The yearly pilgrimage to the holy Shiva cave at Amarnath, two days' walk into the mountains from the roadheads at Pahalgam and Baltal in western Kashmir, might just be one of India's most unforgettable experiences. Though more than half a million Hindu pilgrims from all over India make the arduous trek over 4000m+ mountain passes over a month each June/July, few, if any, foreign tourists do. It's an experience that, being Kashmir, does have its security issues, but if you can accept the minor risks involved, you won't find a more genuine or amazing spiritual experience in India.
