Outbound Traveler Mart (OTM) was once again launched in Mumbai on 14 March after two years due to the global pandemic. Uttarakhand Tourism along with the partners associated with the tourism sector of the country and abroad participated in the event. Uttarakhand Tourism is represented by Additional Director Shri Vivek Chauhan. Along with this, about 50 tourism businessmen of the state associated with the tourism business also participated in OTM.
OTM held in Mumbai was inaugurated by Dr. Abdulla Moussoom, Minister of Tourism of Maldives.
Vivek Chauhan, Additional Director, UTDB said "OTM gives the most influential tourism leaders of India and Asia a platform to exchange their views. Representing Uttarakhand tourism on such a platform will prove to be important for promoting the tourism of our state. In the last two years, due to Corona restrictions, Chardham and Hemkund Sahib Yatra could not be operated on a large scale in the state. But this time our state is fully prepared for Chardham and Hemkund Sahib Yatra when the situation becomes normal. It is expected that this time the number of passengers will be more than before. Passenger facilities have been expanded in the state for this year's Chardham and Hemkund Sahib Yatra. Heli service is also being provided for the passengers. Apart from this, preparations have been completed to arrange accommodation, food as well as all other facilities for the pilgrims in Chardham and Hemkund Sahib."
The Additional Director informed that keeping in mind the safety of the pilgrims in Chardham and Hemkund Sahib Yatra, which will start soon in the state, the Uttarakhand government has made arrangements for online and offline registration and verification for the first time. With this, the pilgrims and their vehicles can be easily tracked along with their safety. For this, a mobile app and website have been prepared by the tourism department. The doors of world-famous Yamunotri and Gangotri Dham will be opened on Akshaya Tritiya on 03 May, Kedarnath Dham on 06 May, and Badrinath Dham on 08 May.
