The Amarnath Yatra route via Pahalgam and Chandanbari was scheduled to start from yesterday i.e 3rd July 2014. So if you are in Pahalgam next week, please expect a rush of tourists. However in Srinagar, there will be no effect due to the Yatra.

Amarnath Yatra has already started but there is no such rush of pilgrims in Pahalgam so far. Tourist can go to Chandanwari and Bettab Valley now.

No recommendable restaurant comes en-route Srinagar-Pahalgam. You must taste Kashmiri wazwan / Gushtaba/Rishta/Yakhnee in Ahdoos, Shamyana, Kareema, Grand Grills, Moti Mahal Deluxe in Srinagar. Of course Trout fish, Nadru-Palak in houseboat.
