In this picture taken Wednesday, July 27, 2011, Hindu pilgrims ascend a hill on their way to the Amarnath cave shrine amid rain at Sheeshnag, 140 kilometers (87 miles) from Srinagar, India. Thousands of Hindu devotees go for an annual pilgrimage to the icy cave which lies 13,500 feet (4,115 meters) abovse sea level in Indian-controlled Kashmir amid tight security. Hindus worship the stalagmite as an incarnation of the Hindu Lord Shiva. (AP Photo/Altaf Qadri) less
