Shri Amarnath Yatra Shrine Board has decided the price list on the twin path to the Holy cave shrine of Amarnath. The committee has released the price for drinking water, carriers, labour and tent rents which is comparatively 10 times more than the prices charged last year. As the passengers will keep moving forward from the base camps, the prices will keep going higher. Every year the price is risen by 5 to 6 times but this time it shows a rise of nearly 10 times compared to the previous year’s price list.
From Pahalgam to the holy shrine via Chandanbari, the Board has decided the carriage fare as Rs. 20,000, while the one sided fare will be Rs. 12,000. Chandanbari to Pissu Top 900, Chandanbari to Jojbal 1000, Chandanbari to Sheshnag 1400, Chandanbari to Mahaganesh Top 1700, Chandanbari to Poshpathri 2000 and Chandanbari to the holy cave shrine will be charged Rs. 2800 per horse. The tent rental has also been increased to up to 225 rupees in Chandanbari, 250 in Sheshnag and 350 in Panchtarni. The carriage would charge Rs. 10500 from Baltal to the cave and the one sided rental charges are upto Rs. 6600.
