Amarnath Yatra via Pahalgam Route :

This route is longest and the traditional route for performing the amarnath Yatra.The distance between Pahalgam and Holy cave is approximately 40 – 42 Kms (One Side). The route is as follows –

Pahalgam – Chandanwari – Pissu Top – Sheshnag – Panchtarni – Holy Cave

Amarnath Yatra via Baltal Route :

The Amarnath Ji Yatra via Baltal route is the shortest and preferred choice of most pilgrims as it is possible to complete the yatra from this route in only one day. The distance between the Baltal and the holy cave is only 14 Kms. So the devotees can perform the darshan same day and return to base camp the same day.But Baltal route is also narrow and difficult to traverse as compared to Pahalgam route. The route is as follows –

Baltal – Domail – Barari – Holy Cave
