I’m away from Kashmir on some travel, but this week I wanted to share about a helpful resource for cultural heritage tourism in Kashmir.
The Jammu and Kashmir Chapter of INTACH (Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage) is doing excellent work at promoting and preserving cultural heritage in Kashmir. I encourage you to check out their website for more info at www.heritageofkashmir.org.
Of particular interest is the cultural heritage walks they have developed for Srinagar. They have 9 walks listed, complete with a Google Earth photo showing the route for the walk. Each walk takes you past several important heritage sites in the city. We hope to begin promoting these walks and offering guided tours for them starting in 2010.
