Hindu pilgrims travel on ponies and on foot along a track beside a glacier-fed stream during their annual pilgrimage to Amarnath cave, the holy shrine of Lord Shiva, in Pishutop, 114 km southeast of Srinagar, Kashmir. Every year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims trek through treacherous mountains in Kashmir, along icy streams, glacier-fed lakes and frozen passes to reach the Amarnath cave located at an altitude of 3,800 metres (12,467 feet). There, devotees worship an ice formation in the shape of a Shivling that Hindus believe to be a symbol of Lord Shiva.
