Duration: : 8 Night/ 9 Days
Destination: Jammu-Srinagar-Sonmarg-Baltaal- Pehalgawn-Katra
The temple is a popular yatra destination for Hindus – about Four lake people visit during the 45-day season around the festival of Shravani Mela in July-August, coinciding with the Hindu holy month of Shraavana. The beginning of the annual pilgrimage, called Amarnath Yatra, to the Himalayan cave shrine is marked by ‘pratham pujan’ to invoke the blessings of Shri Amarnathji. Devotees generally take the 42 km pilgrimage on foot from the town of Pahalgam, about 96 km from Srinagar, and cover the journey in four to five days. There are two alternate routes to the temple: the longer and more traditional path from Srinagar, and the shorter route from the town of Baltal. Some devotees, particularly the elderly, also ride on horse-back to make the journey. Those who so wish and have the money can now make the journey by helicopter.
