Nanda said he will personally monitor the water availability, accomodation arrangements, langer facilities right from Reasi to Kousar Nag.
Efforts will be made to promote the Kounsar Nag as tourist destination, Nanda said.
He asked civil administration to chalk out a comprehensive strategy to popularize the spot by erecting hoardings at prominent locations, so that pilgrims after visiting the cave shrine of Vaishno Devi here could be diverted to such locations.
The Kousar Nag Yatra along with historical Charri Mubarak was organized successfully in the past due to which the popularity and awareness about Reasi-Chassana route gained huge momentum and a lot of public hailing from different parts of the State expressed willingness to join Kousar Nag Yatra this year. Kousar Nag is one of the highest altitude springs of Kashmir situated at 30 km from Aharbal.
