Best Places To Visit In Amarnath

Are you planning a visit to Amarnath? Here is a list of the main tourist attractions in Amarnath.
The journey to the sacred cave of Amarnath across the challenging terrains of the south Kashmir Himalayas is a voyage of faith. It’s a wonderful excursion that’s physically demanding but well worth it once you arrive at the cave and see the magnificent Shivaling standing in front of you. The cave, the legend behind the shrine, the breathtaking scenery, the snow-capped mountain peaks, and the arduous hike are all once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Amarnath Yatra, which attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims each year, is a dream trip for many. We’ll transport you to the most important tourist attractions in and around Amarnath.

Amarnath cave

The Cave, where an ice-stalagmite lingam of Amarnath or Shiva is constructed every year, is perhaps the most popular site in Amarnath. According to legend, Lord Shiva told Goddess Parvati the secret of creation within the Amarnathji Cave, which was overheard by a couple of mating pigeons. They were reborn again and again after discovering this secret, and they made the cave their forever and heavenly home. The cave is only accessible and the ice lingam can be seen between July and August, which also happens to be the fortunate Hindu month of Sharavana. Every year, thousands of pilgrims brave all difficulties to pay devotion to Lord Shiva on the Amarnath Yatra, or pilgrimage to Amarnath.

Amarnath yatra

Thousands of pilgrims visit the Amarnath yatra every year during the Shravani Mela in July-August. The Amarnath Yatra begins with ‘Pratham Pujan,’ which is a Hindu ritual that invokes Lord Shiva’s blessings. Baltal or Pahalgam are the two places from which you can begin the Amarnath Yatra.


Lord Shiva seeks refuge in Amarnath, while his followers seek refuge in Baltal. Every year, tens of thousands of pilgrims stop here. This site is 14 kilometres from Amarnath and can be visited.


Another lovely town, Pahalgam, is located on the banks of the Lidder River. This valley town is noted for its picturesque surroundings, lush green natural beauties, huge valleys, high mountains, and pleasant climate.

Sheshnag Lake

Sheshnag is a town in Kashmir’s Anantanag district that lies on the way to the Amarnath Cave. Pilgrims who are walking from Pahalgam must pass through Sheshnag and spend the night there. The Shesnag Lake, which is only accessible by hike, is stunningly gorgeous, nestled in the midst of tall mountains and a rough landscape. Lord Shiva is said to have left his snake (Sheshnag) here while disclosing the secrets of creation to Goddess Parvati, according to tradition. Sheshnag is said to still be residing in this lake.

Zoji La Pass

Baltal Valley is located in Sonmarg district, and the Zoji La pass provides a vital route between Ladakh and Kashmir Valley. It is located halfway between Leh and Srinagar on National Highway 1. During the winter, this high-altitude pass is blocked, and if you do have a chance to drive through it, you’ll have to drive between massive walls of ice on both sides. Tourists are rewarded to spectacular views from Zoji La.
