For years, Uttarakhand’s economy has hosted on religious tourism, which has now become the state’s pillar stone also. Looks like the Kumbh mela will invite many visitors to the state for the upcoming year. With the Coronavirus outbreak, many people pulled over the travels whereas the annual pilgrimage of Char Dham Yatra too resumed with tons of restrictions. The impact was such that the government announced suspension in the Kanwar Yatra as well that takes place every year during July and takes thousands of people to Uttarakhand. Now all eyes are set on the Kumbh Mela 2021. According to Seema Nautiyal, Haridwar District Tourism Officer, the Kumbh Mela expected to be organised bit before next year is likely to be a hope of revival for people affiliated with tourism in the state.
