Hospitality sector crumbles in Kashmir as India battles second wave of pandemic

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], May 5 (ANI): The second wave of COVID-19 has badly hit tourism in Kashmir valley.

According to the local tourist operators, tourism season gradually picked up from October last year. Heavy snowfall in the last winter attracted thousands of tourists in Kashmir especially in Gulmarg where the grand sports event ‘Khelo India’ was organized by the government. The opening of the Tulip Garden in March this year further catalyzed the influx of visitors.

Speaking to ANI, Rauf Tramboo, President, Adventure Tour Operators Association of Kashmir, said, “We could see a ray of hope in November-December last year as tourists were arriving. All the stakeholders were happy. From January to March there was so much demand for accommodation in Gulmarg. Till April bookings were intact and the industry was in a comfortable position.”

“The tourism industry is considered the backbone of the economy and has a huge potential to generate employment for thousands of people. We expected good footfall of tourists in the coming months but the second wave of COVID infections in the country has altered the situation. All the stakeholders including hoteliers, houseboat owners, travel agents, shikara owners and others are worried in the valley due to ninety per cent cancellation of bookings. Only those tourists who had already made their bookings for the month of April came in small numbers,” he added.

Ratna, a tourist, told ANI that the valley is more beautiful than she expected but she could not enjoy it fully as there was a fear in her mind regarding COVID-19.

“The valley is beautiful. But I was scared due to COVID-19. Everywhere COVID rules are being followed. There was sanitization facility everywhere,” Ratna said.

“After October-November last year there was good traffic of tourists. There was even a shortage of accommodation due to high tourist footfall. COVID protocols and SOPs are being followed strictly followed here be it hotels and other places. After the second COVID wave, tourist footfall reduced by almost 90 per cent,” Zulifkar, a travel agent, told ANI.

“Tourists were coming after snowfall in December. But in April, things started to change due to upsurge in COVID cases in the country,” said Bilal Ahmad, a houseboat owner. (ANI)

Uttarakhand Goverment to repair 150 Year Old Bridge for Tourist at Nelong Valley

The picturesque Nelong Valley near the India-China border, which was closed for civilians after the 1962 war, has been opened for tourists.

The valley, 45 km ahead of the border, falls under the Gangotri National Park in Uttarkashi district.

“Six vehicles will carry tourists from Bhairavghati to Nelong every day, but no one will be allowed to stay overnight within the 25-km area between Bhairavghati and Nelong,” Shravan Kumar, Deputy Director, Gangotri National Park, said.

Foreigners are not allowed in the valley.

At 11,600 feet, the valley is a cold desert, home to the snow leopard and the Himalayan blue sheep and offering a view of the Tibetan Plateau.

“Tourists visiting the valley will see the wooden bridge once used for trade between India and China,” said Tilak Soni, an Uttarkashi-based mountaineer. Mr Soni said that geographically the valley looked like a replica of Tibet and also offered a view of the Tibetan plateau.

After the 1962 war, villagers were shifted out of the valley and Indo-Tibetan Border Police checkpoints were set up in the villages.

More then 70 Lakh devotees Participated In Kumbh Mela

Dehradun/Rishikesh: Seventy lakh devotees participated in Haridwar’s Kumbh Mela, the mammoth religious congregation which ended Friday after triggering a scare that it might have acted as a coronavirus “super-spreader”.
Despite the huge number of people gathering around Haridwar to take a dip in the holy Ganga, the 2021 event was a comparatively modest event — reduced to just one month and scaled down midway due to the raging pandemic.

Held over three months in normal circumstances, the Kumbh Mela this time formally begun as late as April 1 due to concerns over COVID-19.

About 2,600 devotees tested positive out of the nearly two lakh tests conducted by medical personnel during the mela.

Three shahi snans took place during the event on April 12, 14 and 27, the last one being reduced to a largely symbolic event.

Haridwar’s Chief Medical Officer SK Jha said the Kumbh was a big challenge considering its potential to fuel the surge of coronavirus.

Medical officer for Kumbh Arjun Singh Sengar said, “The situation was challenging for us as the crowd, though relatively smaller this time was big enough to violate the norms of social distancing.”

“The seers were initially reluctant to go for tests but they relented after the second shahi snan on April 14,” he said.

“With the help of healthcare personnel brought from Uttar Pradesh, we conducted a total of 1,900,83 tests, out of which 2642 reported positive,” he said.

The “scaling down” is said to be the first in the history of the mela, which is held once every twelve years in Haridwar.

The crowds began petering out after an appeal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the seers to keep their representation in Kumbh symbolic.

The Joona Akhada, the largest among the sects which attend the mela, was the first to respond to PM Modi’s appeal, followed by several other akhadas which withdrew from the event.

Ordinary devotees then followed their example.

Mela organisers claim that the event, among the largest religious gatherings on earth, passed off without any serious untoward incident anywhere in the Kumbh Mela Kshetra spread over an area of 641 hectares from Haridwar to Devprayag.

Mela Inspector General Sanjay Gunjyal claimed this to be a “first” since 1912.

“A stampede, a clash or a dispute among seers of different Akhadas marked most of the editions of the event in the past. But this time, despite the extraordinary circumstances arising out of a strong second wave of coronavirus, the Kumbh Mela passed off without any interruption,” he said.

“It is a kind of record,” he told PTI.
