Amarnath Yatra package: Tiptoe into the doorsteps of Shiva

Amarnath literally implies the Immortal Lord or the God who is \’amar\’ (immortal). It refers to Lord Shiva who, as per Hindu mythology, has been described as the commander of death. The Amarnath cave is his abode where his divine presence can be felt by all the theists and believers in Him. God may reside in heavens where you can reach only after leaving this mortal earth. But if you wish to get a scent of Him in your lifetime, then Amarnath is the closest thing. Amarnath Yatra is organized every year during the warmer season between May-November (exact timings differ every year depending on religious dates).

Amarnath Yatra 2013 too is ready to take off and most of the pilgrims have already registered for it. You must notice that every pilgrim, tourist and visitor is required to mandatorily register himself or herself with the authorities of Jammu & Kashmir. Non-registered pilgrims are not permitted to make the trip. So, if you haven\’t got yourself registered still, then you can still do so (there is some time still left) by booking an Amarnath yatra package.

Shrine and holy darshan: The Amarnath cave houses the famous ice-sculpted shrine (shivling) of Lord Shiva. Since, the cave is located at the upper Himalayan altitude, the shrine stays frozen in non-summer days. When the summer strikes, the ice begins to melt somewhere around May. And it is then that the gates of the cave are thrown open for pilgrims. It is the \’darshan\’ of a lifetime though you will get just a few seconds to take a glimpse of the shrine and offer your prayers. There is a maddening crowd and a serpentine queue, since thousands of pilgrims from all over India (and even abroad) come for the yatra. It is thus a vast & vivid holy spectacle and an experience of a lifetime.

Challenges of trekking: When you are going for any Himalayan spiritual journey, you can be sure that you will need to do a lot of trekking. Most of the dhams and shrines are situated at places which are very high and fairly inaccessible. Amarnath Yatra 2013 will be no different. You will need to cover a lot of distance through trekking on foot. However, there are services and facilities like ponies and palanquins available for the children, elderly and the wearied.

Other facilities available: Though the Himalayan territory is no plush metro city, it still has plenty of facilities for you. The tourist traffic is very high in the region. So it is natural that organizations and companies have set up various kinds of accommodations that include hotels, inns and guest houses. The nearby areas of Pahalgam also offer perfect retreat and amazing sightseeing. But it is advisable that you carry your basic medicines and winter clothes. Also, the major facilities of everyday need shall be provided under Amarnath Yatra Package.

For registration in amarnath yatra 2013 by helicopter, you must contact Hungry Bags at its website www.hungrybags.com. It can get you registered and also supply an ideal Amarnath Yatra Tour Package as per your plans and custom needs.
