Eco-friendly vehicles for tourists to ride around Mansar Lake

Jammu:

Tourists will now be able to enjoy a ride around the Mansar lake in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district on battery-operated cars, officials said.

Three battery-operated cars has been introduced by the state Wildlife Protection Department as part of its eco-tourism promotion campaign and ensuring a healthy environment at the most-visited tourist place in the Jammu region, the officials said.

The department has procured the eco-friendly vehicles that will keep a check on carbon footprints and allow the tourists to enjoy a ride around the lake, which is, otherwise, very difficult because of its long distance.

The initiative would surely go a long way in boosting the tourism at this important tourist destination in Jammu division, K Vijay Kumar, the adviser to Governor Satya Pal Malik, said, while inaugurating the vehicles.
