The border ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border by the BSF in the evenings on the Indian side of the Indo-Pak border is a truly fantastic event. The entire ceremony which takes about a hour is a masterpiece of coordinated effort. Huge number of visitors from all over the country and abroad come to witness the ceremony.

As part of our tour to Amritsar, we were taken to the border at Wagah to witness the closing ceremony. What a display of National pride. It was very enjoyable. As we were foreign nationals, we were directed to the VIP seats, get there early to get a seat

This is how close you can get to Pakistan or Lahore without a Visa. The place was packed with hundred's of tourists and you feel very proud for being on this developed side of the border. The low point to be highlighted - The toilets are not well maintained. After a long journey from Chandigarh that too on a cold... More

If you are travelling with senior citizens then a word of advice, make sure you have a VVIP pass else it will get too difficult for them. The walk from where the vehicles are parked is quite a bit. Chances of families being separated during security check are high since cellphones don't work here and without a pass there is... More

You need to reach earlier to get good seats. People will often stand up in middle of ceremony so choose seats so that view would not be effected by those people. Place is good and you get to see very good ceremony. Though during summers could get a little warm.. recommend taking a cap/hat.

It's quite a sight to go to the border flag lowering ceremony - colourful, noisy and lots of fun, but it is popular so expect crowds of people.

This is very important to experience the indopak border but without approach no need to go because it is made for vip only. Those who don't have any approach so please don't go they will not allow to see border just stand behind and see the screen.
