Amarnath Yatra Dates

Expected 1st July 2021 till 21st August 2021

Booking Open for above dates

Amarnath Yatra Date is one of the main core considerable points before planning to come for Annual Pilgrimage of Lord Shiva. Amarnath Yatra  Date is fixed by Jammu and Kashmir government by its nodal agency Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board. Every year Amarnath Yatra is organised in the month of  June /July till August. The starting and closing dates are different for each year. Amarnath Yatra Dates also depend upon the hindu calendar and Masik Shivratri. Every year the starting date of yatra is not fixed but the closing date of yatra is Sawan Purnima. 

Sometimes Annual Holy Pilgrimage starts in the month of June and sometimes it starts in July. Amarnath Yatra if delayed then it starts by 2nd of july that particular year otherwise the second, third or fourth week of june are fixed. In a similar way the last date of Yatra is Sawan Purnima. So whatever dates will fall during sawan Purnima yatra is closed for that year. Generally Sawan Purnima comes in the month of August only . So August is fixed for the closing date.

The duration of Amarnath Yatra is also not fixed for each year. It is scheduled for somewhere  between 35 days to 60 days maximum in a particular year. Earlier Amarnath Yatra were organised for 60 days later due to multiple local problems and route clearance issue duration gets reduced  year by year.  Below we are giving the history of the last 11 years of Amarnath yatra dates & duration through a Table chart according to what you can assume,  understand and plan your yatra well in advance.

In  2020 Amarnath Yatra Dates were fixed for 23rd June 2020 till 03rd August 2020 but due to Covid19 Yatra Rescheduled to 21st July 2020 till 03rd June 2020.

Now come to the point for Amarnath Yatra 2021 Date.

The Amarnath Yatra 2021 Date is not fixed yet but if you see the above table and analyse then  it  is expected to start from 01st July 2021 till 21 st August 2021.  21st August is the last date due to Sawan Purnima. Starting date of 2021 may increase or decrease by 4-7 days as expected. So if You are planning to Visit for Amarnath Yatra you can book your dates for 05 th July 2021 till 21st August 2021. It is 100% safe and confirmed.The date of Amarnath Yatra is announced by Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, the main nodal agency responsible to announce the dates

Amarnath Yatra Shrine Board is similar to Maa Vaishno Devi Shrine Board and is a government agency who  is also responsible to manage and organize this holy pilgrimage every year. If you see the above table then you will find most of the dates announced during the month of January. Some dates are announced in the month of March and Feb because earlier everything was not updated on time due to multiple problems locally and due to waiting for  Mahashivratri festival dates too

For Year 2021 you can expect actual dates of yatra to be announced somewhere between 2nd to third week of January 2021.

In Recent years it is found that due to heavy snow on track routes are not cleared on time so chances become more that yatra gets delayed even after announcement of actual dates. So considering this point if you plan to book the tour packages we will request you to avoid the initial one week  to have a smooth and easy Pilgrimage.

Since we are Amarnath Yatra Pilgrimage Tour organiser company by the name of Amarnathjiyatra.com so for us it is very very  important to give you reliable and confirmed dates for the Annual Pilgrimage well in advance. We  generally take advance booking years ahead of the pilgrimage or you can say before the announcement of actual dates by amarnathji shrine board . So for us it’s very very important to have confirmed dates confidently  which we quote to our pilgrims.  Since Advance booking is very much required due to limitation in Helicopter tickets, Registration and Hotels accommodation so its our confidence, duty and your love for our agency makes us no1 tour operator in the field of all Lord shiva Pilgrimage especially Amarnath Yatra. Our dates never bounce.

Advance booking dates are also important if you want to book your tour at a cheaper rate along with your flight tickets. Since we arrange Amarnath Yatra Pilgrimage Tours for International Pilgrims too so it’s our responsibility to give you safe and confirmed dates well in advance. Every year our predictions are correct  provided any mishappening doesn’t happen that particular year which is beyond our control like last year covid 19.
