Tour Information

Amarnath cave (Hindi: अमरनाथ गुफा) is a Hindu shrine located in Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is dedicated to Shiva. The cave is situated at an altitude of 3,888 m (12,756 ft),[1] about 141 km (88 mi) from Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir and reached through Pahalgam town. The shrine forms an important part of Hinduism,[2] and is considered to be one of the holiest shrines in Hinduism.[3] The cave is surrounded by snowy mountains. The cave itself is covered with snow most of the year except for a short period of time in summer when it is open for pilgrims. Thousands of Hindu devotees make an annual pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave on challenging mountainous terrain to see an ice stalagmite formed inside the cave.
Inside the 40 m (130 ft) high Amarnath cave, the stalagmite is formed due to freezing of water drops that fall from the roof of the cave on to the floor and grows up vertically from the cave floor.[4] It is considered to be a Shiva Linga by Hindus. The Cave waxes during May to August, as snow melts in the Himalayas above the cave and the resultant water seeps into the rocks that form the cave and gradually wanes thereafter.[1] As per the religious beliefs, it has been claimed that the lingam grows and shrinks with the phases of the moon reaching its height during the summer festival, although there is no scientific evidence for this belief.

About Amarnath Cave

Located in Himalayas is the holy cave of Amarnath. It is believed that Lord Shiva resides here in the form of a Shiv Linga, made of ice. The linga is formed because of freezing of water drops which keeps dropping from the ceiling of the cave.

The cave itself was first discovered by a king, Aryaraja, in 300 B.c, however it was forgotten during the middle ages, until it was rediscovered again by a shepherd in 15th century again.

The cave is a sacred destination for Hindus and in 2011 over 600,000 Hindus registered for the Yatra. The period of yatra lasts only 45 days every year, during Shravani mela in the months of july and august. This is also the period when the month of shravan is celebrated in India.

The devotees travel on foot from Srinagar or Pahalgam, which takes about 5 days.

A second shorter route starts from Baltal and passes through Domial, Barari, and Sangam to the cave, but this route is very steep and difficult to climb.
