In the choice of adventure lovers, Goa has been second and Kerala third.
According to Secretary Tourism Dilip Jawalkar, the Union Tourism Ministry celebrated in the year 2018 as Adventure Year. Getting such a significant achievement in this year is a matter of respect for tourism of the state. He said that Rishikesh has now been honored not only as Yoga Capital but also the title of Adventure Capital. This is a positive message in favor of proposed PATA-2019 in the coming month of February.
He said that the study of Central Tourism Ministry has also revealed that 25 per cent of the people selected Trekking. River rafting proved to be a very popular adventure sport, becoming the preferred choice of 14 percent Indians. The reason it has been reported is that there are so many rafting rapids available in India and people like to enjoy rafting as a group.
