      Baldly

      Baldly is just 15km from Sonamarg. Baldly is 2nd entry point for Amarnath yatra. 1st one is pehalgam. There is nothing special in this place. This place became active during month of July and mid August due to start of Amarnath yatra. During this time only those one are allowed at this place who are going to visit holy cave with registration card. It means this is not a tourist spot this place is concerned with devotees of. Lord Shiva. At this place hotels are not available only tents are available with nominal charges. Lot of langars will ammuse you with mouth watering food provided with free of cost for Amarnath devotees. Before July and after August month this place became silent place with little locals. Weather of Baldly is little chilling. During peak season you will get everything from the market of. Baldly .. Food, clothes, shoes, little bit trekking gear. Non veg and wishkey is not allowed at this place during yatra. During Amarnath yatra Baldly became a very busy place mix with lot of dust on roads, ponnies, lot of localsand traffic. Landscape of Baldly is very beautiful.
