IRCTC launches tour package to tiger reserves
According to the IRCTC, the tour package would take travellers to tiger reserves of Bandhavgarh and Kanha national parks on a semi-luxury AC tourist train christened 'Tiger Express'.
"Sighting of Indian tigers has always been a huge attraction for travellers and wildlife enthusiasts from India and abroad alike. The Tiger Express has been chalked out to make it an affordable and glitch-free experience for those who want to have a brush with India's famed wildlife," said A.K. Manocha, chairman and managing director, IRCTC.
"We have tried to leverage this allurement as a tourism product with huge potential," he said, adding that "more such innovative products are in the pipeline."
Besides visits to Bandavgarh and Kanha national parks in the semi-luxury train and air-conditioned road transportation, travellers will also get a chance to visit the famous Dhuadhar Falls at Bhedaghat in Jabalpur.
The five nights, 6 days tour programme starts from Rs.38,500.
