Jammu and Kashmir's Mountain Rescue Teams (MRTs), which include personnel of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, SDRF, NDRF, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), will be deployed at nearly a dozen identified critical spots on the twin routes to the holy cave shrine. Like every year, these soldiers will be deployed at marked places on both routes of the holy cave at the 3,880-metre-high holy cave shrine.

The Amarnath yatra attracts lakhs of pilgrims every year. They visit the site during Shravani Mela in July-August (Shravan month in the Hindu calendar), the only time in the whole year when the Amarnath Cave is accessible.
