Manasbal Ganderbal: Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department has commenced homestay service in several areas in a bid to expand tourism in the region.

As a part of the initiative, the service was also started recently at Manasbal Lake.

The homestay services are being offered to tourists in nearby areas of the lake for the first time in the region, a step that might give a boost to tourism of Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir tourism secretary Sarmad Hafeez told ANI that the purpose of the homestay initiative aims to promote eco-tourism in the area.

“The department has issued the homestay policies and guidelines and now it is easier to get registered now. The department will register more homestays,” Hafeez said. “It helps the people at the grass root level to participate directly and we are promoting experienced tourism so that tourists can experience the beauty of local things and environment,” he added.
