We stayed one night at Patnitop. This was a great experience and the weather, hotel ambience, solitary vast fields with greeneries and various colours of flowers mesmerised us. Next morning proceeded towards Pahelgram. Here, we experienced tough military and police checks every now and then within our bus as well as some entry points, this was due to security reasons. At last check point 2 km from Pahelgram we had to get down from bus for body check and good check also. Suddenly rain started and we had to stand under open sky as there was no shelter. However thinking a long and religious pilgrimage we undertook happily this sufferings as a good grace of God. Next morning started for Chandanwari, where passes and luggages were checked. This pass / permit is issued by Sri Amarnath-ji Shrine board 2 months ahead of journey. Then started the treck to Amarnath. Everybody shouted Jai Shri Amarnath- ji and Jai Bhole Nath and proceeded. On first day of trek, we had to cross PIssu Top (3377 meter) after 3 km from Chandanwadi. Then after another 5 km trek we reached Sheshnag. Oh ! what a beautiful scenery of mountains with white snow clad and from these white snows several streams are losing out towards a huge lake and that lake is Sheshnag. We halted night at Sheshnag tent accommodation which was previously arranged by our travel company. Throughout the journey several Seva Pratisthan / NGOs arrange food stalls, medical camps to serve free to the pilgrims. In tent tea and tiffin and at 8 pm dinner was served. Though at this high altitude nothing mentionable could be arranged for food but it was taken deliciously. Next morning after tea and light tiffin started from Sheshnag, today our destination is Panchtarni and on the way we crossed Mahagunas. Legend says that there was a fierce battle between demons and gods and here demons tried to kill Gods by throwing heavy stones from this peak. Today also these stones are rolling from different corners and travellers are to take extra caution to avoid them. After another 8 km from Mahagunas we reached Panchtarni. The whole journey is marvellous and full scenic mountain beauty as if Lord Shiva is welcoming all pilgrims to dare all evils to come to him. At Panchtarni the same type of tent arrangement and food we got. Here at dinner khichdi was served. At cold wave of strong mountain wind this Khichdi was palatable like Amrita. Next day after a hot bath we started for the holy cave and after 4 hours with Shiva Mantra chants and Bhakti at heart we lastly arrived at the foot of the shrine. A long queue was there. We did not mind it and slowly and gradually walked through snow ridden path towards ultimate God. Here we felt how benevolent and helpful are our Jawans of Indian Military and BSF. Whenever any pilgrim is pained or feeling tired they are everywhere to take charge of the pilgrims. However at last we came in front of the Snow Lingam, a huge lingam formed naturally. Beside there are Parvati and Ganesha all formed of snow. We closed our eyes to devote full of mind, heart and gyana at the feet of almighty. More » « Hide
