March 25, 2009

Taking a cue from Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir is set to promote eco-tourism which will give tourists myriad experiences of the countryside while helping locals living in remote areas.

Under the eco-tourism project, the state would promote adventure tourism, trekking, water rafting, bird watching, fishing, night camps, forest camps, wetland visits and wildlife education.

The objective of developing eco-tourism facility in Jammu and Kashmir is also to uplift people living in rural and remote areas.
