Telangana people start venturing out to places near and far

 Thursday, March 11, 2021 


After remaining locked at home for majority of the year before amid the Covid-19 panic and lockdowns, the people of Telangana have resumed venturing to places near and far, wearing their tourist hats.

The state tourism department has said that more and more people are visiting tourism and recreation spots in the past couple of months.

Currently, visitor numbers in these locations witnessed about 30 per cent increase compared to the pre-Covid-19 times. Almost all of these comprised people from within Telangana.

“We are seeing some 60 to 70 per cent occupancy at our hotels and other boarding facilities now,” said an official.

While facilities like Lumbini Park and boat rides on Hussainsagar are drawing crowds again, visitor numbers to other tourism spots in the state have also gone up. The Warangal sector Laknavarm, Ramappa temple and lake, Tadvai, Malur and Medaram have been witnessing more visitors. In the Mahbubnagar sector, Somasila is a popular spot and there are locations on the way to Srisailam in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh, across Krishna River.

There is high demand for spots with water bodies and water sports. The Kuntala waterfalls at Adilabad, the Lower Manair Dam in Karimnagar and the Bogatha waterfalls at Yettur are quite popular visits. These places invite large numbers of enquiries about their facilities.

Since the start of summer, which is usually a good season for Indian tour operators, the tourism department is focusing on giving tourism an impetus. Last summer, it spelled a disaster for tourism.

Lumbini Park, adjacent to Hussainsagar Lake, which witnessed around 10,000 visitors on weekends before Covid-19, is now recording up to 13,000 visitors on Sundays and other holidays.
