Wildlife enthusiasts across the nation celebrate as the Government of Jammu & Kashmir has recently approved the development of 7 new trekking trails in its major wildlife regions. A progressive step taken by the government to boost the ecotourism of the region, the plan also incorporates the development of rest houses and inspection huts.
Recently approved by the Administrative Council headed by Lt Governor Manoj Sinha, the idea behind developing these new trekking routes in Jammu and Kashmir is to sustainably enhance tourism of the valley, without causing any disruptions in its ecological balance.
A Blueprint of the Trekking Routes in Jammu and Kashmir
These carefully planned out trekking routes in Jammu and Kashmir will enhance the overall experience of the travellers and enable tourists to relish the views of the valley up close and personal. The routes will be developed in the following wildlife regions:

In addition to these trekking routes in Jammu and Kashmir, the state government has also approved plans to develop rest houses in the area. Consequently, the Department of Forest, Ecology and Environment will soon commence an online portal for the booking of 29 rest houses and inspection huts. Reportedly, the booking would begin from 1st May 2021 and shall follow the first-come-first-serve rule.
It is to be noted that there will be an upcoming batch of 58 rest houses as well. However, the booking for this batch would commence from 1st July 2021.
Located amid different forest divisions, these accommodations would allow nature lovers to experience the true beauty of Jammu and Kashmir.
Furthermore, the addition of these new trekking routes in Jammu and Kashmir’s most prominent wildlife terrains would allow adventure seekers to cover the most offbeat and unexplored mountainscapes of the territory.
