Battlefield of Kargil War Opens For Tourists

This year, the battlefield of the Kargil War is on the tourist map. Yes, Mushkoh Valley which is resounded with artillery gunfire has been opened. This major development was made after India and Pakistan inked the ceasefire agreement that held for a total of 43 months after the relentless efforts made by the administration and the people in the area. Therefore, civilians are hoping that the prevailing peace will furnish monetary advantage from tourism. Bilal Lone who is a herder of Zumba Yak and resides in Gurez Valley’s Buduaab village said he is looking forward to seeing tourists plying on the route that connects Kashmir Valley with Ladakh.

Mr. Lone also said, “Most villagers had to flee the Gurez valley during the Kargil war. It’s peaceful now. The government’s plans to open the Gurez Valley to the Mushkoh Valley will rejoin what is culturally one community. We all speak Shina, but have remained disconnected since 1999,” he said. “The government needs to improve road infrastructure and upgrade facilities for tourists,” “Most villagers had to flee the Gurez valley during the Kargil war.
