Monsoon Tourism to promote off-season

CII set the stage for different Indian states to promote a unique tourism package called ‘Monsoon Tourism’. Industry players and tour operators from Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Puducherry, came together at the ‘Seminar on Monsoon Tourism’ organised by the Confederation on Indian Industry (CII) in New Delhi. Speaking at the event, P Rajavelu, Minister for Tourism, Government of Puducherry, said, monsoon is the time when most of the tourist population gets out and is the best time to get in. In Puducherry, monsoon starts from November and ends mid-December which is a pre-peak season of high-end international travellers. The Minister highlighted a few such monsoon attractions – the Boat Race in Kerala, Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand, Adventure Sports in Rishikesh, the Satpura Monsoon Festival and the Mud Rush Festival in Gujarat. Arjun Sharma, Chairman, Le Passage to India, said that when it comes to monsoon tourism, Goa and Kerala are the ground breakers which paved the way for several other states. The myth about India being not so popular during the monsoon season is fast changing. He said there is a need to make this a flourishing tourist season by improving infrastructure, roads, airline services and hotels. Monsoon is the time when MICE tourism, conferences and events can be held, he added.
