Much has been changing in the Jharkhand Tourism in recent times. The state is already endowed with much natural scenic beauty. The state government is now bent upon capitalizing on its natural beauty and taking many steps in this direction. So if you did not consider the state to be a good tourist destination, the present steps would surely make you think.

One such initiative in this regard is the development of a three tier village development plan

Jharkhand villages getting geared up for a three tier fully fledged development plan
The state government of Jharkhand has a comprehensive 3 tier village development plan for the future. As per the ambitious plan a two day gram sabha meeting would be organized in October 2016 across 32000 villages in the state. Thus the rural people of the state are all set to actively participate in the program. According to the state government as much as 79% of the total population of the state resides in the rural villages. Many of them are situated on hilltops and near rivulets. Thus all of them offer a very picturesque scenic beauty which is difficult to match. They therefore have a great potential to draw tourist from far and near. 
According to the proposed schemes of ‘Neeti Ayog’, the state government has initiated empowerment and development schemes for villages. The main objective of these widely held meetings would be to plan and develop long term plans for development in various fields. The state government intends that the villagers discuss about important topics like agriculture, land development, tourism and irrigation. Other issues to be discussed could be animal husbandry, Health and Nutrition, education & skill development during the two-day deliberations.
Spots are being identified for promoting adventure sports in the state
With the program much is expected to change. Apart from this the state government is also planning to take steps some spots in the state to be used for adventure sports. The global market has seen an upsurge in interest of tourists for wild life sanctuaries and bird watching. However not many states have been able to cater to the rising demand. This has prompted the Jharkhand state government to take up new initiatives in this regard.

As of now the places of tourist interest in the state are many. These include the Maithan dam, Bhatinda falls, the Kalyaneshwari temple, Topchanchi Lake just to name a few. With so many initiatives being taken, Jharkhand is soon likely to be a top tourist destination in the region. So in case you are planning to take a quick holiday you could definitely consider Jharkhand. In case you visit Dhanbad, then you must stay at Hotel Cocoon Dhanbad.

The top 5 travelling trends in 2016

The festival season has started here in India. The Ganesh Chaturthi and Durga Puja have just over paving the way for the much awaited Diwali and Chhath puja. If you are planning a holiday trip this time of the year, it might just be the right time to know about the top travelling trends of the year. Exploring new unexplored destinations may be one of the top wishes which you might be having as an adventurous traveler. India of course is so rich in art and culture and being a nation which has an ancient history, it always has plenty to offer to travelers worldwide. And all know that the good effects of travel on health and mind.
Many now favour experimental journeys
Studies suggest that many travelers now prefer to undertake experimental trips. This involves a slow paced trip which would provide plenty of local experience to the trip. So in case you want to indulge in the local experiences you could plan for one too. Thus instead of staying at the high end luxury hotels, you could consider home stay which could provide you with a better flavour of the local life of the place you plan to travel to.
You could avail the services of a personal photographer
The trend of almost everyone taking selfies and uploading them into social media might make you feel burdened. This is why you could now opt for a personal photographer. Many tour operators are now providing the travelers with a personal snapper who would also have internet hotspots. They would document your trip and deliver a daily dose of Insta-appropriate images. This is an innovative idea which seems to be working well for most tour operators.

Wellness is a top priority for the hospitality industry
Wellness for most globetrotters is a top priority. This is why most resorts, hotels, holiday homes and even airlines are putting a major portion of their itinerary on the same. The services offered include everything from de-stressing, detoxing and other health-related activities. So in case you are a fitness freak, taking care of your health would not be a problem even when you are on tour. 
Travel Apps continue to dominate the travel sector
Whether be it flight booking or booking a package, travels apps have dominated the travelling industry. This offers great convenience to you as a traveler. The other benefit it offers is that with so much competition now in the sector you could easily land up with a really lucrative deal, which might not have been possible otherwise.
Travelling with strangers
It might sound scary, but travelling is about meeting new people. Many now prefer to take solo trips to travel to unexplored places with a group of strangers. So many travelers are now seen to travel to lesser known places which are smaller towns and villages. In fact travelling to these locations had emerged as a big trend. Perhaps one primary reason for this is that you can travel at a low budget.
Being in the hospitality industry for long , we at Hotel Cocoon Dhanbad, hope that now that you are aware of the latest trends of travelling, you can now plan better for your trips. In case you plan to travel to Dhanbad, you must book your rooms at Hotel Cocoon Dhanbad, one of the best luxury hotels of Dhanbad. For details visit our website.
