IMP launches JK Tourist Guide-'06

Greater Kashmir

Srinagar: Independent Media Productions – a public interest organization – today launched J&K Tourist Guide 2006.
A spokesman of the IMP said the tourist guide will serve as a ready reckoner giving information about services, places of interest and transport facilities for sight-seeing.
The guide also provides information about accommodation, tour and travel reservations, shopping facilities, banking facilities for tourists (including ATM, foreign exchange counters), hospitals and nursing homes and many more, which are of tourist interest.
“In our endeavours no efforts have been spared to make the tourist guide a user friendly instrument,” he said.
He said for last fifteen years biggest jolt was received by tourism industry in the valley. The huge concentration of troops in valley kept a large number of foreign tourists away from Kashmir. Now that the tourists have started to come to Kashmir a need of a complete tourist guide was seriously felt.
The tourist guide would make an otherwise complicated stay of tourists at new environs of valley easier, and would help them to take decisions as to where and how to make their trips.
