Amarnath Yatra


The holy shrine of Amarnath Ji, or Amarnath Temple, is located at an elevation of approximately 3,888 meters, or about 29 kilometres, from Pahalgam. Inside the cave is a Shiva Lingam (a phallus-shaped formation made of ice), considered to be the holiest symbol by Hindus all across the globe. Devotees visit it in large numbers from June to August, with the pilgrimage tour famously known as Amarnath Yatra, chardham yatra by helicopter, which begins from Chandanwari. It is considered to be one of the 18 Maha Shakti Peethas, or the holiest shrines in Hinduism. Besides seeking blessings at the Amaranth Temple, the views surrounding are extraordinarily magnificent while travelling the Amarnath Yatra by helicopter.


To worship the supreme god of Hinduism millions of devotees trek every year through icy glaciers to reach the Amarnath Yatra by helicopter. However, for those who can’t trek or walk for long distances, Shri Amarnath Shrine boards organize Yatra by regular helicopter services.
