Devotees can register themselves for the Amarnath Yatra starting June 30. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting will convene a meeting in Srinagar on Monday to promote the pilgrimage to the Himalayas in South Kashmir.
The 43-day visit to the cave temple, situated at an altitude of 3,880 meters, is resuming after a gap of two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will end on August 11.
Information and Broadcasting Secretary Apoorva Chandra along with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Secretary Arun Kumar Mehta and CEO Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board Nitishwar Kumar and senior government officials will attend the meeting.
“This year the deliberations will be held to increase the information about the journey which will be useful for the potential travellers. The promotional activities will be planned by various media units of the ministry in coordination with the JK administration during the period of the pilgrimage.” The ministry said in a statement.
The pilgrimage was canceled midway in 2019 before the abrogation of Article 370 in August that year, while the last two years saw only a symbolic visit due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
