Pahalgam is associated with the annual Amarnath Yatra. Chandanwari, located 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) from Pahalgam is the starting point of the yatra that takes place every year in the months of July-August. The story of the place is, that Lord Shiva released the Moon from his hairs (Jataon).
On my road trip from Sonmarg to Srinagar, a short glimpse of beautiful surrounding. The snow-capped mountains are a visual treat, nothing more you could ask for. The river gushing along the road side is an icing on a cake.
