]], disputed by [[Pakistan]].

British India's princely state of Jammu and Kashmir is now divided between India and [[Pakistan]]. India claims the entire area of the former state, whereas Pakistan regards the same area as "territory in dispute" awaiting a plebiscite. While some Kashmiris hope for an independent and unified [[Kashmir]], the majority seem to simply want peace. It is a mountainous region of great beauty and diversity offering much in the way of outdoor activities and sights for the tourist. The unrest had pretty much completely shut down what was once a thriving tourist industry in [[Kashmir]], and it’s now only starting to make a slow comeback. As a rule of thumb, the western area remains unsafe, while the eastern area ([[Ladakh]]) is fine - see "Stay safe" below. Today, Jammu and Kashmir
remains the only Muslim-majority state in India.
The inhabitants of J&K belong to three religions, with Kashmir being mainly Muslim, Jammu being mainly Hindu and the Ladakhis divided almost equally between Buddhists and Muslims.

About half a million indian tourists and 40, 000 foreign tourists visited Kashmir in 2009. In a bid to boost tourism, the central and state governments hosted Kashmir tourism festivals in Dubai and Britain (Oct 2009) and in other regions of the asian subcontinent
far removed from the tension and can be considered totally safe.
