Srinagar: Amaranth Yatra to start on June 30th, 2022, with all covid protocols in place and culminate, as per the tradition, on the day of Raksha Bandhan. 

The Amarnath Yatra will last for 43 days this year, according to the Office of Manoj Sinha, Lt. Governor of Jammu and  Kashmir. 

The J&K Government had cancelled the annual Amarnath pilgrimage for two consecutive years due to the Covid-19 situation after a discussion with Amarnathji Shrine Board members.

However, all the traditional religious rituals were performed at the Holy Cave Shrine as per past practice.
