Amarnath Yatra 2017 begins on 29 June. Amarnath Yatra begins on June 29 and ends on August 7 on Shravan Purnima (Rakshabandhan festival). Amarnath Yatra is one of the most auspicious yatras or pilgrimages in Hinduism. Amarnath Shivling is formed during the months of July and August in every year.

Usually, it is organized in Shravan maas in Hindu calendar. The dates may vary every year based on the weather conditions and on Shravan Purnima or Raksha Bandhan day in Shravan mahina.

Amarnath Yatra is known as the toughest pilgrimages to complete in Hinduism because of adverse weather conditions. To visit the temple of Baba Amarnath Dham, one has to trek the height of 14,500 feet. Visiting Baba Amarnath Dham is considered as the path to salvation or Moksha as per Hindu beliefs.
