Bad weather halts Amarnath Yatra
Bad weather along both the north and south Kashmir routes of Baltal and Pahalgam on Thursday halted the Amarnath Yatra that officially started earlier in the day.
“It has been raining along both Baltal and Pahalgam treks to the Cave Shrine since early morning. Pilgrims camped at Baltal and Nunwan (Pahalgam) base camps have been advised not to proceed till the weather improves,” an official said.
“All the pilgrims are safe and a decision on allowing them to proceed further will be taken later,” he added.
Officially, the annual Amarnath Yatra began around 4 a.m. with the second batch of 3,425 pilgrims leaving Jammu for the two base camps in the Kashmir Valley.
