Tourism beyond Weather, Manali   

A new beginning has been made to promote tourism through the World Bank and a team is exploring rural tourism potential with a view to find new destination near Dharamshala to ease out the pressure in different sectors. Why it happened in Himachal that tourists chose only one destination? Overcrowding at main tourist places doesn’t mean that potential has been tapped fully but because vehicular pressure is increasing due to a lack of planning at these places. Entire Himachal has tourism potential but if possibilities are explored. Pangi Valley has many unexplored areas. Jammu & Kashmir established a Tulip garden to attract tourists. The World Bank can sanction a scheme but its success will depend upon local efforts. Can any tourist destination in Himachal can boast of peaceful environ, adventure and entertainment for which a tourist always strives for? The World Bank can extend monetary assistance but long term planning is must to bring about a change. The state needs to put in efforts to make tourist aware of different aspects in addition to its weather and Manali; otherwise the tourism will always remain stereotype here. Haryana implemented highway tourism to become a role model. At least a dozen state departments, thousands of places and hundreds of villages can change the definition of tourism in Himachal. Tourism can be promoted through local kuhls and marketing of local products through marketing boards and district units to strengthen economy besides other such initiatives. We believe that impact is felt on the beginning stage of every tourist destination. Tourists want cordial atmosphere at Una if one wishes to visit Dharamshala and McLeodganj. Tourism industry can be developed by keeping Shimla, Dharamshala, Manali and Dalhousie destinations in the centre stage. Tourism sector is expanding under the new perspective and aspirations and demand of tourists have also undergone a change. Himachal needs to develop new tourist destination highways to connect new tourist destinations.
