hello i know i am a bit late. i am a student of 21 from kolkata and i am willing to go to amarnath yatra. i don't have any group or like minded people as of now. if anyone or any group is going for the yatra yet to book thier tickets please take me in. P.M me i will surely join.If you really want to go to Amarnathjee, you will be required to get yourself registered, else you will not be able to visit even if there is a group formed.
Generally we try avoiding moving towards Pahalgam in afternoon.
1. we will be probably reaching jammu by himgiri express which reaches there at 12:45pm. talking into account 1-2 hrs delay is it possible to reach pahalgam on that day itself ?
2. what kind of accommodation is available during the walk to Amarnath cave from chandanwari ?Tent accommodation and at langars under make-shift arrangements.
3. also how many days it takes to walk from chandanwari to amarnath and what the halts in between ?Depends on your capacity. Generally it takes two to three nights.
4. last year we went to kedarnath and gandhi sarovar above the valley. is this trek tougher ?I have not done these treks, so no idea! :(
well one more thing that i heard.
if we go from chandanwari and then get down from baltal is there any place where we can keep the heavy luggages for 2-3 days.
i heard there is none and have to carry them in the trek !! :(
... is it possible to return to srinagar in one day after visiting amarnath , treking down to baltal ? if not can we stay in sonmarg ,which is nearer . any ideas ?You may plan to have night stays at Baltal camp. That is a very big camp which would be able to accommodate you!
