    You will be picked up from your hotel  between 2:30 - 3 PM and proceed to Wagah Border to witness the afternoon parade ceremony. Watch ceremony from the VIP or foreigner Gallery. (Indian Passport holder Not eligible for VIP Entry, they have sit to in common gallery)  

    Located at about 29 km from Amritsar on the Grand Trunk, Wagah border post has become famous for the ceremonial closing of gates and lowering of flags of India and Pakistan. BSF and Pakistani Rangers march towards the gates from their respective sides. After the gate is open, the soldiers salute each other and start lowering the flags. The flags are carefully folded and carried back. The ceremony reaches a crescendo with the soldiers returning to the border line for the final handshake and the blowing of the bugle marks the end of the ceremony. As the ceremony climbs to its apogee, cries of Jai Hind and Pakistan Zindabad render in the air.

    After the parade ceremony, your driver will then take you to a local restaurant for a lavish mouthwatering dinner. After dinner your driver will drop you back to your hotel.
