“Great Petriotic half day excurtion”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

The India Pakistan border gate opening ceremony starts one hour before sunset. I attended with family and the best time to reach there is 1.5 hours before sunset. It was great petriotic experience on both side of border.

“A fun which is Magical, Enchanting and Overwhelming”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I attended this ceremony with my wife and three small kids. It was so much fun right from the start till its end. It wasn't only fun but a magic, an enchanting atmosphere which swept us all including the Kids to the extremes of patriotic emotions.. From that day on, whenever my kids see the Pakistani National Flag, I always hear the slogan from them "PAKISTAN ZIDABAD" and I don't forget to join them in the Slogan.
Must visit this Flag Lowering Ceremony, it's simply FANTASTIC...

“Crossing the border”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

Crossing the border here is quite straightforward. The easiest way to reach the border is by taxi or car (if you have local friends!). They cannot drive right up to the border, they drop you about 200m from the first checkpoint. First you go through Pakistani immigration and customs, which I think opens at 10am; its easy and the staff are friendly, and there is a small waiting room just after immigration. You then walk out of that building, along the tarmac and empty road towards the border itself, where a guard opens the gate for you to walk through. Once through, the Indian customs and immigration is on the left, and you fill in various forms etc; the Indian side is not as well organised as the Pakistani side, and they seem to make you wait around quite a bit, checking luggage etc. Eventually, you walk a bit further, and out of the border area. There is a small cafe on the left. I would suggest arranging a cab to pick you up on the Indian side (get the driver's mobile number) and driving you to Amritsar; there is very little public transport on the Indian side. You have to carry your own luggage across the border, so be prepared if either you have a lot of luggage or have a disability.
