In Jammu and Kashmir, the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) has banned more than 40 food items at the 62-day-long upcoming annual Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra commencing on 1st July. The Shrine Board in its health advisory has advised the pilgrims to achieve physical fitness by walking at least 5 kilometres a day.

The health advisory also called upon devotees undertaking the pilgrimage to the Himalayan cave shrine for achieving physical fitness and asked them to start a preparatory morning and evening walk, about 4 to 5 km per day.

The banned food items include drinks, fried and fast food items. Keeping in view the health of the devotees, the board has recommended healthy options like cereals, pulses, green vegetables, and salad along with a few rice dishes. 

The Shrine Board has also issued five points of advice to the pilgrims to prevent hypothermia, which include a healthy diet with plenty of fluids, warm drinks, and regular meals for energy so that the body can generate heat.

It has further advised devotees to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and smoking as they all increase the rate at which the body loses heat.

The 62-day-long annual yatra to the 3880 metre-high holy cave is scheduled to commence on July 1 from the twin tracks – the traditional 48 km Nunwan-Pahalgam route in Anantnag district and the 14 km shorter but steep Baltal route in the Ganderbal district.
