Himachal CM Sukhu Announces Opening of Three High-End Hotels Along Kiratpur-Manali Four-Lane for Tourists
Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, while presiding over a review meeting of the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) at his official residence Oak Over Shimla on Sunday evening, announced plans to open three high-end hotels along the Kiratpur-Manali four-lane road. The aim of this initiative is to provide enhanced facilities for tourists and commuters traveling through the region.
The proposed hotels will be equipped with modern amenities, elevating the overall tourism experience in the state. To ensure the successful implementation of this project, a consultant has conducted a study to determine the best approach.
Emphasizing the significance of developing infrastructure to promote tourism, Chief Minister Sukhu highlighted that the influx of tourists would substantially increase once the four-lane road becomes operational. The state government is committed to providing all necessary amenities to ensure the comfort and convenience of tourists.
The expansion of tourism infrastructure and services is expected to have a positive impact on employment opportunities, creating both direct and indirect jobs for the local population. In line with this, the recent cabinet meeting resulted in a decision to establish Highway-cum-Tourist Police Stations at Baghed in the Bilaspur district, Nerchowk in the Mandi district, and Bhunter in Kullu district along the Kiratpur-Manali National Highway. These police stations will play a vital role in ensuring the safety and security of commuters.
During the meeting, Amit Kashyap, Managing Director of the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC), provided a comprehensive overview of the corporation’s ongoing projects, showcasing their commitment to the development of tourism in the state.
The opening of these high-end hotels along the Kiratpur-Manali four-lane road marks a significant step forward in Himachal Pradesh’s efforts to boost tourism and provide a memorable experience for visitors. The state government’s proactive measures in expanding infrastructure and services demonstrate their commitment to the growth and prosperity of the tourism sector.
