Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
To take tourism to a new dimension in Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India, the Tourism Department has prepared an innovative strategy for 2024. Plans are being made to bring new tourism products, make tourism more accessible and develop offbeat destinations.

With the help of products like cruise tourism, all women rides, safe women tourism, wellness and rural tourism etc., new dimensions will be established in 2024 and the state will be established as a major tourist destination. Principal Secretary Tourism and Managing Director Madhya Pradesh Tourism Board Shiv Shekhar Shukla says, we had prepared a multi-dimensional strategy for tourism in 2023. There are plans to make it more holistic, inclusive, sustainable, eco-friendly and adventure-filled in 2024. Identifying and developing new trekking trails in various buffer zones of national parks/sanctuaries will be part of the tourism strategy.

New paths will be found through cruise tourism

Principal Secretary Shukla said, we have an excellent plan for cruise tourism in 2024. The main attraction will be an inter-state cruise of about 130 km on the Narmada River from the ‘Statue of Oneness’ in Omkareshwar to the ‘Statue of Unity’ in Gujarat. Floating jetties are already being established. Tourists will be able to enjoy rural tourism experiences between the two destinations.
