Srinagar: Around 1.62 crore tourists visited Jammu and Kashmir so far this year, an official said on Thursday.

20.5 lakh tourists, including 3.65 lakh Amarnath yatris, visited Kashmir in the first eight months of this year, drawing visitors from across India to the gorgeous and picturesque Valley, PTI reported quoting officials as saying.

The tourist sites like Pahalgam, Gulmarg, and Sonamarg as well as all hotels and guesthouses in Srinagar experienced 100 percent occupancy.
