Tour operators are aiming to make Jammu and Kashmir as the next holiday destination. With operators from Jammu and Kashmir and the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department already offering a discount of about 50% to attract tourists, private agencies have also joined hands now.
Thomas Cook has also joined the bandwagon, and is coming up with special guided package tours to Jammu and Kashmir, under the summer 2020 scheme, from March. Abhijith Kumar, general manager, Domestic Holidays, Thomas Cook said that they will soon start offering ‘six nights and seven days’ tours to Srinagar, Pahalgam and Gulmarg, including a stay in a houseboat. Bookings will start from November for tours for summer 2020, from March to June. The rates would be as competitive like those offered by tour operators from Jammu and Kashmir.
The Karnataka State Tourism Department is also looking for land in Jammu and Kashmir to set up tourism opportunities.
Kumar said that besides this, the company is working towards launching an exclusive tourism coastal circuit in Karnataka, covering Mangaluru, Karwar, Gokarna and Murudeshwar. Itineraries for a heritage circuit, covering Hampi, Aihole, Badami and Pattadakal, are also being chalked out.
