Week long historical Kousar Nag Yatra along with Charri Mubarak was flagged off from Reasi early
this morning with traditional fervor and gaiety by MLA Reasi Mr Ajay Nanda.
Speaking on the occasion, Nanda said he will personally monitor the water availability, stay arrangements, langer
facilities right from Reasi to Kousar Nag. He further added that efforts would be made to promote the Kounsar Nag as
tourist destination. He asked civil administration to chalk out a comprehensive strategy to popularize the spot by
erecting hoardings at prominent locations, so that pilgrims after visiting the cave shrine of Vaishno Devi here could be
diverted to such locations.
The Kousar Nag Yatra alongwith historical Charri Mubarak was organized successfully in the past due to which the
popularity and awareness about Reasi-Chassana routegained huge momentum and a lot of public hailing from
different parts of the State expressed willingness to join Kousar Nag Yatra this year. Kousar Nag is one of the
highest altitude springs of Kashmir situated at 30 km from Aharbal. The spring shimmers with fresh, crystal clear
glacial waters and covers an area of 5 km in length and two and half kilometers in breadth.
