Published on : Monday, December 6, 2021

In spite of having magnificent tourist spots including fort complex, Tatipudi reservoir, Govindapuram and Chintapalle beaches, Champavathi river, temples, waterfalls and others, Vizianagaram district fails to attract tourists due to lack of amenities includingappropriate transportation facilities.


Tourists from Odisha and West Bengal desireto visit Vizag city and Agency areas like Lambasingi, Araku Valley, Tajangi and others. They are not much interested in visiting Vizianagaram district.


“Apart from the scenic spots, the district has a potential for pilgrimage tourism. However, the Ramatheertham, Pydithallamma temple, Govindapuram, Bobbili guest house, and Venkanna temple at Thotapalli should be developed by providing basic amenities,” said K Siva Kumar, a resident of Vizag city.


District tourism officer, Chandrasekhar Varma, said that they have identified three waterfalls –Sikaparuvu, Dandigam and Kurukutti under Salurmandalto have amenities for visitors. “We will send a proposal to the government for funds for this purpose,” Varmaadded.


Regardingrecommencement of boating at Tatipudi reservoir, Varma said that boat drivers need to undergo training and officials from Kakinada port will visit the reservoir to examine the equipment and others facilities in the place before giving go-ahead to operate the services.
