Uttarakhand is known as the ‘Land of Gods’ owing to the scenic natural beauty and the temples that this place is blessed with. The beauty of the Kumaon region is heavenly, and hence it has a lot of potential in terms of tourism. Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has made an announcement that the state will soon develop tourist destinations in the Kumaon region. The government already has many plans in mind for the same.
Tourist Destinations To Be Developed In The Kumaon Region
The Kumaon region is situated beautifully between Uttar Pradesh in the south, Tibet in the north, the Garhwal region in the west, and Nepal in the east. The government is already planning to broaden the roads and come up with better road connectivity.
Uttarakhand’s CM also announced that they are already working on the construction of a parking area in Nainital’s Kainchi Dham. This place is famous for devotees across the world lining up for the Baba Neem Karoli temple.
The circuit will be developed in such a manner that people can easily visit various locations all at once. According to the Tourism Minister, Satpal Maharaj, the department has already identified destinations in the region.
Theme Based Work Is Under Progress
The department recently identified new destinations in about six districts in the Kumaon region. Under the government project, “13 districts, 13 new tourist destinations”, the government had already identified some destinations. Kausani in Bageshwar, Muketeshwar in Nainital, Parag Farm in Udham Singh Nagar, Katarmal in Almora, Munisyari in Pithoragarh district, and Lohaghat in Champawat are the ones identified.
Satpal said that the work on these destinations is theme based and in progress. The government is coming up with tea tourism for Kausani, laser tourism for Munsiyari, and a lot more in the pipeline.
The Kumaon region in Uttarakhand includes places like Almora, Munsiyari, Ranikhet, Nainital, Mukteshwar, and Bageshwar. The Manaskhand Circuit is the connection between Uttarakhand and Nepal’s Far Western Provinces. This will encourage all the tourists visiting Uttarakhand to visit and experience the beauty of Nepal.
