Telangana eyes 20-30 pc growth in tourist arrivals, augments facilities


Telangana Tourism expects a 20 percent increase in foreign tourist arrivals and 30 per cent growth in domestic tourist footfall by the end of next year, as compared to pre-COVID level.

Showcasing attractions like the marvellous standstone Ramappa temple of the Kakatiya era, which was recognised last year by UNESCO as a world heritage site, the Pochampally village famed for its hand-woven Ikat saris, authorities are running digital campaigns as well to promote such tourist destinations.

Working towards a significant increase in domestic and foreign tourist arrivals, authorities have augmented facilites to cater to the needs of holidaymakers. Be it facilities in hotels or connectivity issues, authorities have addressed them and the Road-cum river cruise tour are among the appealing offers.

TSTDC, a state government undertaking, has built 54 green tourism hotels and wayside facilities across the state. Sound and light shows are being organised at Golconda and Warangal forts.
