Very few people have set their eyes on the Line of Control and the adjoining areas in Kashmir. These sensitive places have been largely off-limits due to the Borders and the local political situations. But the government is slowly opening these areas for tourism. JK Tourism has built guest houses so that people can enjoy the beauty of these hitherto unseen places for most. You can now also enjoy chai pe charcha along LoC at this new cafe at Kashmir’s Uri by the Indian Army. The newly opened cafeteria near Kaman Aman Setu is the last post of the Indian Army of LoC in Kashmir.
Visitors Can Experience How Things Are On The Ground
Till a few months back, no one would have dreamt of enjoying a warm cup of tea at Uri when India and Pakistan exchanged shells and mortars. But today, the Indian Army has thrown open a full-fledged cafeteria to give visitors a chance to experience how things are on the ground. The opening of the cafe comes at a time when India-Pakistan relations peaceful, particularly after the ceasefire agreement announced by two armies.

Apart from Uri, Kupwara is another place that deserves your attention. It is home to beautiful valleys such as the Lolab valley and the largest Alpine Valley in Kashmir, the Bangus Valley. At Kupwara, you can actually walk along the Kishenganga River and see activities across the border in Pakistan-occupied Kasmir. Fascinating, isn’t it?
