Kashmir witnesses a flurry of tourists

 Wednesday, November 16, 2022 


Hotels surrounding the famous Boulevard Road skirting the Dal Lake, along with others located at other key locations, are witnessing full occupancy with travelers visiting from Delhi and cities like Surat and Kolkata.

Worries rising after the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019 ending the special status of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir, followed by the pandemic had devastated tourism in J&K. However, following a revival in the sector along with the COVID-19 vaccination procedure, Kashmir is once again welcoming graciously.

Flights landing at the Srinagar international airport are bringing tourists from all over the country. Hoteliers, houseboat owners, taxi and shikara operators, and restaurateurs are happy to see this improved inflow of tourists that has propelled their incomes.

Many tourists bought flight tickets in advance and booked hotels quite a few months before.

Multitudes of tourists from Kolkata and other parts of West Bengal and other states are visiting the Valley, known as the ‘Heaven on Earth’. It is a sobriquet given to Kashmir for its unmatched beauty and lively cultural heritage. The Valley is seeing substantial signs of coming back to normalcy.

At Dal Lake, tourists enjoy shikara rides throughout the day; however, the rush increases during the evening when they come to view sunset from the middle of the lake. Gulmarg in Baramulla district located 50 kms from Srinagar is popular for its scenic snow-clad background, skiing resorts and gondola ride.
