THE HOLY YATRA TO AMARNATH CAVE
Tours and travels companies in India have for long been providing services to Amarnath Cave. This is the cave which is popular for the ice Shivalinga that according to Hindu beliefs is a sacred place of worship. The shrine can also be reached via helicopter operators who also have tie ups with various tours and travels companies of India.
This is the place where according to Hindu mythology Lord Shiva explained the Secret of Life and Eternity to his wife and prime consort Goddess Parvati. Every year from the month of July to August considered the best time, millions of pilgrims undertake the long treacherous journey to the holy shrine. Many pilgrims die on the way to the shrine due to poor health reasons so it is best advised to get a health checkup done just to ascertain that you are medically fit to undertake such a perilous trek.
Ice Lingam: ice Lingam of Lord Shiva is the only major attraction of the shrine. The ice Lingam is formed due to the falling drops of freezing water onto the floor which rises up to be the same. It is also strongly believed that the Lingam changes in size according to the phases of the moon.
How to Reach
Tours and travels operators book your journey by rail up to Jammu Tawi Railway Station from where you can take a bus to Srinagar, the place from where the yatra begins or you can get down at Pahalgam and travel 16 kilometers by foot which takes almost 5 days.
