The Amarnath Yatra is a revered Hindu pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave in the Himalayas where the ice-form lingam shapes naturally, only from June to August end. With an altitude of about 3,888 meters which is over 12,756 feet, pilgrims here need to follow the rugged terrains that are hard and can’t be attained easily. 

Especially, people, even with small health complications will reach the cave with lots of primary verifications. For those pilgrims, there are Amarnath yatra helicopter bookings from the routes of Baltal and Pahalgam to enjoy the spiritual journey amidst the vistas of snow-capped mountains.

For the other route from Neelgrath to Panjtarni route the fare is around INR 3,250 and the round trip will cost around INR 6,500. 

Challenges In Amarnath Yatra Helicopter Bookings

Official sources of SASB board members also stated that the online bookings for the helicopter services are on a first-come-first-serve basis and will be directly provided to the pilgrims and cannot be availed offline. Other challenges reported here are that the Amarnath Yatra helicopter journey from the route of Panjtarni and the cave is a bit time-consuming as the terrain has strong winds and a gushy altitude. So there is a 5-6 hour gap between each trip making it hard to find the spot in Amarnath online bookings.

The SASB board also stated that to enjoy this sacred helicopter ride, pilgrims are entitled to carry an original government-issued photo identity and a health certificate. They must firmly adhere to the timings by reaching at least 30 minutes before the booking slot timings to enjoy a hassle-free journey.
