Prakaant Ji,
I have got permit for 1st day i.e. on 28 06 2018. I will reach Jammu on 25 06 2018 itself.
Q.1: Dedicated buses are available on 26 06 2018 (2 days before) to Pahalgam ?
Q.2: From Baltal to Jammu, dedicated buses can reach the same day evening (i.e one day) itself

Yes, you will be getting dedicated bus from Jammu Base Camp...

Generally yatries return via Srinagar. You will have to check the availability about the return bus at the Jammu Base Camp.

Prakaant Ji,
I read all threads connecting with amarnath yatra for past one year and you are giving immediate response. Hats off.

I am 70+, solo trekker towards hill temples since 2005. Upto 2015 had frequent dharshans 90% of Tamilnadu hill temples . Chardham in 2016, Sri Matha in 2017.

My programme is as follows:
01. 25 06 Monday arrival jammu at 08 30 AM by Pooja Express, Kalika Dormitary, advance booking for bus for Pahalgam
02. 26 06 Tuesday Pahalgam
03. 27 06 Wednesday Chandanwari (full day halt and take rest)
04. 28 06 Thursday starting towards Holy Cave and halt at Seshnag
05. 29 06 Friday Seshnag to Panjtarni
06. 30 06 Saturday Holy Dharsan and halt at Sangham (spending one day full as per your advice as I already read in your thread)
07. 01 07 Sunday Sangam to Baltal and reserve bus for next day journey
08. 02 07 Monday Baltal to Jammu (Kalika Dormitory)
( 03, 04 & 05 -3 days are cushion for unexpected hurdles, natural calamities etc.. If that cushion days are available as free, then as follows)
09. 03 07 Tuesday Jammu to Katra AN travel to Sri Matha Dharsan and night down trek towards Katra
10. 04 07 Wednesday Katra to Jammu local Temples Dharsan, afternoon rest at Kalika dormitory, night Batinda express travel towards Amritsar
11. 05 07 Thursday 02 to 05 AM rest at station itself, then Jalian Wala, Golden Temple and Wagha. Night Golden Temple express to Delhi
12. 06 07 Friday catch 11 25 AM Kerala express towards

I request your suggestion and advice without affecting Delhi to Tamilnadu train reservation.
Thanking you.

On arrival you may reach Jammu Base Camp and stay there. You will be getting dedicated bus from Jammu Base Camp next morning at 4 am. You will reach Pahalgam Base Camp in the evening. You may start from there next morning or after staying there for one more night.

Considering your age you should keep one more day for Yatra.

Prakaant Ji,
Thank you. As per your advice, I will take one day from cushion & change the 4 days yatra (chandanwari to baltal) as the 5 days yatra. But when & where I have to use that extra one day. Please guide me.

By the by, I got reservation in Kalika Dham on 25/6, 2/7 & 4/7 and yatra parchi on 3/7.

Thanking you,

In stead of using 25/6 booking you may shift to Jammu Base Camp and spend one day there. You should start your Yatra on 27/6 morning. Please trek on easy pace. There will be a lot of snow on the way. Take rest wherever you start feeling tired.

One extra day will work as cushion. If you reach early you may spend it at Srinagar

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Online reservations of the tents are neither available nor required. There would be sufficient numbers of tents available for booking.

Prakaant Ji,
Thanks lot.
Sorry for delayed response. I couldnot decide which has to write & which has to omit. I prepared a long summary, but myself cancel that as it is boring to myself. So I give it briefly.
I had dharsan which is my lifetime target.
Thanks to Prakaant ji, Naresh seghul ji, Sandeep Chetan ji, and also innumerous yatries who are all put their experiences in all other threads.
Bagawatinagar base camp is ready only on the previous day of the bus starting date. i.e.yatries allowed on 26.06.18.
Next day 27.06.18 is jammu to Pahalgam (Next day 28.06.18 is the 1st starting day from Chandanwari). But
28, 29, 30.06.18 were cancelled due to climatic condition. These 3days were used as acclimitization at Pahalgam base camp. As I came to know that climate is clear from rain only for 2 days (i.e. 1 & 2 .07.18) , I took pony, reached 01.07.18 evening Panjtarni. On 02.07.18 morning reached holy cave, had hot water bath and enjoyed the holy darsan before got rush (as Naresh ji's advise). Around 10 am starting trek towards Baltal. After 4kms trekking, clouds were assembled in the sky and rain started. So , suddenly pick up the pony and reached Baltal 02.07.18 evening 5 pm. Next day 03.07.18 reached Jammu at midnight.
Eventhough I don't know hindi, co-yatries are helped at maximum.
Thanks to all.
I will come next year. I have confident, Lord Shiva will give darsan.
Kulandaivelu,
Tamilnadu.
