The Amarnath yatra can be completed in two ways-- The first route is 46 to 48 kms long which starts at Pahalgam and takes 5 days to complete. The second route may just be about 14 to 16 kms long but is quite difficult since it has a steep climb. Due to this reason people prefer the first route.
The age criteria for going on the Amarnath Yatra is 13 to 70 years. There is also a special mention for pregnant women which states that women who are pregnant for six or more weeks are not permitted on the yatra due to risks for them and their child.
