Srinagar: The Tourism Department of Jammu and Kashmir conducted several events in Srinagar's Dal Lake on Sunday to observe World Tourism Day.

The department took the initiative to kickstart the tourism activities in the Union Territory amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Nisar Ahmad Wani, Director Tourism, Kashmir told ANI, “We are celebrating the occasion across the Union Territory. We have sports activities and cultural programmes at various tourist spots like Srinagar, Gulmarg.”  

The tourism sector was badly hit due to COVID-19 imposed lockdown in the region.

“Our motive is to boost the tourism sector and spread the message that Kashmir is ready for tourism. The sector was impacted due to coronavirus but now the administration has introduced standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the tourism sector. It will help the tourists here to contain the spread of the virus during their visit,” Wani told ANI.

Hamid Aziz, a participant, told the news agency, “ I have participated in the cycle race along. These activities will help in boosting the tourism of the Union Territory.”
