On the Chinar Day, famed Chaar-Chinari, known for spotting majestic chinar trees on Friday got a new lease of life with the Advisor to Governor, Khurshid Ahmad Ganai planting saplings.

Ganai planted two Chinar trees to restore its glory in presence of tourists and representative from local travel and hospitality sector.

The famous island on the Dal Lake remained abuzz with the activities and tourists were seen dotting the island.

Ganai said that he has directed tourism officials to do the facelift of such tourist attractions in Kashmir region. He said that people should have a homely feel and they should also enjoy the hospitality of Kashmiris. Ganai urged tourism stakeholders to popularise such places in their road shows and FAM tours. He said that government was taking every possible effort to promote Kashmir tourism on national and international level.
