On the left side of the linga is an ice formation called Ganesh, and on the right side is one of Parvati and Bhairava.The cave is about 150 feet high and 90 feet long. Within the cave there are four or five ice formations that resemble the figures of different gods.

Amarnath is 145 km east of Srinagar in Kashmir. On the full moon day the linga is about 6 ft high. Each year on the full moon day of July-August (Sravana) when the Siva-linga attains its maximum height there is a festival at this cave temple. It is said that Lord Siva first appeared on this day. There is an ice Silva-linga here that changes size with the seasons, and also as the moon waxes and wanes it becomes bigger and smaller.

The cave opens only in July and August. This is the rainy season, so pilgrims have to brave the rain to get there. About 25,000 people make this pilgrimage each year. The area is covered with snow from September to June. You can also hire ponies and dandies for the trip. It is very crowded during the annual Sravana festival. There is a yearly pilgrimage starting from Srinagar that is led by the Chhari Saheb, the holy seepter.


Tour Details


Shri Amarnath Shrine

Shiva - a living God. The Sacred and  ancient books of India, the Rig Veda narrates His presence in the hymns. Vedic myths, rituals and astronomy testifies to His existence from the dawn of time. The Mohenjo-daro and Harapa findings confirm Shiva worshiping in the ancient India. According to the older scriptures, He has three places of His residence. One is  Kailash Parvat another is Lohit Giri under which Brahamputra flows and third is Muzwan Parvat.

The  Legend :
This is The Cave which was chosen by Shiva for narrating the secrets of immortality and creation of Universe to Maa Parvati.   It is a saying that centuries ago Maa Parvati asked Shiv ji  to  let her know why and when  He  started wearing the beads of heads ( Mund Mala).   Shiva replied when ever you are born I add one more head in my beads. Maa Parvati said ,"  My Lord, my body is destroyed every time  and I die again and again, but you are Immortal. Please let me know the secret of this."Bhole Nath replied that it is due to Amar Katha ."
 
Maa Parvati insisted to know the secret.  For long Shiva ji continued postponing. Finally on consistent demand from Maa Parvati He made up his mind to tell the immortal secret. He started  for lonely  place  where no living  being  could  listen it.  Shiva ji reached Amarnath Cave and choosed to tell secrets. In preparation to that He left His Nandi (The Bull which He used to ride)  at Pahalgam (Bail gaon). At Chandanwari He released Moon from his hairs. At the banks of Lake Sheshnag He released the snakes. He decided to leave his Son Ganesha at Mahagunas Parvat (Mahaganesh Hill ). At Panjtarni, Shiva ji  left the Five Elements behind (Earth , Water, Air , Fire and Sky) which make living being . He is the Lord of these elements. It is believed that as a symbol of sacrificing the earthly world , Shivaji and  Maa Parvati  had Tandav Dance.

After leaving behind all these, Bhole Shankar enters the Holy Amarnath Cave along with Parvati Maa . Lord Shiva takes his Samadhi on the Deer Skin and concentrate. To ensure that no living being is able to hear the Immortal Tale, He created Rudra named Kalagni and ordered him  to spread fire to eliminate every living  thing in and around the Holy Cave. After this He started narrating the secret of immortality to Maa Parvati. But as a matter of chance one egg which was lying beneath the Deer skin remained protected. It is believed to be non living and more over it was protected by Shiva -Parvati Asan (Bed). The pair of pigeons which were born out of this egg became immortal having listened the secret of immortality (Amar Katha). 

Many pilgrims report seeing the pair of pigeons when they trek the arduous route to pay their obeisance before the Ice-Lingam (the phallic symbol of Shiva).

When to Go
The Amarnath Yatra is organised every year during  the month of sharavan ( July and August); the dates however, vary every year looking at the weather conditions and according to Purnima (Raksha Bandhan) in the month of Sharavan (Vikrama Samwat).
Yatra to Baba Amarnath Holy Cave for which one has to trek a height of  about 14,500 ft  is full of thrill and joy .The  feeling  of divine which is always beneath  ones' heart ,  burst out and one realises ‘Moksha’  as one attends  the Cave   and   perform the  prayer  before the  Shivlinga . Surrounded by beautiful valleys, mountains , one  will  always  feel  His presence on the paradise of the earth, the memory of which hardly vanishes with time.

CLIMATE
The climatic conditions are very uncertain . Rain or snowfall may take place at any time and any place during Yatra. It is to be particularly noted that abrupt changes in temperature might occur . Sunny weather may turn into rain / snow fall in a short time. The temperature may fall upto -5 degree C. 
With the changing time Helicopters have started operating for Amaranath Yatra from Srinagar and Baltal which makes this pilgrimage easy and time saving.

We can assist you by both travel ways either you are adventure lover and fit enough to enjoy uphill walks or by Helicopter.
