Tiger Hill In Kargil To Be Developed As Tourist Destination

5 July 2009

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department wants to promote Tiger Hill and Tololing as tourist destinations. Plans are in pipeline to develop infrastructural facilities in Drass, which was the main epicentre for the Kargil war. The ministry plans to set up hotels along the national highway connecting Srinagar and Leh from where Tiger Hill can be viewed. Local hotel owners and shopkeepers have welcomed the government’s proposal and are optimistic that tourism will pick up once Tiger Hill and Tololing are opened for tourists.
