“Sheshnag, the destination for the first day of the Amarnath yatra”
Review of Sheshnag Lake

Sheshnag Lake
Ranked #9 of 13 things to do in Pahalgam
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Sheshnag is the first night halt of the Amarnath yatra.

Thousands of Hindus undertake a pilgrimage to Amarnath, at a height of 3888mt, in honour of Lord Shiva. An ice stalagmite formation (symbolic of "shivaling") lasting only a month before it melts is what draws these crowds.

If you start the Amarnath yatra on foot from the Pahalgam end, Sheshnag will be your halt for the first night. View of the emerald coloured Sheshnag lake from afar, boosts you up towards the end of a tiring day. The campsite is not very far from there.

Sheshnag is 12 km from Chandanwari....the views on the way will be awesome. This route is opened during the Amarnath yatra season. the first 3km from Chandanwari will be very tough as it is a steep climb. People who cant climb can take horse facility. this facility is available till Seshnag. After crossing first 3Km you will reach Pissu Top. From there another 9KM to Seshnag. This walk will be mostly flat but few ups and downs. But beware it will be a tiresome walk!!!but the final view of seshnag lake is definetly worth all this pain!!!
