Tourism industry in the district is still in its infant state. Given that agriculture forms the primary occupation of the district, it has huge potential of developing tourism industry because of presence of pilgrimage sites like Machail mata, Hudh Mata, Sarthal Mata also other tourism attractions like Sinthan Top, Paddar – Machail area and various other tourism spots in the far off blocks like Warwan, Marwan and Padder. This would not only increase the employment opportunity in the district but also increase the gross domestic product of the district.
