The week-long historical Kousar Nag Yatra along with Charri Mubarak was flagged off from Reasi early on Tuesday morning with traditional fervour and gaiety by Reasi MLA Ajay Nanda.
Nanda said he will personally monitor all required arrangements, including langer facilities, right from Reasi to Kousar Nag.
He further added that efforts would be made to promote Kounsar Nag as tourist destination. He asked civil administration to chalk out a comprehensive strategy to popularise the spot by erecting hoardings at prominent locations, so that pilgrims after visiting the cave shrine of Vaishno Devi may also visit such locations.
The Kousar Nag Yatra along with historical Charri Mubarak was organised successfully in the past due to which the popularity and awareness about the Reasi-Chassana route got huge popularity and lots of public from different parts of the state expressed their willingness to join the Kousar Nag Yatra this year.
Kousar Nag is one of the highest altitude springs in Kashmir situated at 30 km from Aharbal. The spring shimmers with fresh, crystal clear glacial waters and covers an area of five km in length and two-and-half kilometres in breadth.
