Jammu-Kashmir open for tourists from October 10

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik directed for lifting of an over two-month-old advisory, which asked tourists to leave the valley. The governor directed that the Home Department's advisory asking tourists to leave the Valley be lifted immediately. This will be done with effect from October 10,” an official spokesman said.

The state administration on August 2 had issued a security advisory asking Amarnath pilgrims and tourists to leave Kashmir as soon as possible, citing terror threat in the Valley.
