Telangana aiming to become a destination offering multiple attractions

 Saturday, February 8, 2020 


Ecotourism, tribal circuits, waterfalls and cruise services, heritage and pilgrimage – there are various destinations offering all these in Telangana, and that too in abundance! After medical tourism, the Telangana government is now implementing a multi-pronged strategy for tourism development in the State, covering diverse aspects and locations.


Right from pilgrimage to urban forest parks, waterfalls to heritage tourism, all sectors would be developed focusing on providing good amenities to tourists for comfortable stay.


In the last couple of years, about 35 hotels offering 1,200 rooms, eight wayside amenities, two restaurants, 42 buses, 89 boats, and light and sound shows were introduced at different locations in Telangana by the state tourism department.


The road-cum-river cruise tours, covering Hyderabad-Somasila-Srisailam-Hyderabad and Hyderabad-Nagarjunasagar-Srisailam-Hyderabad, are already attracting good response from tourists. These trips are operated on weekends, offering a good two-day tourism package. Tourists are also taken to the Srisailam Dam site and Farahabad on the way.


Boating service in Pedda Cheruvu, Mahabubnagar, Kotilingala, Pakala Cheruvu, Ramappa Cheruvu, Dubbaka Cheruvu and others are popular among tourists.


Keeping in mind the recreation facilities for residents in urban areas, urban forest parks and suspension bridges are being developed in different water bodies. Construction of suspension bridges at Komati Cheruvu, Siddipet and Laknawaram Lake has attracted more footfalls at these locations, along with opening up more recreation options for residents.


In the last couple of years, about Rs. 100 crore was spent on developing basic infrastructure and other facilities at different tourist locations in Telangana. Works at an estimated cost of Rs. 100 crore are under progress, and more works worth Rs. 300 crore are proposed to be taken up in the next couple of years.


Besides medical tourism, promotion of temple tourism, heritage tourism and ecotourism are being focused.
