Take proper care whatever you carry and beware of pickpockets and petty thieves.
The Holy Cave of Shri Amarnathji is situated at an altitude of 13,500 feet atop the South Kashmir Himalayas. The high altitude journey to the holy Cave involves exposure to extreme cold, low humidity, increased ultra violet radiations and reduced air pressure and oxygen.
Since you will only be there for one day, the body may not get enough time to acclimatize and adjust to the low oxygen levels, therefore you must not exert yourself. Go slow and always catch your breath. For your journey to the holy cave and and back, it is highly recommended that you do not trek and instead use a Horse or Palki.
