Yes, Kashmir is world's best tourist destination because it is the heart of Indian Citizen
Kashmir has it's own beautiful valleys, hills and rivers. On, the one hand there is Pakistan and on the other hand China(Tibet).
Hills like Pir panjal range which have incredibly mind blowing beauty................
River like nubra and lakes like dal, wular lakes are the best tourist destination of India or Kashmir.
Kashmir is dealing with the terrorist forces who are supported by Pakistan but Indian army is very honourable and 3rd best army in the world who is dealing with terrorist forces. about 7 lakh Army men are taking care of the Kashmir.
When india divided Jammu and Kashmir is a different country due to lack of forces
Pakistan attacked and captured lot's of area of Kashmir. on that time Maharaja Hari Singh deal the sign with India and got involved in Indian territory.
Mindblowing Hills and valleys attrats people towards to this.
I hope that this is enough to tell that even after terrorist activities it remains it's best tourist destination in the world.
Than You.....................Please accept the debate.

I agree that Kashmir is one of the best tourist spots in the world. But to say that it is THE best?? Its a bit of a seeping statement, if you ask me. Tourists destinations are mainly based on the tourists. Jammu and Kashmir receives only 10 lakh or only 1 million tourists every year, whereas New York receives over 54 million tourists. If you are basing this on natural beauty... then Italy is definitely a contender, which also receives more than J&K, 47.7 million tourists per year. Now saying that it is the heart of the Indian Citizen is just wrong. If you ask an Indian, which place would you say that your heart was, he will, 9 out 10 times say his hometown rather than J&K. Yes, J&K has mountains, rivers and gardens. But they do not attract the most tourists. Now on the matter of terrorist attacks. New York has received its share of attacks. Even Mumbai has got it share of attacks. Both of which have a higher tourist attraction factor. Now on the beauty factor, J&K has a lot of natural beauty, so does Italy. It also has a world class cuisine which J&K doesn't have. So as far as I can see, there is no BEST tourist spot. Each spot is the best in its own way.

thankyou for accepting the debate challenge
first of all, I would like to tell you a simple story on the beauty of Kashmir
in 17th century when Mughal emperor Jahangir came to Kashmir area and he called this place as beautiful as paradise.
He said that " if paradise is anywhere on the earth, it is here."If there is ever a heaven on earth, its here, its here, its here.
Jammu and Kashmir is divided into 3 areas.
1) Jammu
2)Kashmir
3)Ladakh
Jammu the winter capital, Srinagar the summer capital, Ladakh is the amazing tourist spot where you can find the AMAZING MAGNETIC HILL. ladakh hills attracts tourists.
Gulmarg has rose gardens and a very cool place for skiing. Pahalgam is the starting point of Amarnath Yatra.
The vaishno devi yatra only contributes 400 million indian rupee and it helps people.
Counter terrorist forces and presence of AFSPA act in Kashmir region creates a more attractive and protective area.
the meadow of the gold also known as Sonmarg has mindblowing hills, valleys and very good for skiing.
A lush green valley 15 km from Pahalgam where the movie Betaab(indian movie) was shot in betaab valley.
you said that it is not the heart of indian citizens but I am saying that it is the heart of indian citizens.
If you ask any people in India about the favourite tourist place in India. 9 times out of 10, every people will name the Kashmir.
I have much more for the next round also........ please post arguements

I would agree it is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but "it is the heart of Indian Citizen" is not one of the reasons, I don't think. Also, be careful, because lakh is not an English word.
