Maha Ganesh Top - Amarnath Yatra Series

This location is called Maha Ganesh Top. On the entire route for Amarnath Yatra (to the world famous Amarnath cave shrine) all the names of mountain peaks are named after deities of the family of Lord Shiva. Approximate height of this place is over 12000 feet above sea level. Dipping mercury and oxygen levels makes it hard for people to breath there. But the place is so beautiful that one doesn't feel disheartened. After all faith in God always help, the pilgrims claim. This route is open till August 9 . On the day of Rakhi festival this route will be closed for pilgrims and other tourists. The entire route will then be covered with snow and ice.
