Around three million pilgrims have gathered in Mina to start the Hajj rituals.
The pilgrims will remain in the tent valley today and tonight, and later head to Mount Arafat.
Most Pakistani pilgrims will prefer going to Arafat by train, as for the first time in history, around 63 percent of Pakistanis have been allotted tents near the train route.
The remaining pilgrims will embark on their sacred journey to Mount Arafat by bus or on foot.
Pakistan Hajj Mission has urged the pilgrims to follow their scheduled departure to avoid any mishap due to overcrowding and hot weather conditions
