ABOUT AJ&K

AZAD JAMMU AND 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.
