Amarnath Yatra

Amarnath Yatra

Around 141km from the Jammu and Kashmir state capital- Srinagar- the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, is the sacred Amarnath. It is considered to be one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites of India. The Amarnath Temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas. The temples throughout South Asia commemorate the location of fallen body parts of the Hindu deity Sati. There is snow all around the Amarnath cave. In summers from July to August, the Amarnath cave is opened for the devotees.

According to the mythology, it is the cave where Lord Shiva revealed the secret of life, immortality, and the secret of his creation of the Universe to Goddess Parvati. A pair of a dove was hearing the conversation between Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and thus became Amar. The devotees thus embark on holy Amarnath Yatra during Shravan month to seek blessings of Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha to receive the boon of immortality. 

2 routes lead to Amarnath one is the Srinagar route which is short and is trekking route. It goes through Baltal, Domial, Barari, and Sangam. One can easily cover the distance in around 1-2 days. Ponies are not allowed on this route. One has to walk and cover the distance. The trek on this route is not as safe as it is a steep trek. Due to safety reasons, some devotees do not prefer this Srinagar route, and the other is the Pahalgam route which is long but is most preferred by the devotees and is one of the famous routes that takes around 3-5 days to reach. The Amarnath yatra from Pahalgam is wider than the other routes. The entire route is crowded by ponies. This route is the safest route to reach Amarnath cave.

The magical thing about the sacred Amarnath cave is the ice stalagmite of Shiva Linga form that grows in size during every season of Shravan and then gradually diminishes after that. The shiva linga is accompanied by two other ice lingams which are referred to as goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha.

The easiest way to reach Amarnath cave is via helicopter. The starting point is the Baltal and Pahalgam helipad. One can avail of the helicopter service from these very points and reach Panjtarni. From Panjtarni the devotees need to trek for about 6kms or one can go for Palkis to cover this distance.  It is highly recommended that kids below 13years, elders above 75 and more than six weeks pregnant woman should not undertake the Amarnath Yatra.

Best time for Amarnath Yatra

The yatra starts around the end of June or starting of July and usually ends in August. In summers from July to September when the temperature ranges between 10 to 28°C, the Amarnath cave is opened for the devotees. This is the only time when the sacred yatra is possible.

The winter months that is from October till April when the temperature drops down to -7°C witnesses heavy snowfall that blocks the routes that lead to Amarnath Shrine. Thus it becomes impossible to go on Amarnath Yatra.
