Kashmir Tourism Gulmarg is completely covered in snow and there is a possibility of snowfall in many parts of Kashmir in the next few days. On November 15, more than 500 tourists arrived at the Srinagar airport, the highest number of passengers in the last 7 months.
New Delhi, Lifestyle Desk. Kashmir Tourism: Ever since the Kovid-19 epidemic has spread across the world, tourism is the industry that has suffered the most. There was a lockdown in almost all countries of the world due to the corona virus, due to which travel outside the country was banned. At the same time, since the repeal of Section 370 in August last year, the number of tourists in Kashmir had reduced drastically.
However, the good news now is that travelers are turning to the Kashmir Valley once again. The valley is currently experiencing snowfall and tourists from all over the country are coming to Kashmir to enjoy beautiful views.
According to reports, Gulmarg is completely covered with snow and there is a possibility of snowfall in the lower and higher reaches of Kashmir in the next few days. On November 15, more than 500 tourists arrived at the Srinagar airport, the highest number of passengers in the last 7 months.
Even though these numbers are much lower than any other tourist destination, the loss that the tourism industry has gone through, this low number is definitely a silver lining.
Most of the travelers arrived in November are from metropolitan cities, including Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru. Officials and local tour operators are seeing the arrival of the traveler as a positive and a small step to revive tourism in the region.
The number of tourists in Kashmir is expected to increase further, as recently the Meteorological Department has also predicted more snowfall in the coming months. It has also been reported that events such as snow carnival and other promotional activities in Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Srinagar will also boost tourism.
At this time, travelers from all over India are also coming to Kashmir because international trips are closed at this time.
