The increase in corona virus cases in the deadly second wave in India has impacted the travel and tourism sector significantly. The most popular travel destinations like Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand were forced to shut their borders from April this year due to the alarming COVID situation in the country.
Stringent lockdowns and COVID19-related restrictions were imposed in both the states due to the sudden surge in the corona virus cases in India. Both states gather majority of their revenues from the tourism sector; hence, businesses in Himachal and Uttarakhand also faced financial hurdles.
However, good news is that now tourists from Delhi and NCR can again be seen flocking to the hills with the number of COVID cases decreasing in most states of the country and the nationwide vaccination drive gone up.
While the restrictions in Himachal Pradesh have relaxed slightly, Uttarakhand is still under stringent COVID-related rules and regulations.
