Amarnath may be one of the most popular pilgrim locations in North India. It is considered one of the 51 Shakti Peethas. The cave formation with its Shiva linga — a naturally formed idol of god Shiva from ice —is an amazing sight. Located at an altitude of 3,888 meters above sea level, the location is only accessible during July and August. The long trek to the shrine, named Amarnath Yathra, is a thrilling experience. With each step along the way, the breathtaking beauty of the valley and the snow-capped mountains get unveiled. If you are an adventure enthusiast, you should surely take part in this journey as it will be once in a lifetime experience.
