Jammu & Kashmir Govt To Promote Eco-Tourism


30 December 2011

In an effort to woo more tourists, the Jammu and Kashmir government is mulling a slew of projects to promote eco-tourism in various regions of the state. "We are currently working on several projects to promote eco-tourism in the state," Mian Altaf Ahmad, Minister for Forest and Environment, Govt of Jammu & Kashmir said after a meeting with officials of his department recently.

"We have wildlife sanctuaries, spread over 16,000 square km and a forest cover of 20,230 km, all of which needs to be exploited optimally," Ahmad said.

Kashmir, Jammu, Kargil and Leh have been identified as potential regions to promote eco-tourism, Ahmad said.  Eco-tourism would also help generate employment for youth in various districts, he added.
