The annual pilgrimage starts from Srinagar and Pahalgam and ends at the Amarnath cave temple which is located at an altitude of 3,888 metres, about 141 km from Srinagar. The yatra attracts lakhs of pilgrims every year who visit the site during Shravani Mela in July-August (Shravan month in Hindu calendar). Considered as one of the holiest shrines of Hinduism, the Amarnath cave was chosen by Lord Shiva to reveal the secrets of the creation of the world and immortality to Goddess Parvati. According to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board, 2,85,006 visited the shrine in 2018. The Board is responsible for the management of the Amarnath Yatra. The pilgrimage takes up a lot of state administration’s time and there is a deployment of heavy security during the yatra. With a need to man the entire national highway from Lakhanpur to Kashmir Valley and other routes like Baltal and Pahalgam with security forces, the state administration starts deploying personals at least 15 days prior to its commencement.

Each bhandara wants to serve yatris or travellers of what other bhandaras have missed and or are not able to serve. They are the best example positive competition, a pure demonstration of win-win strategy. You will find anything you can think of to eat up there in the hills. Popcorn, Cold drink, Cotton Candy, Manchurian, Chowmein, burger, fried rice and the list is endless. However, all food served is strictly vegetarian. In short you, do not have to worry about food in the Amarnath yatra once you have reached pahalgam or baltal. You can reach amaranth cave from baltal as well as pahalgam. The pahalgam route is difficult and it takes days to reach the cave.
Belief is that pahalgam is the actual route, which Lord Shankar took to reach the cave. The baltal route is short. Back and forth is easily managed in a day, when all is by your side. When I say all by your side, the major factors are weather, your health, time you start your journey from the base camp. One should start the journey latest by four in the morning, and if you have a decent stamina, will be able to manage back to the base camp by four in the evening. You can choose to travel by Helicopter, Palki, Pony or your strong legs.
