Amarnath Yatra to remain suspended till August 4

Srinagar: In view of inclement weather conditions, shooting stones and landslides particularly in the state, particularly in Jammu region, the Amarnath Yatra will remain suspended till 4th August 2019.

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.

India Meteorology Department has predicted heavy rainfall for next few days all over Jammu and Kashmir, which may cause landslides and shooting stones on the highway between Jammu and Srinagar, particularly in the stretch between Ramban and Banihal, which is highly vulnerable to landslides and shooting a stone.

The track from Baltal and Pahalgam has become slippery and slashy due to heavy rainfall and the situation is likely to aggravate in the next couple of days in view of weather advisory issued by IMD.
