A breath taking trip to approach holly cave of Lord Shiva. This yatra consist different phases like Ganesh top, Shesh naag jheel, Patnitop, etc. From Pahalgam this yatra took 3 days for completion.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is absolute free for this yatra which has been provided by the devotees from across India of the Lord Shiva.

Awesome sight-seeing, with natural waterfalls, big mountain ranges covered with glaciers. which makes this trip a Stunner.

Activities & things to do: You can have horse riding.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Useful Tips on the Yatra.
The Yatra is organised by the Jammu & Kashmir Govt.,in the month of Shravan, and commences mainly from Pahalgam on specified dates. In recent years the route from Baltal has also been thrown open for the pilgrims to approach the holy Cave.
