AJ&K Tourism

AZAD JAMMU & KASHMIR

Tourism has established itself as an important industry in the world. It has proved its effectiveness in economic uplift as well as in introducing historical and traditional heritages. Besides other benefits, Tourism is a growth industry and grows faster than most other exports oriented industries. Tourism industry may promote a better image of the country and thereby enable it to achieve other objectives. Tourism can be an instrument of a process of transferring wealth from richer parts to the poorer parts of the country and securing a more equitable distribution of wealth.

In Azad Jammu & Kashmir potential-wise, after hydro power, tourism can be described as the other main resource.

 Tourism in Azad Jammu & Kashmir

Azad Kashmir is bestowed by nature with exquisite natural beauty and has great potential for development of tourism. The picturesque beauty of its valleys, dense forests, winding rivers, turbulent foaming streams , majestic towering mountains, bracing Climate, historical & cultural heritage, holistic shrines & festivals and diversity of flora and fauna all go together to make it an excellent tourist resort.. The area is full with variety of landscapes. Hiking and tracking sites, trout fishing in the frozen waters of the Neelum River and the remains of the Buddhist civilization in the Sharda Valley are other areas of tourist attraction. The beautiful wood work, the famous Kashmiri handicrafts, traditional Kashmiri foods and above all a clean and pristine environment presents other areas of delight for the tourists on this ‘heaven on earth’. The custom rich and traditional Society of AJK is also a subject of anthropological value. The State of Azad Jammu & Kashmir contributes a distinctive cultural entity developed by its people, which is profoundly different from the rest of the Sub-Continent.

Its mountain terrain and wide valleys decanted harsh terms on the development of its culture. This is why the people of Azad Jammu & Kashmir have developed into a persistent hard-working, non aggressive race which leads a simple & frugal life. Their dances, music, dress, traditions, jewelry, handicrafts and performing arts all are windows to their character.
