Nainital (Uttarakhand), Nov.11 (ANI): Tourism has picked up in Nainital, as the hill station is experiencing a rush of tourists.
Tourism was hit last month by a series of natural calamities like landslides, incessant rainfall and breaking of roads.
"There was a lot of damage because of the calamities. The Bengalis were scared as roads broke down due to which they did not come. Also the elections in Bihar were stopping the Bengalis from coming here," said Kamal Jagati, the Nainital Hotel Association spokesperson.
"Now we are receiving a lot of tourists from Gujarat and Maharashtra and we have provided them with good packages, and have been successful in reaching out to them through the Internet, and the result is showing," he added.
Tourists visiting Nainital for the first time expressed satisfaction.
"The public and view are very nice; the environment is also good, you won't feel scared to go out at 12 o' clock in the night, it is that good," said Manisha Desai, a tourist from Gujarat. By Vipul Goel(ANI)
