Srinagar, Nov 23 (ANI): Tourists flock to Kashmir valley during the autumn season to enjoy the beauty of nature as the valley turns into a palette of gold with chinar trees in full bloom.

Tourist said they enjoyed visiting the valley during this time as the weather is not too cold. The tourism industry is trying to recover after the floods struck the state last year. Local residents urged the central government to encourage more tourists to visit the valley during autumn. Autumn season starts in the valley from mid-September till mid-December.
