The Amarnathji Shrine Board and the Jammu and Kashmir administration are all set for the annual Amarnath Yatra. This year the yatra will begin on June 29 and end on August 19. Services like online helicopter booking for the Amarnath Yatra will begin from June 1.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has already started preparations for the smooth conduct of the yatra.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has almost completed the snow clearance work on the Baltal-Domel track and further development of the track is underway. Dozens of workers and big machines are engaged in snow clearance work on this route. Wherever there is snow, it is being removed and where there is snow from leaves, it is being cleared. There is still about 5 to 7 feet of snow on both the routes to the cave. Necessary instructions have been given to the Project Beacon officers of BRO to complete all the related works on time, including track development, railing and wire meshing, snow removal, security work, track lighting and other necessary works.

The government has issued clear instructions to the department heads to ensure that all preparations are completed within the stipulated time frame, so that the best possible services can be provided to the devotees. Let us tell you that the annual Amarnath Yatra takes place through two routes – the traditional 48 km long Nunwan-Pahalgam route in Anantnag district and the shorter but 14 km long Baltal route in Ganderbal district. The Yatra attracts thousands of devotees from far and wide who come to see the naturally formed Shivling of Lord Shiva inside the cave temple.
