Hello all, Sharing my latest drive experience in my 'Vaayu' (Swift-D) over the weekend 10th & 11th March 2018 to Mata Vaishno Devi. My co-travellers were my colleagues Subbu, Manpreet and Manpreet's wife on this trip. We started from Manpreet's house in Janakpuri at sharp 00:00 and reached Katra at 09:00 am on 10th March 2018. A Flat drive of 9 hours includes 15 minutes of tea break and 3-4 bio breaks (5 to 7 minutes each) and less than 10 minutes on all the Toll gates due to FasTag. I have driven from Delhi to Katra multiple times before but this time FasTag experience was super. Below are our noted time log at places enroute: - Ludhiana - 04:00 am (Gaurav) Pathankot - 6:30 am (Subbu) Katra - 9:00 am (Manpreet) Total Drive was for 654 kilometres. Toll charges we have paid 615.00 rupees all via FasTag. Hotel Continent Panchvati was pre-booked as they are our regular host from last couple of visits. We checked in early by 10:00 am after having breakfast at Sagar Ratna and slept till 4:00 pm. Started trekking at 7:00 pm with a plan of returning by 7:00 am on 11th March so that we can catch up with some sleep and start our journey back to home. Trekking log noted below: - Adhkuwari - 09:00 pm Bhawan - 11:10 pm Bhairon Mandir - 03:15 am Adhkuwari - 05:20 am Katra - 07:30 am After reaching Katra, we decided to stay back in hotel for some more hours so that we can take much required sleep for long hours. We checked out from hotel by 5:45 pm on 11th March and started our journey back home. Jalandhar - 10:15 pm (Subbu) - Dinner break till 10:50 pm Janakpuri - 03:10 am (Gaurav) That is how we ended our another trip with a good drive, hoping to start another trip soon – very soon J Jai Mata di.
