The Historical Journey: Shri Amarnath Yatra

PAGE 5- Chandanwari to Pissu Top (3 Km)

Further, second milestone came where Lord Shiva left HIS Chandrama (The Moon), and this place got its name, Chandanwari (or Chandanbari). This place like others has beauty all around with Lider river flowing on one side and rising mountains on all sides. This is where the walking journey actually starts. The fresh air fills up your lungs and giving you the power of freshness to start your journey. Once you reach at this place yatris take rest in the Langars and have refreshments or proper meal organized by 'Langarwalas'. Yatris take a bath in the holy river (Lider Nadi). Yatris stay overnight in their tents which are arranged in the Langars itself. And then you start the next morning after the breakfast.

Langar preparation area.

The journey should be started from Chandanwari always in the morning considering in mind the distance one has to travel in one day to the next stay at Sheshnag.

After only a few kilometers of walking from Chandanwari, you come across one of the biggest challenge i.e. Pissu Top. The hill is so upright and long that even the professional and regular walkers take a big breath after reaching the top. The unpracticed definitely take breath regularly sitting on the uncomfortable yet relieving stones embedded and protruding out stones.
They say Lord Shiva is the God of various poisonous creatures like the 'Pissus' which keep attached to his body. It is here that He left all the pissus.

People gathering in the morning at Chandanwari to commense the walking journey. Hire a pittu (luggage or small children carrier) or a Horse/ Pony if you cannot walk all.

Security checking next.

Picture above is the beginning of the tough Pissu Ghati and below is how it looks at a stretch.

And how it looks from the top. The slope is steep, very steep and undoubtedly the toughest however thankfully just in the beginning. After this, you will keep rolling, but keep rolling for a lot of time.

It is also said that at this place there was once a big battle fought between the Devtas and the Rakshas and with the blessings of Lord Shiva, the Devtas beat the Rakshas and powdered their bones which created this massive hill.

Pissu Top to Shesh Nag (9 Km)
The next major destination is Shesh Nag. There are in between destinations we pass by: Zojibal and Naga koti.


Pat your back for climning the Pissu Top and as an award, enjoy the beauty alongside for the rest of these 9 beautiful kilometers of your life to reach Sheshnag.

Sheshnag and this is where we have to end the first days trecking. For all the days toughs, it has no significance in comparison to what you see and where you have reached. The beauty of this place is one of the best of the whole trip. A place where you will have beauty in every section and in absolute terms. The mesmerizing view at Sheshnag deserves a new page to start with and probably the best place of this whole yatra.
