Aharbal, Kashmir gains traction as a formidable tourist spot
Srinagar/IBNS: Famed tourist spot Aharbal, known for its burbling waterfall has again sprung to life with the government lifting COVID-19 restrictions on public parks and tourist places.
Located around 27 km from south Kashmir's Kulgam town and 14 km from Shopian, the area is abuzz with both local as well as outstation tourists.
"Every year we come to picnic here. This place gives us a heavenly feeling," said a family from Srinagar.
Over the past several years, Aharbal has turned out to be a major attraction for tourists due to the significant attention given to the development of infrastructure in the area.
"Budgeted accommodations, restaurants, water points and many public conveniences have been constructed in the area", said Shah
The authorities have a flurry of plans in the pipeline to tap the maximum tourist potential of the area.
Jammu and Kashmir Cable Car Corporation (JKCCC) has been already invited to carry out a technical and feasibility survey in the area.
