According to reports, of the 250 pilgrims stranded at the Jammu base camp and other areas, 225 were allowed to move towards the holy shrine in six buses and one light vehicle around 4.30 am on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, curfew continued in Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Reasi, Udhampur, Rajouri, Doda and Kishtwar districts.
The Central government on Monday said the overall situation in Jammu and Kashmir was under control despite prevailing tensions following the communal clashes in Kishtwar.
The reassurance came on a day when fresh clashes erupted in the curfew-clamped district of Jammu leaving 10 people, including an Asistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), injured.
Security forces made the first arrests over the sitiuation that began on Friday, with at least 11 people arrested from the district over the clashes that broke out on Eid day killing three persons.
Two policemen were also reportedly among those taken in while the government said over 100 people had been arrested in Jammu in connection with the incidents of violence.
