Sun Tourism is fast becoming a fad in Himachal Pradesh

 Friday, January 27, 2023 


Now most of the visitors prefer not just snow but also the sun in Himachal Pradesh. And with this, ‘sun tourism’ is fast becoming a fad now in the state, reports The hospitality industry stakeholders are getting more demands from many holidaymakers to get rooms with sun rise in the balcony, especially during the winters.

The online portal further noted that those related to the tourism industry are now trying to attract more tourists by saying that if they want to escape the dense fog and cold in the plains, move to the hills and bask in the mellow sunshine. It is warm and sunny here.

As per reports, a meeting used to be organised every year by the local administration before the onset of winter to review measures and assign duties to handle situations of emergency in case of heavy snow.

However, this meeting has become just a mere ritual for the past several decades, as admitted by some of the officials.

This change in climate, as reported by the online portal, is alarming for Himachal Pradesh as the state’s economy is highly dependent on tourism.

Although scientists are of the view that the overall warming trend should not have any effect on local weather on such short-time scales as per current models.

If reports of Shimla’s meteorological office are to go by, popular tourist destinations including Kasauli, Shimla, Dharamshala, Narkanda, Palampur, Manali, Chamba and Dalhousie have been experiencing sunny days for the past few days.

On the other hand, Gulaba, situated around 20 km from Manali, is currently under a thick blanket of snow, and tons of visitors are coming every day to enjoy skiing, snow scooter rides, and other activities.
