Water sports in Kashmir gets big boost with modernised centre

The administration of Jammu and Kashmir is upgrading the infrastructure of water sports in Srinagar with an aim to promote adventure sports in the Valley. With some of world's famous water bodies including Dal Lake and Nigeen Lake, Kashmir has tremendous potential to boost water sports in the region. However, lack of facilities including weak infrastructure was not boding well for energetic players. But with the upgradation of the water sports center located in Dal Lake, aspiring players can now now hone their skills with world class equipments including boats and jetties. More importantly, the long pending demand of a high tech boat shed has also been met.
