Pangong Lake. Vivid blue Pangong Lake, meaning "great cavity" in Tibetan, is continuous for nearly 100 miles as it crosses into Tibet, reaching as Far East as the town of Rudok. Along its shores are still found the occasional black-necked Crane, an endangered species with white feathers over its body and a spot of rust on its head.
 
 
Rangdum Monastery (Rangdum)
The chief attraction of this area is an imposing 18th century Buddhist monastery with about 40 monks in residence. Perched picturesquely atop a centrally rising hillock, which is entrenched around by the bifurcated course of a wild mountain stream, the Rangdum monastery has the aura of an ancient fortification guarding a mystical mountain valley.
Trekking Route To Hinaskot/Henaskot
This meditation retreat lies tucked away in an amazing natural mountain fortress high up in Zanskar range. Concealed within is a circular tableland with a small monastic establishment at its centre. The surrounding hillside reveals several caves where high-ranking Buddhists saints meditated in seclusion. At least one such cave is associated with the visit of Padmasambhava, the patron saint of Tibetan Buddhism. The main approach is to footpath laid through the only gap available in the rocky ramparts.
