Amarnath Dham Yatra

Baltal – Amarnath Route

This route much shorter to the tradition Pahalgam route that pilgrims undertake for Amarnath Yatra. This route is much shorter that the Pahalgam route as it allows pilgrims to take a round trip in 1-2 days. Young and healthy people looking for adventure amidst the religious trip happen to take this route.

Route: Jammu – Srinagar – Baltal – Domali – Barari Marg – Sangam – Holy Cave

Note: The width of this trek is a bit narrow as compared to traditional Chandanwari-Holy Cave route. In addition to that there are some steep rises & falls on the way. It is always recommended to come down from this route as it takes only 1 day to reach Baltal from Amarnath Cave.

Jammu – Baltal: The distance between Jammu to Baltal, which is 400 km, can be covered by taxi or buses. These are available at Tourist Reception Centre J & K Govt, Raghunath Bazaar early in the morning. One can also reach Srinagar by air and then travel to Baltal by road. Passing through beautiful valleys, steeped mountains, one is sure to forget Self as a person and immerse himself in the divinity of Lord Shiva.

Baltal – Holy Cave: The distance between Baltal and Amarnath shrine is mere 14 kms which can be covered by foot or with the help of ponies. There are some steep cliffs and gorges on the way as compared to the Chandanwari route, but pilgrims can return back to Baltal through this route in single day itself.
