Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB), Jammu & Kashmir has announced that pilgrims can register for the annual Amarnath Yatra from June 5th. R K Goyal, Chief Executive Officer, SASB said that the registrations will be done through 121 designated branches of J&K bank across the country. The Yatra (July 1-August 24) will commence from both traditional Pahalgam and Baltal routes as per scheduled.
However, pilgrims will not be allowed to register from the Pahalgam route after August 22nd because of the longer distance and travel time, while registration in respect of the Baltal route, which is much shorter, will close on August 23. The registration will be done on First-come-first-Serve basis.
