kashmirThe 2016 NCRB report has revealed that Jammu and Kashmir recorded nil crimes against the international tourists, making it one of the safest solo travel destinations for women.

 

 

According to the NCRB report, 382 crimes have been reported against foreigners of whom 154 were done in Delhi alone. Sarmad Hafeez, Secretary, Jammu and Kashmir Tourism department said J&K is an extremely safe destination for women travelling alone. The feedback from women travelers from all over has been tremendous with respect to how safe they felt there.

 

 

The political unrest post the killing of Burhan Wani had cost the hotel industry Rs 1100 crore. As the figures revealed, about 7.9 lakh tourists visited Kashmir this year which include 2.6 lakh Amarnath yatries who visited the cave shrine this year.  Tourism players are hoping that NCRB figures will help in diluting the negative perceptions about Kashmir.

 

 

Priya Sethi, Jammu and Kashmir Minister of State for tourism said that although people have an apprehensive notion towards visiting Kashmir, it is one of the safest destinations in the world.
