AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

The first stop - Chandanwari lying at 10 km. distance from Pahalgam Is a Mini valley girdled by tall mountain peak- with the famous Seshnag stream rising from it perennially. And it boasts of its marvellous snow bridge. It is a picnic spot visited by people throughout the year. From here one can see the lovely sights of snow capped mountains and silvery streams leaping down to flow gurgling always. The confluence of Asthan Marg, stream and Seshanag is visible from here. The forest ends here, and ascent of Pishu Ghati begins. Iegend records that it was called Peshna mount representing the heap of bones of demons who were crushed down by gods with the help of Maheswar. It is an enchanting sight that lives in memory for years. Then the party passing via zozipal reaches Seshnag lying at a height of 11,730 feet. This emerald lake which remains covered till June is a worthy sight. It is about 500 feet below the road there lies in the icy cap of the Kohenhor the famous glaciar. It is ,fed by the waters of melted snow from several glaciers. The Seshnag river starts from herd and flows in beautiful cascades. It is said that, it is as deep, as Patala, and the resort of Seshnaga. Crossing this, the party arrives at Wavjan, the second halt of the marathon trek.
