Amarnath yatra: Trek on a journey

Chetan Karkhanis july 01, 2018 Featured, Festivals, Jammu and Kashmir, Kashmir 71 Comments

Envision a superhero with interminable forces. The special case who knows the way to godlikeness. He however needs to offer into his wife's wish to know this mystery.

To keep the mystery safe from any meddlers, the superhero picks a spot securely inaccessible from any life.

On the way, he relinquishes every one of his allies. His ride, the bull at Pahalgam. The moon that embellishes his hair at Chandanwari. The snakes around his neck at Sheshnag. The five essential components at Panchatarini. His child Ganesh at Mahagunas Top. To at long last achieve a shrouded cavern.

This intriguing story is the legend of Amarnath.

The cavern where the superhero (Shiva) as far as anyone knows portrayed the everlasting life lessons to his wife (Parvati) – the "sacred hole" of Amarnath – has turned into a respected destination for countless explorers.

Readiness for the Amarnath yatra

We were searching for a trek in the Kashmir area. It was the season of the Amarnath yatra. Everybody around recommended we make utilization of this open door.

We are not too religiously slanted, but rather the possibility of a trip with such a large number of others and seeing what presumably is the world's most prestigious ice stalagmite energized us.

We had spent a couple of weeks in Kashmir by then. Our brains were at that point in the mountain mode. We did a couple day treks in Chatpal and Yusmarg to set ourselves up for the Amarnath yatra.

Subsequent to getting our medicinal endorsements from the administration healing center in Anantnag and enrolling ourselves at the visitor office in Srinagar, we set out on the apportioned date.

We picked the noteworthy longer course, from Pahalgam, backtracking the progressions of Shiva and Parvati. This is a 45 km trek, we achieved the sacred cavern on the third day. The initial 15 km is only a drive to Chandanwari. The trek starts just at Chandanwari. (A shorter one day course from Baltal is another choice to get to the Amarnath hollow. We will let you know in a while why we trust the more extended course is a superior alternative.)

Begin of the Amarnath yatra

That morning was the first run through the mists cleared to give us a reasonable perspective of Pissutop (the main mountain crest we would climb, the hardest stretch of Amarnath yatra, we were told) from our lodging room in Pahalgam.

The water of the Lidder stream was brilliant and clear. The sun was out. The air was fresh. Climate, great.

The primary street of Pahalgam was choc-a-coalition with individuals. Energized faces. Some fearful. Everybody anticipating start their Amarnath yatra. For some explorers, this voyage is a blessing from heaven, ideal occasion. Some get so snared on to it, they continue returning each year. It was an incredible disordered air.

Sensational scenes welcomed us at Chandanwari. Reviving welcome beverages were being served to the travelers. Fistfuls of dry foods grown from the ground were pushed into our hands. Nourishment insightful, this would have been an extravagance trek!

Steeds stallions all over the place, not an inch to save

Scenes of several stallions and horsemen tending to the cocoa snow for their travelers flag that the sacred hollow of Amarnath is close by.

An ocean of steeds encompassed us. They were holding up persistently as their proprietors went angling for travelers.

We figured we would see a greater number of individuals on steeds than on their feet amid the Amarnath yatra. (For quite a long time after the yatra, the hints of "bolo, ghoda?" – Do you need a stallion – continued ringing in our ears.)

The 4 method for transport for achieving the Amarnath yatra: the helicopter, stallion, palanquin or your own particular two feet!

Helicopter, horse, a palkhi or your own particular two feet are every one of the choices now accessible for achieving the blessed hollow at Amaranth at a tallness of very nearly 4000 meters.

Sadhus on the Amarnath yatra

The Amarnath yatra was first experience with the ways and lives of the sadhus.

Nowadays, just the sadhus walk the distance from Pahalgam. Now and then, we would see the sadhus enjoy a reprieve. A break constantly included a round of their most loved smoke. (No, we didn't set out ask what precisely was in it!)

This is the thing that a sadhu-break resembled

A sadhu (blessed man) or austere enjoys a reprieve and smokes up on his way to the Amarnath, a yearly journey a large number of Hindus embrace out of appreciation for Lord Shiva.

While we wore layers of warm woolens and fitting trekking footwear, most sadhus were dressed just in a shawl and a dhoti.

A sadhu, wearing least apparel and battered shoes nods off as he sits to lay on a stone, his substantial strolling stick still in his grasp on a precarious stretch of Pishutop, the primary mountain top of Amarnath yatra.

Conveying all their common possessions on their shoulders, they walked on.

At campgrounds we stayed in straightforward but warm tents, with sleeping cushions and covers. This fundamental settlement was a lot of an extravagance for them. They dozed in the outside "sadhu covers".

