In order to create awareness about the significance of coal mining, Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation and Western Coalfields Limited has entered into an agreement to promote mine tourism.

 
Tourists will get an opportunity to visit coal mines in Bhandewada and Ukani to understand the intricacies involved in coal mining.

 
The Wani-Yavatmal mine tour includes a visit to Bhandewanda mines along with a workshop, in addition to an excursion into the open cast mine in Ukani.

 
Trained and experienced tour guides will brief and educate tourists about the mining processes.

 
Minister of State for Tourism, Madan Yerawar, said, “Mine tourism is a niche segment and we are expanding it further by introducing new mine tourism sites at Wani in Yavatmal to attract a large number of tourists from across the globe. The mine locations in Saoner and Gondegaon are already attracting encouraging tourist footfall.”
