Panchatarni is an important region in the northern district of Jammu and Kashmir having a solid foundation of the Indian army.It is also popular as it is the gateway to Pahalgam and the holy cave of Amarnath for which thousands of pilgrims come from all corners of the world to seek the blessings of immortal Lord Shiva.The Pawan Hans helicopters operate from Panchtarni to Baltal and Pahalgam especially for this important pilgrimage in India.

Swiss tents and free food is also available for all pilgrims and travelers at very cheap and affordable prices to spend the night and acclimatize oneself with the conditions prevailing in the region.We went in a group of three to catch the beauty and grandeur of the Greater Himalayas.We trekked all the way from Panchtarni and reached the focal point of Baltal which is the military base in the Kashmir region.It was a steep climb and difficult trek to undergo due to the altitude and the cold weather conditions.Some horses fainted in our way carrying travelers which frightened us a bit but we were fortunate enough to conquer the region without any hurdles.
