Fill in the medical form given there and you can take a doctor's appointment from the Community Health Center. The age of the pilgrims visiting Amarnath should be between 13 years to 70 years. Pregnant women of 6 weeks and above are not allowed to visit Amarnath. Pilgrims travelling to Amarnath have to travel at high altitudes, which can cause breathing problems. This is why devotees suffering from asthma and lung-related problems are not considered medically fit for the yatra.

Lakhs of devotees visit Baba Barfani every year to perform the Amarnath Yatra The 52-day-long Amarnath Yatra takes place through two routes. One route is the traditional 48-km Nunwan-Pahalgam route in Anantnag district and the other is the 14-km Baltal route in Ganderbal district. Amarnath is located 141 km from Srinagar and at an altitude of 12,756 feet above sea level.

According to the website of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, Maharishi Bhrigu was the first person to visit the holy Amarnath cave. The belief is that once the Kashmir valley was submerged in water, Maharishi Kashyap pumped out the water through rivers and drains. In those days sage Bhrigu had come by the same route on a journey to the Himalayas and was in search of solitude for penance. He then visited the holy cave shrine of Baba Amarnath. Since then lakhs of devotees started visiting this holy cave in the month of Shravan (July-August).

However, the existence of the holy Amarnath cave is mentioned in the Puranas. Along with this, historian Kalhana has also mentioned the Amarnath cave in his book 'Rajatarangini'. French traveller Francois Bernier has also mentioned Amarnath Yatra in detail in his book. However, there is also a story that in the year 1850, a shepherd named Buta Malik rediscovered the Amarnath cave.

In ancient times this cave was called 'Amareshwar'. It is also called 'Baba Barfani' due to the formation of Shivlinga from snow. The Amarnath cave shrine is located in the Himalayan foothills and is considered to be one of the holiest shrines for Hindus. It is believed that any devotee who visits the Shivlinga made in this holy cave with a true heart, gets salvation.

According to the Puranas, ten times more than the darshan and worship of the Linga in Kashi, a hundred times more than Prayag and a thousand times more than Naimisharanya Tirtha is obtained by visiting Baba Amarnath. It is also believed that there is a Shri Ram Kund on the mountain above the Amarnath cave. Parvati Shaktipeeth is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths located in the Amarnath cave.
