A fresh batch of Amarnath pilgrims has started to move from the Jammu base camp. “We are filled with energy and will not go back without the ‘darshan’ of Baba. We have full faith in Bhole Baba and are waiting for the darshan of Baba. We are happy that the Yatra has resumed. CRPF and other personnel have guided us to move safely,” said the pilgrims.

Amarnath Yatra, which was partially suspended after a cloudburst incident, will resume on Monday from the Nunwan Pahalgam side, informed the Shri Amarnath Ji Shrine Board on Sunday.

The pilgrims were waiting at the Baltal Base camp for the yatra to recommence.
