Amarnath Yatra Tour Packages
Engrossed in reverence and embodied by spirituality, the Amarnath Yatra is a fulfilling pilgrimage in its own right.
Being one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations for Hindus, the Amarnath yatra tour holds a lot of significance. Amarnath is believed to be the place where Lord Shiva narrated the ‘Amar Katha’ to Goddess Parvati. Despite being situated at a high altitude of 12,756 feet above sea level, the holy Amarnath Cave attracts large numbers of devotees from around the world. Every year, the beginning of the Amarnath Yatra is marked by the 'Pratham Pujan' to summon the blessings of Baba Amarnath. An Amarnath package can be booked during the month of Shravan in the Hindu Calendar, which falls somewhere between June and August, which is the only time when the Amarnath cave is accessible, being covered by snow the rest of the year. To plan a hassle-free trip, you can choose one of the Amarnath Yatra packages available at Veena World. Our expansive range of Amarnath yatra packages has been carefully curated to meet various budgets.
There are two routes for reaching the Amarnath cave, the 14 km route from Baltal and the 46 km route from Pahalgam. While shorter, the Baltal route can only be traversed by foot and is much more gruelling than the Pahalgam route, which is the one mostly opted for in the Amarnath yatra itinerary. Both routes however require physical and mental strength to complete. Those who wish to avoid the exertion can book a helicopter ride for the Amarnath Yatra as well. Apart from booking an Amarnath tour package with Veena World, you also have the option to choose a Customised Holiday where you get the flexibility of choosing various aspects of your Amarnath package like duration of the trip, mode of travel, day-to-day itinerary, etc.

About Amarnath Yatra
Located at a height of 3888 meters, at a distance of about 141 km from Srinagar is the Amarnath Cave and Temple, which despite its remote location, attracts lakhs of devotees every year. With the availability of choosing a helicopter ride for the Amarnath yatra, the holy site has become even more popular as people who earlier could not access the cave are now able to book their own Amarnath yatra package with a helicopter ride to undertake the pilgrimage. The main highlight of all Amarnath yatra tour packages and the reason behind a majority of tourism to the cave has to be the ice shiva lingam that forms naturally. A cleft in the roof and a trickle of water cause the formation of an ice bubble in the centre of the cave, which grows by the day with the waxing of the moon until it reaches a height of around 13 feet, after which, it starts shrinking as the moon wanes. No other drop-by-drop trickle of water in any other part of the caves has ever created such formations, which leads to a popular belief of the shiva lingam signifies the presence of Lord Shiva. Two more similar stalagmites form near the lingam, which is believed to be representative of Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha.

Routes for the Amarnath Yatra
There are two base locations from where you can begin your Amarnath Yatra trip.
From Pahalgam: This is the most preferred route even though it is the longer one. Taking 3-5 days to cover, this route is easier to cover and can be covered by foot or by pony.
From Baltal: This route only takes 1-2 days to complete but is one of the most challenging treks to undertake. It can also only be covered on foot.
Opting to complete the Amarnath yatra by helicopter is another option that has become quite popular in recent times.
Places to Visit in Your Amarnath Yatra Packages
Other than the main Amarnath Temple, several places can be added to Amarnath yatra tour packages. Here is your guide to making the most of your trip to Amarnath.
Pahalgam: Surrounded by alpine peaks and misty hills, this resort town is one of the two starting points for the Amarnath yatra. Helicopter service for Amarnath also begins from Pahalgam. The destination also holds high religious significance for Hindus as it is believed to be the place where Lord Shiva left his riding companion when going to the Amarnath Cave. Apart from this, the hill station is also famous for offering several adventures and sports activities, including golf, rafting, and trekking.
Sheshnag Lake: As per Hindu mythology, this place is the abode of Sheshnag, the king of snakes. Lord Shiva is said to have left the snakes around his neck, here, on his way to the holy cave. Many devotees stop here to pay their respects to the serpent before continuing their journey to the Amarnath Temple.
Sonmarg: Sonmarg is a halting point for devotees going to the Amarnath Temple through the Baltal route. Being surrounded by towering mountain peaks and alpine valleys, this beautiful hill station is an important tourist attraction in Jammu and Kashmir.
