Kashmir is heaven on earth but terrorism has made it hell on earth. Tourism in Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most important sectors of the economy. It is observed that majority of Kashmiris are peace loving but they are not so vocal due to obvious threats. Tourism problems are more common at tourist circuits besides in rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir. On one side, youth in Kashmir throwing stone whereas on the other side, people giving their blood and sweat, cutting rocks for Kashmir's development. Tourism has now become a significant industry in J&K, contributing enormously to the state's economy and providing employment to a large number of people.
Jammu and Kashmir is one of the popular tourist destinations in Asia. The tourism in Jammu and Kashmir offers a wide array of places to see. Jammu and Kashmir need a very special focus for the development of basic infrastructure to attract pilgrims in huge numbers. There are many areas in Kashmir that are rich in natural beauty, but they often lack basic infrastructure and accommodation for tourists. Tourism is the life line of Jammu and Kashmir and all possible efforts need to be undertaken for retaining, maintaining and sustaining it.
Tourism is main business of Jammu & Kashmir , which gives employment & business to lacs and crores of local people. This business can only flourish if there is peace and tranquility.
This business can only flourish if there is peace and tranquility. India always thought that Peace can be made by sincerely addressing to grievances. India must take its cue from those instances and solve the Kashmiri conundrum once and for all. Countries across the world must unite to fight terror so that the innocent people of Kashmir can leave alone in peace and not in pieces. It should also be the responsibility of every citizen to cooperate government as well as our armed force in the way of making terror free and peaceful Jammu & Kashmir. Good governance and good policy will address the problem to a very large extent.
Tourism is travel for recreational, leisure or business purposes and it has now become a popular global leisure activity. Tourism is the engine of economic growth. Tourism helps in women empowerment and youth employment. This day help us to spread the word of both the importance and immense benefits universal accessibility has and can bring to society at large. It is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of tourism to global well-being. We all know that when Tourism has become the continuously growing and developing economic sectors worldwide because of the occurrence of various attractive and new destinations for the tourists, it has become the main source of income ?for the developing countries. Tourism in Kashmir today plays a vital role in bringing the world closer as it has been a major social phenomenon of societies all over the world and it is driven by the natural urge of every human being for new experiences, and the desire to be both educated and entertained. Every time we travel, for whatever reason, we are part of a global movement; a movement that has the power to drive inclusive development, create jobs and build the sustainable societies we want for our future. Perhaps every citizen can do the role of city ambassador and play courteous hosts. Each one of us is responsible for contributing our bit to protect the natural resources of our planet.
We live in such a country that others dream of visiting and becoming wiser by the experience. Can't we help them with right directions, authentic fares, uniform pricing and respect for the personal space of tourists while maintaining basic facilities that we ourselves are comfortable using. We must remember that the tourism is an ever-evolving and thriving industry that contributes to the economic wellbeing of every nation and generates lakhs of employment opportunities besides focusing on environment-friendly measures. Let us take adequate steps to protect and preserve the flora and fauna, the historical monuments and heritage sites of this great Kashmir.
