Continuous rains since the second week of August have washed away the achievements made since early this year with the pandemic coming under the impression of control.

The hospitality segment is among the worst affected. However, the stakeholders are optimistic that the persistent rains will end soon and attract tourists back to the city once more.

From a peak of 100% possession in hotels till the Independence Day in August, the bookings have declined 30% or less across majority of hotels, said the President of the Hotel Owners’ Association C. Narayana Gowda.

There are almost 10,000 hotel rooms in Mysuru housing tourists. All of them were booked in the second week of August sparking hopes about resilience in the tourism sector.

Mr. Gowda opined that the start of September enduring through the Dasara is one of the top tourism spells for Mysuru. However, incessant rains through greater part of July and August till the second week of September have significantly impacted travel and tourism.
