Srinagar: Ahead of the beginning of annual Amarnath yatra on June 29, Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra on Sunday visited the base camps along the Pahalgam and Baltal routes to the cave shrine in south Kashmir to review the arrangements.

"The Governor, who is also Chairman of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB), visited Baltal, Panjtarni and Nunwan Camps and reviewed the arrangements made for this year's Yatra, scheduled to commence June 29, from Baltal and Nunwan Base Camps," an official spokesman said.

He said Vohra was accompanied by Sunita Narain, Member of the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board and a well-known environmentalist, and RK Goyal, Chief Executive Officer of the Board.

The Governor reviewed the yatra-related arrangements particularly the sanitation arrangements, operation of sewage treatment plant, water and power supply, medicare, access control, establishment of langars, security and other services.

He directed the CEO to ensure daily monitoring and supervision of all arrangements.

He directed all the functionaries involved with the yatra-related activities to ensure that yatris were provided the best possible facilities to make the pilgrimage a pleasant experience, despite the vagaries of weather, difficult terrain and mountainous tracks.

Vohra instructed that all the necessary sanitation measures should be effectively enforced to ensure that all flow of sewage from the camp area have been properly treated before discharge.
