Media reports quoting officials as saying that over 12.5 lakh tourists have visited Kashmir so far, and based on the current trend, 2024 is likely to surpass all previous records.

Currently, all local hotels in Srinagar city, Gulmarg ski resort, and the hill stations of Pahalgam and Sonamarg are fully booked until mid-June.

Usually, tourist arrivals start decreasing with the beginning of the annual Amarnath Yatra due to the heavy rush of pilgrims who come for ‘Darshan’ at the cave shrine situated 3888 meters above sea level in Kashmir Himalayas.

More encouraging this year is the fact that with the improved law and order situation and prevailing peace, foreign tourists have started visiting Kashmir in good numbers.
