Good news for explorers and individuals of Uttarakhand too! The government of Uttarakhand has decided to develop 13 new tourist destinations to increase tourism in the state. Trivendra Rawat, Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, has been fairly active in searching for new tourist destinations in the state as per a campaign.
The backing for the project will be offered by a Shanghai-based New Development Bank which has decided to offer financial assistance of INR 1,200 crore to the government of Uttarakhand. Also, the central government has given the authorizations for loans.
Now, the Uttarakhand government under its ’13 district-13 destination ‘scheme has qualified 13 new places for the growth of new tourist hotspots. Under this project, one district will get one new tourist attraction.
As per reports, the state government will soon confirm an official agreement with the Shanghai-based bank if everything goes fine. The work will begin only after the official agreement is done at these 13 spots.
Dilip Javalkar, Information and Civil Aviation Secretary, in a ceremony informed that the helicopter facility between Chinyalisaur and Gauchar will start this month from Dehradun.
As of now, the administration is busy making a budget to grow new tourist destinations. Seeing the geographical position of Uttarakhand, a lot of importance is being given to the expansion of new airstrips which will help advance air connectivity and increase tourism in the state of Uttarakhand. As of now, new airstrip creations at Chaukhutia, Srinagar and Pabo are under consideration along with an expansion of Pantnagar Airport.
