Amarnath Yatra is shining symbol of Kashmir’s secular ethos: Farooq 

Baltal, July 2 : National Conference President and Member Parliament Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday described Amarnath Yatra as a shining symbol of Kashmir’s glorious secular ethos.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Farooq visited Baltal, the base camp of Shri Amarnath Yatra and Panjtarni on the Kashmir Himalayas and took stock of arrangements made for the pilgrims thronging from across the country, according to a statement issued.

Farooq, accompanied by Provincial President Jammu Devender Singh Rana, was briefed about the facilities created for the smooth conduct of the pilgrimage at various points on track besides base camps of Pahalgam and Baltal.

Interacting with yatris at Panjtarni and Baltal, Farooq described Amarnath Yatra as a shining symbol of Kashmir’s glorious secular ethos and its unique spirit of unity in diversity.

He said that people of Kashmir have all along demonstrated high degree of hospitality from times immemorial for the successful conduct of this ancient pilgrimage.

Praying for peace and tranquility in the State and the Country, Farooq hoped that the pilgrims will return back their homes as ambassadors of harmony and amity, the cornerstone of Kashmir’s heritage.

He wished pilgrims successful and blissful yatra. He exuded confidence that their stay in the valley will be memorable.

At various yatra points, the pilgrims gave an account of their journey up to the base camps and expressed satisfaction over the arrangements made by the authorities. They also gave suggestions for making further improvements in the arrangements.

Farooq urged Shri Amarnath Ji Shrine Board and the State Government for ensuring all comforts in terms of boarding, lodging and other logistics for the pilgrims. He called for synergized efforts by various agencies in streamlining and making the yatra successful.
