Officials said that over 65,000 pilgrims have registered so far at different registration centres for this year’s Amarnath Yatra.

The Amarnath Cave shrine houses an ice stalagmite that wanes and waxes with the phases of the moon.

Devotees believe that the ice stalagmite symbolises the powers of Lord Shiva.

Yatris approach the cave shrine either through the shorter north Kashmir Baltal base camp route or through the traditional south Kashmir Pahalgam base camp route.
