In the valley, two days after the Amarnath Yatra began, more than 15 pilgrims reported breathlessness in the tough terrain and extreme weather condition of the route that leads to Amarnath Cave Shrine.

Taking to Twitter, the official handle of the Indo-Tibetan Border Force said posted pictures of jawans helping the pilgrims. The batch of pilgrims left for Amarnath cave shrine from Baltal base camp.
