In 2012, Lonely Planet had awarded Jammu & Kashmir with the “best emerging destination” in India tag. This year, Jammu & Kashmir has been named the best romantic destination in India, while Switzerland has been named the best international romantic destination, and for good reason! “We are in a process of image building. We have been portrayed as negative destination for pretty long. Now we have seen the change. Change is already there. People are interested in Kashmir and they want to come. There are people who have a dream in life to visit Kashmir. So that things are looking positive. When these awards come it helps us in the image building,” said Mehmood Ahmad Shah, director tourism Kashmir.

With travel advisories issued by a few countries against travelling in Kashmir, tourism in the state was adversely affected. But with the best romantic destination title, hopes are high that it may change the picture of tourism in Jammu & Kashmir for the better. What are your thoughts on travel in Jammu & Kashmir? Will you be visiting Jammu & Kashmir this summer?
