The annual pilgrimage to the shrine of Amarnath located at a height of 3,880 metres in south Kashmir will start on June 30.

The decision to schedule the 43-day pilgrimage was taken at a meeting of the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board chaired by Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha. 

The Yatra will take place with all COVID-19 protocols and will culminate as per the tradition on the day of Raksha Bandhan, said Office of Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir in a tweet.

The Amarnath Yatra was cancelled midway in 2019 ahead of the abrogation of Article 370. During last two years, only a symbolic Yatra was observed because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