The genuine sadhus were an encapsulation of straightforward living. Seeing them, was a study in chopping things down to the nuts and bolts.

A sadhu mulls over the ground with every one of his assets close by subsequent to intersection the Mahaganus top, the most noteworthy purpose of the Amarnath yatra.

A sadhu enjoys a reprieve with his smoking funnel while in transit to the heavenly surrender at Amarnath in Kashmir, India.

Any type of nicotine and liquor is banned on the Amarnath yatra. Obviously these tenets don't have any significant bearing to the sadhus!

Sadhus being the restrictive wellspring of cigarettes on the Amarnath yatra, they would be mobbed post supper at the campgrounds. Uncommonly by youthful folks.

Enslavement after all has a spot in a man's life, it shows up!

Meet Chunnilal, the unshod braveheart of Amarnath yatra

A youthful sadhu, Chunnilal, wearing straightforward garments and only a shawl to shield him from the cool with a shoulder sack and a mobile stick did the Amarnath yatra unshod.

Chunnilal was a youthful sadhu we had a long association with.

The numerous discussions we had with him was our first genuine contact with a sadhu. We picked up a great deal of understanding into the sort of life they lead.

The feet of a youthful sadhu, Chunnilal, scarred and secured in mud as he ends at Mahaganus top, the crest of the Amarnath yatra on his daring accomplishment of doing the yatra unshod.

This was his second Amarnath yatra with no footwear. The first run through was very intense. In any case, this second time, he said he felt extremely agreeable. Lesser snow likewise made it simpler.

His definitive dream was to spend his life in Vrindavan, where as per him, God has His actual vicinity!

Scene at Amarnath yatra

To say the scene on the Amarnath yatra is stunning is putting it mildly.

Green and new is the manner by which the trek starts. The introductory way is through a vivacious pine backwoods and waterfalls.

The stream Lidder gave us organization all through the primary day. The lessening size of Lidder was a sign of how high up we were.

The fascinating part of the course to the Amarnath hollow by means of the Pahalgam is the assortment it offers. While there are steep risings like Pissutop (day 1) and Mahagunas Pass (day 2), there are times of a restful walk around well. A few sections we strolled alongside a valley, some were through level glades. We crossed a few icy masses, played in the snow furthermore waded through the solidifying waters of the waterway at a certain point.

The greatest test we confronted was from the steeds. They were in such expansive numbers, on occasion we needed to sit tight for them to pass and for the trail get out for us to walk. Appreciating such great scenes with the odor of steeds and steed crap was a dampener.

The emerald water of Sheshnag lake, the principal night end while in transit to the heavenly buckle at Amarnath

The primary night stop was at Sheshnag. The emerald waters of the Sheshnag lake were an appreciated sight, showing a campground close by.

At the campgrounds, tents and additionally offices like warm water and power are orchestrated by local people of Kashmir.

Sustenance is given by the enthusiast volunteers. Such associations originate from all over India and run sustenance slows down (bhandaras) all through the time of the Amarnath yatra, serving nourishment from breakfast to supper – for nothing.

The proprietor of our tent at Sheshnag cautioned us of below zero temperatures in the night. Without a doubt, it snowed vigorously that night. We weren't certain the yatra would initiate the following morning.

The campground at Sheshnag, the principal night end of the Amarnath yatra with a few tents spread out as seen at the break of sunrise with crisp snow from the earlier night in the setting.

We woke up to seeing crisp snow on the Sheshnag mountains. It was a charming setting for brushing our teeth!

The climate in the morning was helpful for continue. We were to cross the crest of the Amarnath yatra, the Mahagunas Pass at 14500 feet. The greens of the earlier day slowly offered approach to cocoa and infertile mountains.

Pioneers head towards Mahaganus top, crest of Amarnath yatra as the greenery around decreases and the mountains begin turning cocoa and dark.

The shades of our surroundings were playing with our perspective. The vivacious spring in our feet had transformed into an extraordinary ascension.

Acknowledging we were in a spot where nature didn't mean for life to exist was a dreamlike feeling.

Two horsemen and their steeds stroll through the waters of th dissolving icy masses in the scenery of high contrast mountains towards the Mahaganus top, the crest of the Amarnath yatra at about 4200 meters.

Mahagunas Top was dead, with the exception of the pioneers and the Indian armed force. Here, the armed force served us an appreciated beverage – warm water.

The Indian armed force alongside the Jammu and Kashmir state police makes a wonderful showing of taking care of this mega logistical activity. Controlling the gigantic untrained hordes of explorers in remote high mountains, particularly
