One of the most popular pilgrimages amongst Shiva devotees in India – the Amarnath Yatra is yet to begin once again. Lakhs of devotees weren’t able to go for the pilgrimage since the past two years due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Let us tell you that the registration fees has been increased by INR 20 and now stands at INR 120. Earlier, this fee was fixated at INR 100. All travellers should have health certificates from designated hospitals close to the Amarnath Shrine Board.
How to register for the Amarnath yatra?
If you want to register for the Amarnath yatra, follow the steps mentioned below:
Devotees must note that they will need a prescribed Compulsory Health Certificate, four passport-sized photographs, and a properly filled application form to complete the registration.
It is important to note that the Amarnath is opened only for a few days in summer.
Situated at a height of 12,756 ft. from the sea level, the main cave at Amarnath remains covered with snow for most part of the year.
