Amarnath Yatra spurs tourism in Kashmir as well

Srinagar, July 26 (ANI): The Hindu cave shrine of Amarnath, located in a Himalayan glacial valley, spurred tourism in Kashmir as pilgrims throng the mountainous terrain during the ongoing pilgrimage. The holy Amarnath cave is situated at a height of approximately 4,000 meters, which has four ice formations considered figurines of different Hindu gods. Amarnath is a 150 feet high and 90 feet long cave located nearly 145 km from summer capital, Srinagar. Pilgrims are not only going to the shrine, but are also coming in large numbers to take a trip of the valley and enjoy the picturesque views, grasp the freshness of the meadows, the hills and the rivers and to beat the heat. The Amaranth yatra started on June 28 this year and since then, famous tourist spots in the state, including summer capital Srinagar, Gulmarg district, Pahalgam, and Sonmarg have witnessed travellers from around the country.
