MANALI: Tourists visiting Himachal Pradesh may soon get a world class eco-friendly tourist destination as Hamta in Kullu valley which is close to open for tourists in few months.
A team of officials from tourism and civil aviation, administration, forest department and local stakeholders led by Manali sub-divisional magistrate Vinay Dhiman visited Hamta to check its feasibility as a tourist destination on Thursday. According to sources, the team found everything right and Hamta may open for tourists after inauguration by chief minister during Winter Carnival in January 2014.
The main challenge for safe conduct of the tourism activity in Hamta is approach road to Hamta from Manali with more than 40 hairpin bends and large gradients at some points. The team found that road was worth taking the load of tourist crowd. Road to Hamta is under jurisdiction of Allain Duhangan Hydropower Ltd (ADHPL) which has commissioned its 192 MW hydropower projects here.
Dhiman said that plan is to promote Hamta has an eco-friendly tourist destination and a sub-committee will be formed to prepare a detailed report on Hamta. He said, “The committee will forward its report to ADHPL authority for final approval. We checked the various aspects like safety, security and conservation of environment. The number of vehicles and tourists will be restricted to Hamta to conserve the natural resources here.”
He said ADHPL authority will be requested to co-operate with them in promotion of the new tourist destination. Hamta is famous for least seen exotic and beautiful locations along with ski slopes, religious sites, old trekking trails and wildlife. Dhiman said that joint inspection of Hamta has brought positive results and now they were looking forward for co-operation from ADHPL. “If Hamta opens for tourists, it will also decongest Rohtang pass by drawing traffic.”
