Tourists are visiting Rajasthan in large numbers despite Omicron scare

The states of Himachal Pradesh and Goa have also seen a rise in the number of visiting tourists.

Rajasthan is one of the most famous travel destinations for international as well as domestic tourists. However, since the beginning of the pandemic, the tourism sector of Rajasthan has been struggling. Many artists, local craftsmen, and business operators have lost their source of livelihood. International tourism has not started in India yet and it has affected the recovery of the tourism businesses.

However, domestic tourism has significantly picked up generating the much-needed revenue for the hotels and other tourism-related businesses. This is not much but still, many businesses have managed to stay afloat due to the rising number of domestic tourists. The state of Himachal Pradesh has also seen a large number of domestic tourists visiting the popular destinations of Manali and Shimla.

A major chunk of the Indian population has been vaccinated and despite the new Omicron variant, people are traveling. It has been observed by the health experts that the Omicron variant is not as serious as the previous Delta variant. The beginning of the winter season has always brought hundreds of tourists to Rajasthan.

Another factor contributing to the increased tourist activity is the pollution in Delhi and nearby areas. Recently, hundreds of people are traveling from Delhi, Haryana, and Punjab to escape the smog-filled air during the winter season. Another popular winter destination is Goa which has also seen a rising number of visiting tourists.

Following is the news article from ‘Times of India’ reporting about the recent surge of tourists in Rajasthan.
