Uttarakhand poised to get 13 new tourist destinations


The government of Uttarakhand has agreed to develop 13 new tourist destinations to boost tourism in the state. The funding for the project will be provided by a Shanghai-based New Development Bank which has agreed to offer financial assistance of INR 1200 crore to the government of Uttarakhand. Also, the central government has given the permissions for loans.

The state government has drawn up the ’13 district-13 destination ‘scheme to develop new tourist spots beyond the existing tourist destinations of Uttarakhand. Under this project, one district will get one new tourist attraction.
As per reports, the state government will soon finalise a formal agreement with the Shanghai-based bank if everything goes fine. The work will begin only after the formal agreement is done at these 13 spots.

As of now the government is busy making a budget to develop new tourist destinations. Considering the geographical location of Uttarakhand, a lot of importance is being given to the development of new airstrips which will help improve air connectivity and boost tourism in the state of Uttarakhand
