Amarnath is situated in the Lidder valley, East of Jammu & Kashmir capital. As this is literally a trekking than a pilgrimage, people need to be aware of do's and dont's. Dressing for the trip is essential because one needs to be comfortable when they are reaching at an altitude of 3000 km. It is advised to carry sufficient woolens and sweaters. Other things that are needed would be torches and sleeping bags. The place is covered with many mountain and caves, people cannot find a luxury home or a place to stay. So, it is advisable to take everything that you need for a mountain or forest trekking. Ladies are advised to use western wear or salwar as sarees will not be comfortable. Be as comfortable as possible because when the travel is steeper, you need balance to withstand it. It will become difficult if sarees are flowing here and there.
Medical posts are set up on each and every route, and it is mainly to ensure that tourists are safe and secure. There are a lot of possibilities for medical emergencies because people often get breathing troubles. People also encounter falling from the horses and sliding along the ice which results in getting hurt. So, to take care of these emergencies, qualified doctors are set up everywhere around the caves. They cater the service for free of cost. Pilgrims, however, requested to take a medical checkup before starting this trek.
A provision in the caves is not up to the luxury level, but it is good enough. It is hard to set up all kinds of luxury in a mountainous region where the climate is completely unpredictable. So, one cannot expect a luxurious trip, but an adventurous trip is guaranteed. When mentioning about all these adventures, always there is a hazardous nature which will make things unpredictable. So, when travelling to this Yatra, it is always advised to have insurance for them. The tourists should hold the life insurance and then proceed for the Yatra. This is in view of the perilous nature and for the safety of the tourists. Accommodation is basically a good tent only where there is no major investment involved.
1. Start doing some exercises and so that the body is getting more flexible. Prepare yourselves to tolerate some cold because the conditions are sadly very bad there. Have the hope of doing it and seek blessings of Lord Shiva. Chant the mantras and always have the faith that the supreme power wants worshippers to be confident. Yoga classes will be very helpful if someone doesn’t have an experience before.
2. Trekking and short trips to hill stations will help in realizing the needful that has to be done. Basically, a forest trekking can be tried because similar things will be needed on this Yatra.
3. Always try to carry the emergency items in hand, and the rest can be given to the Pony Walla.
4. More than making the body under control, it is highly important to bring your mind under control. When someone is seeing some steep mountains for the first time, it is highly identical to get scared of it. So, prepare the mind first and later your body.
5. A person who is travelling to this Yatra has one mind changing risk. That is the health conditions. People have faced a lot of difficulties even when they have the medical fitness certificate. There are certain things that need care when someone is heading to this pilgrimage.

I have gone to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra with other three female family members in a conducted tour by Trip to Temple ( batch no-H1824) from 22 Aug 2018 to 1st September 2018. It was really a amazing trip, Lord shiva full filled my life long wish and we have such a nice and memorable yatra. Except initial hiccups at Nepalgunj due to bad weather for two days The complete yatra is completed quite comfortably without any tension. In all 68 (28+40) members were there in the group. The complete group members were very good to each other and moved as a cohesive group without any problem. Credit goes to the temple to trip team management for proper arrangement and nice cooperative behavior of all the group members. It was not easy to manage such a large group with some limitations but your staff managed it nicely and the service staff was humble and supportive. Though through out the trip we were well taken care by the trip organizer (Trip to Temple) but few points ( as stated below) are worth mentioning here to prove the point that all possible efforts were taken by the organizer to make the trip comfortable & enjoyable without any additional monitory burden on the trip members. 1- Throughout the trip ,hot food was arranged with sweet dish inspire of limited facilities available for them in all remote areas. Here it is worth mentioning that at Derapuk, hot night dinner and hot water was served in each room by your staff. 2- Good gesture by them by providing hot water and tent facility for ladies for bath at Mansarovar lake. 3- Arranging Pandit ji for group Puja at Mansarovar Lake after bath. 4- Gladly listening with patience and accepting the suggestions given by group members time to time, e.g.,creating "KMY Kailash Yatri2018" Watsapp group for better communication, listing group members in sub groups for taking helicopter trip etc. 5- During the trip attending courteously and patiently all the queries about us from our family members. 6- Last but not the least, inspite of two days additional stay at Nepalgunj in hotel due to bad weather, no additional money was demanded by them and the complete expenditure was absorbed by them. As stated above the trip was nicely organized by you, but as you know, one should always look for improvement. So keeping this in mind, I suggest that you may arrange for low power CFL/LED bulbs in place of regular high power filament bulbs at all places in your night halts (where electricity supply was provided by solar power). so that with the same available solar power lights can be provided in the rooms during early morning hours also. This will certainly make early morning activities much easier. I am sure you will take it as a suggestion and not as a compliant. In one sentence I want to record that I am fully satisfied after completing my Mansarovar yatra and Kailash three days parikrama ( though on horse) comfortably and safely with God grace and due to well organized trip & all trip members support and good wishes. With all the good wishes and blessings to all the group members and Trip to Temple team.
