AMARNATH YATRA 2018 BY HELICOPTER

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.

amarnath yatra routeThe 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.
All along the route can be found signs of what are believed to be the "jewels" of Lord Shiva like the moon on his forehead, Sheshnaag who hangs in his neck as if a necklace, and Nandi his bull.
