As per the latest Jammu and Kashmir travel & tourism update, from January to early July this year, around 1.06 crore tourists visited Jammu and Kashmir, the newly recognised Union Territory of India. Prior to that, during the months of November and December, the valley witnessed the highest-ever tourist footfalls after the pandemic restrictions were lifted. It has become the trending tourist destination once again post-pandemic.
Compared to approximately four lakh visitors last year in November-December, the top tourist places of Jammu Kashmir witnessed a six lakh mark in 2021 during the year-end celebrations and the peak season of Kashmir. Now, from January to July 2022, the valley received a record number of tourists again, which is around 1.06 crore.
Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai said in the Rajya Sabha on 3rd August, “During the current calendar year i.e. from January 2022 till July 3, 2022, the tourist footfall in UT of Jammu and Kashmir increased significantly and estimated to be around 1,06,24,000.” However, Nityanand Rai did not mention whether the number specified in the report includes the pilgrims visiting Amarnath Cave and Vaishno Devi Temple or not.
Moreover, he mentioned that around 75 offbeat destinations have been recognised to be added to the list of most visiting places across the valley. He also said that the government has been doing its best to attract private investors to invest in the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism sectors for better prospects.
As predicted, this year hopefully tourism in Jammu and Kashmir will see a peak after suffering for two years due to the pandemic and become one of the top visited destinations in India like before, in the pre-pandemic times.
