 Friday, December 23, 2022 


Aimed at promoting winter tourism in Kokernag, Sinthan Pass has been kept open for tourists as well as locals on the first day of Chillai Kalan which began yesterday. Sinthan Pass connects Kashmir to Chenab valley in Jammu region.

Basharat Qayoom, Deputy Commissioner, Anantnag said that promotion of winter tourism is a priority area and steps like these are aimed at inviting tourists to explore beautiful destinations at such times in the year when they are usually inaccessible.

Sinthan Top is a mountain pass, a popular tourist destination located between South Kashmir’s Breng Valley in Anantnag district and Chatroo in Kishtwar district of Chenab Valley.

Qayoom said that winter tourism festivals are also planned in all three important tourist destinations of Pahalgam, Kokernag and Verinag and preparation for these are underway.

Historically, the route to Sinthan remains closed for most of winter. However, this year, due to continuous efforts by Revenue authorities and NHIDCL, the road has been kept open in November and December, PTI reported.
