Be it the great deserts of Rajasthan deserts in Jodhpur or the serene beaches of Goa, destination wedding sites presentingcharming scenic locations are a hit among couples today. Going with this trend, the hill state of Himachal Pradesh is also opening itself up, becoming a wedding hotspot by showcasing destination wedding tourism in the mountains.
With properties like the majestic, royal Chail Palace, an all-time favorite tourist destination in Solan district, or the Pinewood in Barog, the T-Bud Palampur or the Apple Blossom in Fagu and half a dozen other premium properties, the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) has started rolling out lucrative packages for destination weddings.
“The response is really marvellous. I have got queries from several places including Jodhpur. This is a new concept we have decided to introduce at select hotels of the HPTDC. Only those hotels have been chosen which have facilities to accommodate multiple guests and offer requisite facilities under one roof,”saidAmitKashyap, MD and Director of HPTDC (Tourism).
Kashyap said that Himachal Pradesh and the hotel sector suffered a huge impact due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The HPTDC itself has run into losses amounting to Rs. 40 -44 crores approximately.
The tourism sector needs new innovations to revive the situation and also bring the HPTDC properties in full business mode.
The Tourism department is also planning to develop and promote Lahaul-Spiti as one of the upcoming tourist destinations of the world, due to the opening of the Rohtang Tunnel at a height of 10,000 feet. Earlier, the valley used to remain off limits for six months due to heavy snow on Rohtang Pass.
