Champawat The first paragliding site in the district has been selected. The area around Banasur Fort has been selected and the proposal has been sent to the Tourism Directorate. With the increase of adventure tourism in the district after the approval of the proposal, the influx of tourists is also expected to increase.
Adventure Tourism Department surveyed five places
The Adventure Tourism Department surveyed five places for paragliding in the district. Four sites were found unsuitable for paragliding in the field trials around Jhumadhuri, Diyuri, Chandalkot, Chalthi and Banasur Fort. Only the area around the fort of Banasur met the standards of paragliding. District Adventure Tourism Officer Lata Bisht said that the proposal has been sent to the Directorate after being found suitable in the test. There are 18 electric poles around the fort. The Energy Corporation has been urged to shift these poles from here to elsewhere.
The department says that after completion of the perennial route by March this year, it will be possible to reach near Banasur Fort, 95 km from Tanakpur, in a journey of just two and a half hours. This will provide a new option for adventure tourism enthusiasts. The tourism department believes that in addition to better infrastructure, adventure tourism along with spiritual tourism like Maa Purnagiri Dham, Maa Barahi Dham Devidhura will also increase the influx of tourists.
