Unfortunately this whole valley becomes prey of political parties and always remain neglected by central / state government on each and every patterns of development.
Kishtwar district , known as saffron valley having so many natural beauties among which Chowgan is historic tourist destination covered with evergreen trees and Chinar that everyone imagine that ALMIGHTY built this by his own hands .
As we look over whole chenab valley and naturally decorated tourist destination , that attracts tourists towards their beauties.
Bunjwah , A neglected region of chenab valley in Kishtwar district having status of Tehsil Headquarter and having its boundaries with Himachal Pardesh , Padder and Bhalessa and river Kali Naag is having its origin in Bunjwah , flowing toward Dunadi Thathri and forms the Chenab called as Chandra Bhaga.
Bunjwah is naturally decorated region like Bhaderwah and its beauties can be compared with Sonamarg , Gulmarg , Patnitop and other famous tourist destinations in state Jammu and Kashmir .
This naturally decorated region of chenab valley always becomes prey of politics as noone representative pay heed toward its development .
As it is having so many natural beauties like rivers , springs , medows and evergreen forests . In Bunjwah a famous picnic spot popularly known as ”DEVIGOAL” in village Patnazi 7km away from Tehsil Headquarter Bunjwah is naturally decorated place in Bunjwah that is covered with green trees of trees of deodar , kail , fur , Himalyan mountains
and many more . A water spring situated in the middle of DEVIGOAL Bunjwah had made its own valve and shine in this remote region . This famous picnic spot remain untouched with road connectivity and tourism department failed in bringing it on tourism map Unfortunately this region is always neglected by district administration / state government as the only link road known as Dunadi Bunjwah , KewaPull Kither road is in worse condition from last few decades . The work over Dunadi Bunjwah road was started in 1977 till Glody that was later executed in 2002 from Glody to Binoon and is under construction on name of KewaPull Kither road that is not completed till day .
The road length is only 33km from Thathri to Patnazi and near about 40 years have been passed and the concerned departments ( PMGSY , JKPCC , R&B ) had failed to blacktop Dunadi Bunjwah KewaPull Kither road road till days where passengers are removing slides , stones and pushing vehicles to reaches their destinations .
Government conserding roads as backbone of development . It is time to think how peoples are residing in this remote region of kishtwar in 21st century .
Public of Bunjwah seeks personal intervention of Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti to personally intervene in this matter and direct concerned authorities in bringing Devigoal Bunjwah under tourism sector and construct tourists huts and toilets at Devigoal an an earliest so as Bunjwah shall became best tourist destination in chenab valley.
