Home to the amazing Golden Temple, Punjab is set to attract international travellers by reinventing itself as a hotspot for water sports and eco-tourism.

The Punjab Government is giving us reason to cheer even as temperatures soar across the country. The state has announced plans to develop the Ranjit Sagar Lake, which has the state’s largest hydroelectric dam, into a hub for water sports and eco-tourism.

The Federation of Association in Indian Tourism and Hospitality (FAITH) submitted a pre-feasibility report on the project after careful examination. The report discusses the possible development of star category eco-resorts, a convention center, and water-based adventure activities, etc. at various spots around the lake.

Meanwhile, the state government has gone ahead with the development of nearly 300 acres of land available for this project. The planned tourist destination will also cover the nearby islands of Kulara and Musharba, spread across nearly 17 and 3 acres, respectively.

While we patiently wait for this to become the next big thing for international tourists, the Punjab government has already allocated Rs 300 crore to conserve structures that have a rich religious and historical heritage.

Seems like the state government is leaving no stones unturned in its effort to transform Punjab into a tourist hotspot!
