1) we will be going for amarnath yatra and i ll stay at Srinagar on 29th June

2) i am considering to return back to srinagar after Amarnath yatra on 3rd july morning.

3) I ll visit srinagar and around on 3rd and 4th july

4) Planning to go to Vaishno devi on 5th july morning and complete it by 6th July evening

5)on 6th July evening , ll leave for Amritsar

Does this itinerary looks fine ?

As this will be monsoon season so should i book hotels in advance or i can get accomodation easily.
What difficulties can i face due to monsoon ?
I want to hire taxi for the journey , any idea about cost at that time.
Any other suggestion s welcome. Please help.

What would be your mode of transportation till Amarnathjee Base camp?

We are thinking to hire a sumo and then we ll travel by self as it s either by foot or ponies. I ll prefer by foot
This is my first time to visit Kashmir and Amarnath so dont have much idea for the same.

Which route you are taking for Amarnath Yatra? Baltal or Pahelgam

I talked to few guys and they have suggested for Baltal.

Why do you wish to to visit Srinagar twice?

i am reaching there by plane and thinking to take rest for sometime and then proceed for amarnath and come back to visit srinagar and surrounding places.
Is there any other route to reach jammu without coming back to SriNagar. In that case, i would visit Srinagar and then from amarnath directly move to Jammu.

You must have registered for yatra by now...

As you have planned to stay at Srinagar on 29th, you would be leaving for Baltal on 30th; & would start for Cave on 1st July. In stead, if you wish, you may reach Baltal on 29th June itself and have night stay there, so that you may start your yatra from Baltal on 30th June. (If rest is necessary, you may stay at Baltal for one extra day.) This way you will have one day extra after darshan.

You will have to reach cave by evening and you will have night stay at the camp established near Cave. Next morning you may have darshan and start your downward journey latest by 11 AM so that you may reach to Baltal camp by evening. You should have night stay at Baltal and next morning you may start your journey to Srinagar.

If wished, you may stay for around three to four hours at Sonemarg before reaching Srinagar. If you follow this programme, you would be reaching Srinagar on 2nd July.
