Northeast promotes itself as potential tourist destination

by Ani 2:41 mins

Rich scenic beauty, exotic flora and fauna, delicious cuisines, indigenous arts and handicrafts... the northeastern states of India have a lot to offer to every visitor. The tourism potential of the region is largely untapped. With the decline of insurgency, a lot of emphasis is being given to develop tourist destinations and attract more visitors. Recently, on occasion of the World Tourism Day that was celebrated under the theme "One Billion Tourists, One Billion Opportunities", the northeastern states organized programmes to highlight the growth potential of the tourism sector. In Nagaland, a special programme was held to commemorate the United Nations World Tourism Day at Peren. The event was marked by songs and colorful dance performances. Chief Minister TR Zeliang, who was present at the function emphasized on the importance of peace for the tourism sector. In Manipur, the state tourism department organized an event at Santhei Natural Park in Andro village. Different cultural dances, songs, and traditional activities of various tribes were showcased during the programme. The visitors had a good time enjoying the rich scenic beauty of the village and getting glimpses of the traditional tribal exhibits. Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh stressed on the need to maintain peace to facilitate greater tourist influx into the state.
