J&K govt keen to open Sonamarg for winters

Ganderbal/IBNS: The government is mulling to keep the famous health resort Sonamarg open throughout the winters.

Sonamarg usually remains closed for about 4 to 5 months to tourists during the winter due to heavy snowfall and avalanches.

“Owing to progress on the Z-Morh tunnel project near Sonamarg, the destination can remain open this winter,” the officials said.

The Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, PK Pole, Wednesday chaired a meeting of the officers to take stock of the arrangements being made to keep Sonamarg open during the winter.

Pole instructed all the departments to make proper arrangements with regards to electricity, water, firewood, health and security so that the tourists and local visitors don't feel any inconvenience.
