Adventure sports resumed in Himachal Pradesh

Adventure sports have been suspended due to several accidents that happened in the past year.

After a long delay in the normal resumption of adventure tourism, the adventure sports activities have resumed successfully in various parts of Himachal Pradesh. Due to covid, many businesses have suffered great financial losses and have resulted in the shutdown in their businesses.

Another reason for the suspension of Paragliding, in particular, is due to the several accidents that happened recently. Some paragliding instructors were found to be unqualified and unlicensed. The government decided to shut down paragliding in several places in Himachal Pradesh.

The renewal of the licenses for the adventure activity instructors will most likely help restart the adventure tourism in Himachal. Activities such as River rafting, paragliding, mountain biking are likely to start in a few weeks.

Many stakeholders have requested the government to help them restart their businesses as the tourists are starting to flood Himachal Pradesh. Most likely the government officials will review the licenses and documentation of instructors engaged in the adventure activities. This is done to ensure the safety of the people who indulge in adventure tourism activities.

Since the past few days, the number of tourists visiting Himachal Pradesh has increased greatly. With the international flights starting in the coming weeks, the tourism industry of Himachal Pradesh is likely to revive this year. The following news article from ‘Tribune India’ reports about the resumption of adventure tourism activities in Himachal Pradesh.
