The Shivling of Baba Amarnath has melted from 18 to 6 feet from 25 June i.e., merely 17 days. Devotees in large number goes for the auspicious Amarnath Yatra. Hence now it is difficult to say whether the devotees will be able to get a glimpse of the Shivling or not.
The main reason behind this is the increased number of visitors. Because of the large number of people the temperature around the Shivling has increased which is melting. Approximately, 4 lakh devotees visited and 20 thousand devotees were without registration. Hence, devotees are upset with this melting of the Shivling.
