Kangra Hits A New Record In Number of Tourists

htwDharamshala : Kangra has witnessed a tourist influx of about 15.7 lakh in first six months of this year. This is the highest tourist influx for the same period for last four years. So far 14.9 lakh Indian and 73,754 foreign tourists have visited this tourist corner of the state. According to the statistics from Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC), this year Kangra has witnessed 8.88% hike in Indian and 13.68% in the foreign visitors when compared to the first six months of 2016. In fact Kangra holds third spot after Kullu and Shimla in tourists coming here every year. There has been a continuous rise in number of visitors for last four years in Kangra.  Being the land of temples like Masroor monolithic rock cut temple, Brajeshwari devi temple, Jawala ji temple, Bhagsunath temple and Dalai Lama monastery, it also mesmerizes the visitors with spots like Indrahar Pass, Triund, Snowline, Dauladhar National Park, Bhagsunag waterfall and Kangra fort. The tourism department is keen in making it a better place to visit and is continuously making efforts to ensure better facilities to the tourists. According to Sweety Sharma, Tourist Information Officer (TIO), Kangra, there has been a continuous effort to increase tourism in the district. Projects like construction of parking facility near DC office, Dharamshala and Mcleodganj, renovation of Dal lake and war memorial, Dharamshala are being undertaken by Tourism Department to ensure best services to the tourist coming from every corner of the world. Compared to other states of the country, the beauty of Dev Bhoomi  attracts a huge bunch of visitors every year. Also with ongoing issues of security in Jammu and Kashmir due to terrorism and continuous unrest over there since last few years, a lot of tourists are diverted to Himachal Pradesh making it more preferable for the visitors and gives more business opportunities to the hosts. Now along with six more months left and at the same time considering the rate of visitors coming so far, it is very much sure that this year is going to be the best year of tourism for Kangra.
