  1. It is great, but care should be taken for existing tourist places too. I have some proposals for the development of Rewalsar tourist place. please let me know how to contact you to make a contribution in this regard.

  2. A New Untapped tourism site ” VASUKI-NAAG MANDIR BASKERA, SAJOTH AT SAMRA-LIHAL BLOCK MEHLA CONSTITUENCY BHARMOUR has been identified by the Tourism Department and a number of proposals has been submitted for sanction of Budget under NAI RAHEIN NAI MANZILEIN, This site is very naturally beautiful called as Minni Kashmir, But Neither Govt. Nor Department has taken any action for sanction of budget in spite of requests since last five year. People once again request to develop this site under Govt
    this new scheme

  3. The Himachal pradesh Govt is stressing to identify the untapped tourist spot in the State, only on announcement and papers and is not serious to done any development , as from last more than 5 years Vasuki Naag Mandir Chamba At Gram Panchayat Dulara, -Lihal, in Block Mehla have requested a number of times, but neither any budget sanctioned, nor any development of basic amenities developed for this are and people , devotee, and tourist suffer more to visit at this very nice tourist spot, Again requested to the Govt and Concerned Departments to provide some basic amenities for toilet , foot path rail shelter , resting point for tourists, and a Tourist Hut, so that the tourists may not suffer.

    With Regards
