With the snowfall in Kashmir, tourist places have become buzzing. Many tourists are arriving in the valleys of Gulmarg, Sonamarg and Pahalgam for fun. This has also opened the doors of employment for the local people. Let us tell you that according to the government data, 1.27 lakh tourists visited the valley in November this year. With the snowfall two days ago, the influx of tourists has increased further.
Gulmarg, a world-famous tourist destination called the valley’s crown, is covered with a white sheet of snow. Thousands of tourists are reaching here to see the beautiful plaintiffs and enjoy the snow. Locals and tourists from every corner of the country are coming and capturing the sight of nature in cameras and mobiles. Some are taking a gondola tour, some enjoy a sledge ride while some enjoy the ATV.
An official of the tourism department said that around two thousand tourists were coming to Gulmarg every day for the past few weeks, including locals and people from outside the state. But since two days this number has increased. After the snowfall, tourists have turned to Gulmarg and other tourist places. Talking about Gulmarg, this number has reached close to three thousand.
In charge of Gulmarg Gandola, Shaukat Ahmed said that the season has been going well for the last three-four months. Here, two to three thousand people are riding the gondola right now. Along with this, people are also enjoying the sledge ride. More tourists are expected in the coming days. Said that we are fully prepared, the effort is that any tourist who comes will be given better facilities as per the government’s instructions. Covid protocol is being followed.
Let us tell you that the gondola ride in Gulmarg is one of the most breathtaking to see the stunning views of the snow-capped mountains. It is the highest and longest ropeway in Asia. The gondola starts from Gulmarg and travels to the mountains at 13000 feet above sea level. Unfortunately, tourism and business have been affected due to covid in the last two years, and it is expected that now it will be compensated.
