Srinagar, Nov. 28 -- Tourist arrivals in winter are set to break all previous records in Kashmir.

Travel agents claimed thatbookings have surged by more than 20 percent during the last few weeks, which indicates a successful winter season for Kashmir tourism.

President Travel Agents Association of Kashmir Rauf Tramboo told The Kashmir Monitor that the winter is all set to break the previous records of arrivals.

"We are getting a good number of queries for December, January, and February. Since Kashmir is famous for its white winter, tourists love to spend their vacations in the valleys of Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Even during autumn, which used to be a lean period of Kashmir tourism, we received a good number of tourists," he said.
