| Sunday | 13th October, 2019
Having missed out on the opportunity to visit the state during the Durga Puja holidays, travellers from West Bengal are now eager to pack their bags and visit the Valley, officials said.
"Even during the restrictions, we were getting lot of queries from interested travellers in Bengal," Haq told PTI.
Anil Panjabi, Chairman (East), Travel Agents' Confederation of India, said that tour operators in Kolkata and other places in West Bengal are now flooded with queries about travel to the Kashmir Valley.
"We are hoping that a large number of tourists from West Bengal will travel to Kashmir now that the restrictions have been withdrawn," Panjabi said.
Haq said the queries from potential travellers mainly revolve around the security situation and connectivity in the Kashmir Valley.
