Located in one of the world’s most incredible landscapes of Lidder Valley in Kashmir, the cave shrine of Shri Amarnath is situated at an altitude of 3680 mts. Flanked by breathtaking snow-clad capped peaks, this Shiva shrine provides a wonderful opportunity to soak in the sacred energies of the Himalayas.
Each year in the month of Shravan (July-August) when the moon is full, thousands of yatris, as pilgrims are called, congregate here to worship a naturally formed ice Lingam, symbol of Lord Shiva.
The waxing and waning of the Lingam with the moon has remained a world marvel. According to popular belief it reaches the maximum height on the puranmashi (full moon) of Shravan which is the main day for Darshan.
Sights to See
Organised every year by the J &K Govt. during the month of shravan ( July and August), the Amarnath Yatra is full of thrill and joy. The dates for yatra are fixed after taking into account the weather conditions and according to Purnima (Raksha Bandhan) in the month of Shravan (Vikrama Samwat).
TO reach the holy shrine of Amarnath devotees have to trek a height of about 14,500 feet. The date of darshan at the Holy Cave will be allotted to each yatri on first come first served basis depending upon the daily quota available for each route. Yatris should reach Jammu 5 days prior to the allotted date of Darshan or Srinagar 4 days in advance in case of opting to travel along the Pahalgam route and 3 days in case of the Baltal route.
The Amarnath Yatra is extremely difficult and involves trekking at high altitudes upto 14000 ft., under difficult conditions and uncertain weather. Yatris are required to trek for 6 days to approach the Holy Cave for darshan and return to the base camp at Pahalgam. Similarly, it takes two days of strenuous trekking to approach the Holy Cave.
