What is the state tourism’s agenda for 2016?
Our state has the strength to be one of the best destinations in the world and we will ensure that tourists get the best of facilities. Be it pilgrims, golfing, heritage, shopping, cuisine or destinations, we are looking to improve our infrastructure in the next two to three years and be the best destination as far as infrastructure is concerned. Our main focus will be on the development of entertainment parks, light and sound shows, air safaris, river and lake cruises. We also plan to focus on new products like eco-tourism and rural tourism. The local resorts have tied up with five-star chains to improve high-end tourism in the valley. Hopefully, 2016 should be a good year for us as we want to promote adventure tourism, golfing, pilgrim tourism in J&K and Ladakh. We aim to receive a good number of tourists in the coming season. such spaces, we invite large corporates to hold their conferences every year.
