SRINAGAR: An Educational and Motivational Tour to Srinagar comprising of 18 students and two teachers from remote areas of Kupwara was flagged off from Kalaruch in Kupwara district on 06 March 2012. The children visited Srinagar on 06 Mar and 07 March 2012.
The tour was so planned to give an opportunity to gain a first hand insight into the grandeur and beauty of one of the world famous tourist destination. Children visited ‘IBADAT-E-SAHADAT’ Museum alongwith Chashmeshahi, Pari Mahal, Hazrat Bal Dargah and also enjoyed the Shikara Ride at Dal Lake at Srinagar.
The students enjoyed the tour and gained a lot from this new experience. “This tour has not been only of educational value to us but also gave us an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Srinagar,” said one of the students from village Sarkuli. The tour was also well appreciated by the parents of the children and the locals of the area. Such initiatives by Army will go a long way in building the bonding between the Army and Awam.
