UttarakhandUttarakhand Government is advised by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) to develop the mountain state’s tourism destinations on the lines of Switzerland. This north Indian state is dotted with many waterfalls,mountains and the rivers.



ASSOCHAM has also suggested that the Uttarakhand government should frame a policy on adventure tourism thereby roping in experts and prepare a master plan after conducting surveys in this regard.




The river rafting and other water-based adventure activities are possible in many rivers. The trekking, rock climbing, camping in hills and others can bring the dividends in form of increased tourist in-flow and more employment opportunities in the tourism sector.




According to Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, there was a decline of about 26 per cent and about 22 per cent in Indian and foreign tourist arrival in Uttarakhand after the devastating flash floods of June 2013. The flood triggered the intense rainfall which swept away the agricultural fields, bridges, buildings, dams, livestock, people, roads, entire towns and villages of Uttarakhand.




However, the process of rehabilitation and rebuilding of Uttarakhand has been going on war footing at a firm pace with participation of all the stakeholders from public and private sectors evidently as Indian and foreign tourist arrival grew by over 10 per cent and four per cent in 2014.




While in the year 2015, Uttarakhand has registered a growth of over two per cent and about eight per cent in national and foreign tourist arrival.




Uttarakhand is world-renowned for the presence of pilgrimage destinations, temples and spiritualism. But according to Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, Uttarkhand must now also focus on attracting different types of tourists. This will help to promote the rich cultural heritage of Uttarakhand.
