Rain impacts hotel occupancy rates in Himachal

Published on : Wednesday, July 14, 2021

In the past few weeks, Himachal Pradesh has been witnessing a heavy influx of visitors after COVID curbs were relaxed in the state due to a dip in cases. However, due to sudden downpour creating flash floods and landslides at several places, there has been a dip of 35% in the number of visitors to the hill state.


The inflow of visitors in the state was such that that the Center had to caution the Himachal Pradesh government to make sure that the visitors respected Covid-appropriate behavior. Social media was abuzz with pictures of people violating the Covid-appropriate norms.


“Occupancy in hotels is now dropping as are the bookings for the future, mainly because of the rain. There was a lot of tourist rush from North India. We are hopeful that the weather will be pleasant in the plains too after the rains there,” said the state tourism director Amit Kashyap.
