Here are some of the buses which leave from ISBT Kashmere gate –

Reaching Jammu from Delhi during the Amarnath season is no problem but reaching Srinagar from Jammu requires some calculations.
During Amarnath yatra,
The military does not allow any tourists from outside J&K.
The entries are time-based, say I will be telling from personal experience (might be wrong) (please correct if someone knows the exact timings) 3 p.m – 7 p.m. Early morning from 5 a.m to 9 a.m during Amarnath season, tourists are allowed.
It also means, if you are from outside J&K and coming as a tourist between say morning around for e.x – 11 a.m or 12 a.m, 2 p.m or 3 p.m. Then, you would not be allowed to enter except when the clock timings say.
So, this is the calculation that you have to do if you are coming to Kashmir during Amarnath Yatra.
One more challenge is upon reaching Jammu from Delhi by bus. You have to take a cab, there are very early morning buses and night buses that will take a lot of time (say 2days) to reach Srinagar from Jammu. Because of speculations due to Yatra.
