Atal Tunnel is facing heavy traffic ahead of New Year

Thousands of tourists are visiting Himachal Pradesh from Chandigarh, Haryana and Delhi.

In the last few days, the Atal Tunnel leading to Manali, Himachal Pradesh has seen heavy traffic. The new year is just around the corner, and the tourists are rushing to Manali and other popular destinations in Himachal Pradesh. There have been long lines of vehicles stuck in a jam due to the heavy inflow of tourists. This is most likely to continue for the coming weeks.

Several tourist destinations in India are preparing to receive tourists from within India. Goa and Rajasthan are already popular choices for tourists seeking refuge from the cold weather. In Rajasthan, several festivals are scheduled during the new year. However, international tourists are still not arriving in the numbers that can revive the tourism sector.

On the other hand, people from Delhi, Chandigarh, and Haryana are rushing for Manali and other destinations of Himachal Pradesh to witness snow. Several winter sports activities and cultural events are held during the winter months. Rohtang Pass is among the most visited destination for people who wants to watch the snowfall.

The Omicron scare is still lingering in the mind of the tourism stakeholders. In the coming weeks, it is quite likely that the restrictions will be implemented that will slow down the tourism activities. As of now, tourists visiting Himachal Pradesh are continuing to travel in large numbers.

Following is the news article from ‘Hindustan Times’ reporting about the heavy tourist numbers observed in and around Atal Tunnel.
