MP govt plans to develop six new tourism destinations

 Wednesday, February 22, 2023 


In a bid to offer experiential, adventure and recreational tourism to boost tourism economy, Madhya Pradesh government is planning to develop at least six new tourism destinations in the state.

The Madhya Pradesh Tourism Board has chosen Kuno in Sheopur district, Orchha, Ater in Bhind district, Tamia in Chhindawara district, Chanderi, Bargi dam in Jabalpur, to make tent cities and develop water and air sports, carnivals and other recreational activities for tourists. Earlier, After Mandu, Hanuwantiya and Gandhi Sagar were selected for the same purpose.

The Times News Network quoted Madhya Pradesh Tourism Board additional managing director Vivek Shrotriya as saying, “Many of these places do not have adequate accommodation or tourist activities despite being a famous tourist spot. Tourist footfall in Kuno is expected to increase in coming years.

Annual festivals at three locations Mandu, Hanuwantiya and Gandhi Sagar were quite a success and now we plan to replicate the same model at six destinations.

Shrotriya said, “The plan is to offer a full-fledged tourism package to tourists for a long stay and promote our state.”

With these new destinations, the state will have nine destinations that will offer annual festivals and adventure activities to tourists.

The board has invited
Tenders have been invited from interested parties by the Tourism Board to conduct annual festivals and suitable experiential, adventure and recreational activities at these locations for a period of 10 years.

The tourism department has proposed that the government may conduct annual festivals for five days in these destinations, while other adventure activities and tent stay will continue for 2-3 months.

This year, the state government kicked off first edition of the floating festival at Gandhi Sagar.

“We anticipate a jump in tourists footfall from across the country to MP by offering diverse tourist activities. This will give a fillip to the state’s economy and generate local employment,” said Shrotriya.
