Uttarakhand Chief Minister Puskar Singh Dhamisaid that he is expecting a boom in the Char DhamYatra this season and urged all stakeholders to be prepared for a record footfall this season.
The Chief Minister addressed the inaugural Uttarakhand Tourism and Hospitality Conference 2022 held by the Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board in Dehradun. The conference had the launch of short commercial films like “ApnateyHaiDilKholKe”. The films by UTDB are based on themes of overall tourism, wellness tourism and homestays and are meant to promote tourism in Uttarakhand.
Dhami said that interest in Char Dhamis now back after two years of pandemic standstill and pilgrims and tourists are expected to visit in large numbers. “Last two years, Char Dham was not smooth due to pandemic and the subsequent restrictions due to it. But now this year we are expecting a record footfall,” said Dhami.
Referring to better connectivity, Chief Minister said that the day is not far when travel time between Delhi and Dehradun will be just two hours. “Elevated road is coming up that will provide faster and smoother connectivity between Delhi and Dehradun, and people would then prefer travelling by road than taking a flight,” he added.
Uttarakhand Tourism Minister SatpalMaharajhighlighted the promotion of caravan and camping tourism. “It’s like “Room on Wheels”. Our state has lot of opportunities on that count. What we need is to develop camp ground with toilets and cafeteria on it,” Maharaj said.
Maharaj also stressed the importance of winter tourism in addition to Char DhamYatra.
