The government of Jammu and Kashmir and the Department of Tourism have opened various sites close to the LOC for tourists and visitors after several tranquil years along the LOC. In addition to revealing their natural beauty, the opening up of the areas, including Keran, Gurez, Tangdhar, Machil, and Bangus, has given visitors a rare chance to see a border separating two countries.

These gorgeous regions in North Kashmir that are near the Line of Control (LoC) are quickly becoming the new frontiers for tourism. These currently unreachable gems, hidden within the high mountain ranges, have attracted the attention of both domestic and foreign travellers.

Panorama views of snow-covered peaks, meandering rivers, and bright alpine flora welcome visitors and create an atmosphere of peace. These places become a photographer’s and traveller’s heaven as the sun spreads its golden rays across the countryside.

But these areas’ fascination extends beyond the splendour of their natural surroundings. The historical and geopolitical significance of being so close to the LoC captivates tourists. Despite being a point of separation, the boundary itself is intriguing.

The thought of being right on the border between two countries fascinates visitors. As visitors consider the complexities and the tales that this border has witnessed throughout the years, their curiosity is laced with a sense of introspection.

The local economy has been boosted by the addition of Keran, Gurez, Tangdhar, Machil, and Bangus to the list of new tourist sites. Small-scale companies that provide lodging, dining, and transportation have sprung up, providing a variety of options for every price range.
