Fresh batch of 3178 pilgrims leave for Amarnath Cave Shrine from Jammu

JAMMU: A fresh batch of 3178 pilgrims on Monday left for the Shri Amarnath Cave Shrine in South of Himalayas from Yatri Niwas, Bhagwati Nagar base camp here.

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.
