Remote areas of Kashmir are seeing tourist surge

 Saturday, August 6, 2022 


Between India and Pakistan, the signing of a ceasefire contract in February 2020 has caused to increase in tourist interest once again in the beautified and tranquil locations in Kashmiri, based in the adjoining villages which were vulnerable to arbitrary shelling, earlier.

Including women and children, a group of 40 people turned to be the first outsider to come to Machil, the border village in Kupwara district, located in north Kashmir from July 16-17.

Before, Machil was known to be shelling prone and so, regardless of its gorgeous and jaw-dropping pastures and otherworldly valleys, tourists hesitated from going there.

According to a report by a well-known media outlet, the co-founder of the Kashmir off Road, Farah Zaidi Ali, arranged the trip to Machil.

This is a very welcoming development whatsoever. Tourists coming to the remote locations in Kashmiri closer to the India-Pakistan border is like a dream come true, especially for the locals.

People wish for tranquility and recommencing their businesses and other financial activities without zero anxiety and fear. Such areas do not pull tourists due to recurrent and arbitrary shelling. For tourists, these places which remained out-of-bounds earlier and were home to armed infiltrators or soldiers only, are at present expecting refurbishment of usual activities related to tourism which would encourage business opportunities for majority of locals.

The border villages of India-Pakistan have enormous possibility for eco-tourism.
