Presidents Message

Travel Agents Association of Kashmir (TAAK) is pleased to bring out the 10th edition of Members Directory. The response and feedback from our patrons to our previous edition has been extremely positive which has encouraged us to add new information about the tourist attractions of J&K. I am sure it will facilitate Travel Agents, Tour operators, Adventure lovers, Educational Institutions, Corporate sector, MICE organizers and Tourists to plan a visit to this fascinating State. TAAK fondly remembers our Past President Lt. Manzoor Sidiq, whose untimely demise left a deep void within TAAK, but his guidance, valuable services to the promotion of Tourism in our State will always remain close to our hearts. We sincerely value his contribution which helped us in promoting the Tourism scenario to J&K State. May his soul rest in peace. My Sincere thanks to Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti, Mr. Tasaquq Mufti Minister of Tourism(J&K), Secretary Tourism Mr. Sarmand Hafeez (IAS) and Director Tourism, Kashmir Mr. Mehmood A Shah who are relentlessly working for the betterment of Tourism to our State.
