Border Tourism Rising In Indian Kashmir

Srinagar, India • Politics, Current Affairs, Cultural, Travel

Respected Editor,

I hope this text finds you well. I am writing to propose a story from the Indian side of Kashmir. My focus is on the recent surge of tourists visiting border villages in Kashmir, a phenomenon that has gained momentum since the 2019 ceasefire agreement between Indian and Read morePakistani troops.

Gurez Valley, Tulail, Bangus Valley, and other remote regions, known for their extraordinary beauty, have remained largely unexplored due to the frequent skirmishes between the two rival forces. However, the ceasefire has transformed these areas into new tourist hotspots.

Residents of these villages have embraced homestays, welcoming tourists into their homes and significantly boosting their income. Previously, many of these villagers relied on the Indian army for their livelihood, working as helpers and goods suppliers. This newfound tourism has provided them with a sustainable and independent source of income.

Moreover, this influx of visitors has fostered a unique opportunity for people from both sides of Kashmir to connect. Numerous viral videos on social media depict heartwarming scenes of residents from Indian-administered Kashmir waving to their counterparts across the border in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

I propose to cover this story for your organization if you are interested. I believe this narrative not only highlights the beauty and potential of these regions but also underscores the human connections transcending borders.

I look forward to your approval to proceed with this story from the region.
