Sambhar Lake in Rajasthan is all set to be revamped as a New Tourist spot for nature lovers. Sambhar Salt-Lake situated 80 km from Jaipur is famous for its unique habitat of flora and fauna.
Chief Secretary Niranjan Arya said here on Friday that the Sambhar Lake, which formed part of the desert circuit in the Centre’s Swadesh Darshan Scheme, had an immense potential for tourism. In addition to the migratory birds, the natural process of salt getting deposited in the lake could be displayed to the tourists, he said. A ‘ Salt train’ that transported salt from there pans to nearby refinery , will also be started.
According to a media report, New destinations around the lake, including salt museum, caravan park, bicycle track and gardens, are set to attract a large number of tourists to the region. Mr. Arya said a constant monitoring for protection of migratory birds would be ensured at the lake, where the mass death of birds had occurred in 2019 due to bird flu.
The illegal salt production in the lake will be stopped through action against unauthorised borewells and pipelines laid in the region, while encroachments on the land will be removed with the help of police.
