In the past few months, many tourist destinations in India have introduced new tourist activities and projects. Recently, the state government of Karnataka has introduced a new tourism activity in the Gokak Fall in the district of Belagavi. Gokak Falls is one of the most-visited tourist destinations in Karnataka. Kayaking will most likely boost the tourism activities in the area and will bring in much-needed revenue for the local economy.
Kayaking is quite popular among the young tourists visiting Karnataka. The Kayaking activity was introduced as an initiative to boost the tourism of Karnataka. Since the last few weeks, more than 300 tourists have engaged in Kayaking trips. Tourists also were given paddling lessons by certified kayaking trainers.
The cost of the 30-minute ride is around 300 Indian rupees. In the coming month, the number of tourists is expected to increase in Karnataka. Being a great winter travel destination, Karnataka is a great place to spend some quality time in the forests and beaches.
The chartered flights will mark the beginning of international tourism in India after the long pandemic period. The first chartered flights are expected to land in Goa in December. Also, visas have already started being issued to international tourists. The travel restrictions have been lifted and next year is most likely to steadily increase the tourist numbers in India.
Following is the official news report from ‘Time of India’ reporting about the addition of Kayaking in Gokak Falls in Karnataka.
