Nothing revitalizes the mind and body as traveling does. Have a look at the weekly happenings in the tourism world from around the globe.

1. The Tamil Nadu state tourism department is trying to change its focus from traditional tourist attractions to the wildlife sector and its related activities. Heritage and religious tourism have always been the focal point for the state. Places like Chennai, Rameshwaram, Madurai, Puducherry, and Mahabalipuram are known for getting maximum tourists due to their religious angle. The government is now concentrating on various national parks like Mukurthi National Park, Guindy National Park, Mudumalai National Park, Anamalai Tiger Reserve, Gulf of Mannar Marine National Park, Agasthyamalai Biosphere Reserve, Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary, Karikili Bird Sanctuary, and Kalakad Wildlife Sanctuary to boost tourism in the state. 

2. The infamous Vizhinjam Lighthouse in Kerala is set to reopen soon after a consecutive gap of almost two years. The serene and beautiful Lighthouse, one of Kerala's oldest and most beautiful lighthouses, is set to reopen. Its counted by many as one of the oldest lighthouses in the country, let alone Kerala. The Lighthouse was sealed after the Pandemic hit. Visitors can visit every day except Monday, the day on which the Lighthouse remains closed. It’s incredibly iconic, and the views from the top are nothing short of astonishing. 

3. As per official sources from the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC), India’s Palace On Wheels, a luxurious royal stay onboard wheels, is all set to start again. It was stopped in 2020 due to Covid-19. But, interested tourists may need to wait a bit as the RTDC has to clear about Rs. 42 crores, the pending dues, to Indian Railways.

4. Kedarnath, one of the Char Dhams for Hindus, opened last week for pilgrims. Within seven days, the influx of pilgrims has been so humongous that experts warn against such massive gatherings. Kedarnath is located in an ecologically sensitive zone. The entire region can handle about ten thousand people a day. However, recently, as many as twenty thousand people gathered at the Gaurikund, and the officials had to stop them from proceeding ahead further. As a result, many devotees could not get hotel rooms and had to spend the night in the open. 

5. The Himachal road transport Corporation has established a new green public travel corridor between Manali and Rohtang pass. It has been achieved by using newly employed electric buses to ply between these 2 points. The state has provided various advantages to using electric buses instead of private vehicles. Private vehicles require a hard-to-obtain permit to use this route. Travelers using the buses, though, are not required to have any permit and can travel to and fro easily. The electric buses are also priced competitively, with the tickets costing Rs. 600 each. Sustainable development and reducing pollution levels are goals that the state wishes to achieve alongside providing a smooth ride to tourists.
