If you have read my first post, you must know that I will be traveling to Katra for Vaishno Devi Darshan. I would also like to get some help with the choice of hotel to stay at. I heard that it is not a good idea to get a hotel once you get there are during busy times hotels can get fully booked, so it is better to book in advance. I just need one double room and a single room, and we would only like to be spending a maximum amount of Rs800 per night. I know that there are many places to eat there, so the hotel food is not an issue, but yes the hotel location should be close to the local shops and restaurants.
