Tourism based web portal in Himachal to ensure safety of tourists

 Saturday, February 4, 2023 


The Himachal Pradesh government is developing a web portal which will enable tourists to book various tourism-related services online. This will ensure safety of tourists as only authenticated operators and service providers will be listed on the portal. It will also prevent fleecing by service providers.

The visitors will be able to book hotels, trekking, rafting, paragliding and other tourism-related activities and pay for these online.

In this regard, a meeting was held on Monday by the Tourism Department in the district of Kullu under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner (DC) Ashutosh Garg. The meeting was also attended by District Tourism Development Officer (DTDO) Sunayna Sharma and presidents of all organisations related to the tourism industry.

Natish Kumar and Harish Shandilya from Map My India company, selected by the state government for making the web portal, gave details about loading information, login and booking of adventure sports and hotels on the web portal.

They said that district-wise information of the entire state would be available on the portal. The portal would also display photographs of activities, sites and heritage of districts.

The Kullu DC said QR codes of all paragliding operators, rafters, trekking operators, hotels and other adventure activities would also be available on the web portal so that tourists could book tourism-related activities at their own convenience.

He said, “There are paragliding sites at many places in Kullu district. Along with the road map of these sites on the portal, there should also be geo-tagging of parking, petrol stations and toilets constructed at various places.”

The DC said officials would meet again to discuss changes required on the portal that were to be made by the Tourism Department.
