years the route from Baltal has also been thrown open for the pilgrims to approach the holy Cave.

drawers, wollen trousers, monkey cap etc. Other items could include wind 
cheaters, rain coat, sleeping bag or blankets, umbrella, waterproof boots/shoes, 
walking stick, torch etc. Ladies are advised not to go on the trek in saris,
instead pants or Salwar suits with drawers should be used.

Medical Assistance:Medical posts manned by qualified doctors and nursing 
staff are established enroute to cater to the needs of the pilgrims, free of cost. 
However, pilgrims are advised to carry along any medicines specifically prescribed for them.

established Govt. Depots at Chandanwari, Sheshnag and Panchtami, 
Numerous wayside tea-shops and small restaurants are set up by private parties. 
However, pilgrims are advised to carry with them biscuits, toffees, 
tinned food etc. to cater to their immediate needs. Firewood or gas can be 
obtained at Chandanwari, Sheshnag (Wawajan), Panchtami and near the Cave.

themselves before proceeding on the Yatra.

are set-up during the Yatra period by the J&K TDC as well as private parties. 
These are provided on the basis of payment of rates fixed by the State authorities. 
Facilities for booking of such accommodation will be available at the base camps.

Registration:Registration of pilgrims are undertaken about a month ahead of the 
date fixed for commencement of Yatra. The dates are generally notified through 
press advertisements. No Yatri will be allowed to proceed on 
the journey without a Registration Card. Amarnath Yatra 2012...


Do's And Don'ts for the Yatris:
  • Pilgrims are advised not to pay more than the specified rates for either services or their provisions.
  • It is important to observe discipline on the trek and keep moving slowly and steadily. Adhere to the instructions issued by the Yatra Officer from time to time. Officials of the State Police, Health, Tourism, Food & Supplies and other concerned Departments are deployed on duty to help the pilgrims.
  • You must also ensure that you are physically fit for the journey, and have yourself medically examined. Remember that you have to cross Mahagunus pass which is at an altitude of 14,000 feet above sea level.
  • Please ensure that ponies carrying your luggage and eatables remain with you at all times. Also ensure that the Ponywalla, labourer or Dandiwalla is properly registered and carries a token. You can get these alloted at fixed rates at the base camps.
  • Do not overstrain on steep gradients: do not relax at points where there are warning notices; don't break traffic discipline or try to overtake other on difficult stretches.

  • Aged, infirm, ailing and insufficiently clothed persons will not be permitted to proceed beyond Pahalgam.
Prepare for Yatra by achieving  Physical fitness
In order to perform smooth and trouble free  yatra, it is advisable to  start preparatory morning  / evening walk of about  4 - 5 kms per day atleast a month prior to Yatra. Apart from above If you can have  daily massage of your body with body oil, preferably mustard (sarson) oil and  bathe in the lukewarm water , this will  help your body to become flexible and you will not feel tired. Moreover the effect of sudden change in temperature & climate on you  will be reduced to a large extent . As oxygen gets rare some times , It is better to improve your physical fitness  .  To increase your body efficiency of oxygen , it is very good to start deep breathing exercises . The Yoga exercise like Prana Yam can be learnt.
Carry needful warm clothings and wind shield and proper shoes
You have to trek through  high mountains and there are  cold winds blowing . So  during the Yatra,  take Woollen Clothings, Small Umbrella (only Head Cover with Elastic around Forehead and supported by strap around the chin),  Wind shield, Raincoat, Waterproof Shoes ( Preferably Hunter Shoes), Torch, Stick, Cap (preferably Monkey Cap), Gloves, Jacket, Woollen Socks and Trousers. These are essential as the climate   is unpredictable and changes abruptly  from sunny weather to rain and snow. The temperature may abruptly fall even up to -5 degree C
Keep a slip  with your Name, Address and the name of accompanying yatri  in your pocket
Take  water bottle , dry fruit,  and baked  grams with you during journey
Keep some cold cream or vaseline with you to protect skin from cold winds
Take a little relaxation on steep inclines and don't exert yourself too much
