Amarnath Yatra restarts today after break

Jammu: On Monday morning, the Amarnath Yatra started after being temporarily suspended due to cloudburst occurrence close to the sacred cave. Now, Amarnath pilgrims have begun to depart from the Jammu base camp in a new group.

The Shri Amarnath Ji Shrine Board announced on Sunday that the Amarnath Yatra, which was temporarily suspended following a cloudburst incident, will resume on Monday from the Nunwan Pahalgam side.  The pilgrims were waiting for the yatra to resume at the Baltal Base Camp.

In the area of the Amarnath cave temple, flash floods caused by a cloudburst on Friday left sixteen people dead and at least thirty-two missing.  There will be helicopters from both sides, including Baltal and Nunwan.

Today, IAF Mi-17 V5 and Cheetal helicopters evacuated 34 more injured pilgrims. To  hunt for missing people trapped under rubble, IAF helicopters also airlifted 20 NDRF men and six dogs.

Following a cloudburst that devastated the region surrounding the revered Amarnath shrine on Friday, the Indian Army inducted  radars on Sunday in an effort to find survivors hidden beneath the rubble. According to Indian Army sources, the Xaver 4000 radar was inducted and has been in use at Amarnath since late in the day in an effort to locate any survivors under the rubble.
