Heritage-rich Himachal Beckons The Tourist by Pamela

Nature's beauty in bounty has been gifted upon Himachal Pradesh that has earned the sobriquet of 'paradise on earth' for all seasons and all reasons. Endowed with immense natural beauty, salubrious ambience and tranquility the state has become the choicest destinations for the tourists to spend quality time close to nature.

Last year, Himachal has been commended as the "Best Tourisim Destination" and Shimla town the "Best Mountain Town" in the survey conducted by CNBC Awaaz.

ECO-TOURISM

The concept of eco­ tourism first came into existence in the early 1980s and since then it is a worldwide concept that is developing faster. It has in its ambit the environment, the wildlife and forest reserves other than the social connotations.

Exploring this, Himachal has also looked towards developing its vast potential of eco-tourism in its pure form that not only provides travel to natural areas that conserve the environment but also improves the wellbeing of local people.

The State Forest Department alone manages more than 400 forest bungalows located at vantage points across the length and breadth of the state. It also manages a 5,000-km-long network of bridle paths and inspection trails crisscrossing through the most beautiful forests of the state. This gives myriad opportunities to trek across mountain passes, to remote temples, crystal clear lakes and traditional villages. These facilities beckon the young and the old alike to come and enjoy the best of Himachal Pradesh in its splendour.

Another crucial link in eco-tourism is the local people, who help preserve the nature trails. The tribals in Himachal Pradesh are a major component of eco­ tourism. The entire areas of Lahaul, Spiti and Kinnaur near Ladakh and Tibet was once full of different tribal groups.

To encourage eco­ tourism, the state tourism department in 2008 had initiated home stay facilities to tourists and to supplement the availability of accommodation in the rural tourist destinations on the basis of Government of India "Incredible India Bed and Breakfast scheme".

The idea was to provide a clean and affordable place for foreigners and domestic tourists alike, including an opportunity for foreign tourists to stay with Himachali families to experience Himachali customs and traditions and relish authentic Indian/Himachali cuisine.

Besides, a dedicated wing the Eco-tourism Society, an autonomous and independent body has been set up by the state government with a main aim to preserve and protect natural, historical and cultural heritage of Himachal Pradesh. It provides opportunities to promote Community Based Eco-tourism (CBET) in Himachal Pradesh, particularly using latest approaches of participatory forestry management for sustainable development of forests, thereby generating revenue for the state.

Eco-society has been working to create destinations, lodges and tours.

Designated eco-tourist circuits are being set up that include, Shimla Forest circle with centre at Rohru, three Kullu forest Circles, one centre at Kullu, second centre at Shamshi, third centre at Sai Ropa, Rampur Forest Circle (non-tribal) centre at Anni, Rampur Forest Circle (Tribal) with centre at Kalpa, Dharamsala Forest Circle with centre at Palampur, Nahan Forest Circle with centre at Nahan. These eco circuits according to their natural resources and ambience are blessed with potential for picturesque places, horse riding, ornithology, wild life viewing, skiing, fishing, treks and trail hikes, river rafting, potential camp sites, religious tourism, mountain climbing and paragliding.

"To lure the dedicated tourists Himachal Tourism has extended six tourist circuits in the state keeping in mind their interest.

In the vicinity, gurudwara Shergah Sahib commemorates the spot where the guru sliced off the head of a man-eating tiger with one blow of his sword.

At Rewalsar, 25 km from Mandi, is a place that is sacred to many faiths. With his enormous powers, Padmasambhava is regarded to have flown from here to Tibet to spread Buddhism and the sage Lomas (regarded by many to be Padmasambhava) is also said to have meditated here.

There is also a gurudwara at Rewalsar, which was built in 1930 under the patronage of Raja Joginder Sen of Mandi.
