Tourism Dept takes steps to promote tourism in Karnataka

Raja's seat (

Mysore : The Tourism Department has taken up various projects to promote tourism in Kodagu district, also called ‘Coffee Land”, which has shown tremendous increase in tourists.

Tourism Department sources told UNI that the district, which is a gift of nature by itself, has been attracting increasing number of tourists over the years. It is ironical that the top post of Tourism Department in the district has been lying vacant at a time when tourism projects in the district need fast track development.

A proposal has been prepared for the various projects and Rs seven crore is expected to be spent in Kodagu district to promote various tourism-related activities in the current year, which includes a project to set up an academy to boost adventure tourism.

District headquarters of Kodagu Madkeri is 1,525 meters above the sea level. Termed as the Scotland of India, the town has several attractions. Undulating hills, verdant forests, endless expanses of tea and coffee plantations, uneven streets and awe-inspiring views convert Madikeri of Karnataka into a wonderful tourist destination.

A sum of Rs one crore has been set apart to establish the adventure academy here.
