Odisha’s state capital is poised to become a major ecotourism hub

Bhubaneswar.18/8/17: Odisha’s state capital is poised to become a major ecotourism hub with the government making up its mind to launch luxury tourist bus service explore the natural assets on the fringes of the fast-growing smart city. Bhubaneswar in all probability is the lone state capital which is endowed with breathtaking wildlife and forest cover in its close proximity. Amid the mushrooming growth of concrete jungle, the bustling city presents a unique paradox of urban characteristics amid wilderness. So the need of the hour was to explore the untapped eco-tourism potential, said a senior forest department official.

The forest cover lying on the outskirts has immense potential for those nature lovers yearning for serene environs of the eco-tourism destinations. The government has moved to showcase the spots and provide exposure to it. Three lush-green forest covers lying in close vicinity of the city would be explored to attract tourists.

Cosy buses would be pressed into service to ferry the visitors to Nandankanan Biological Park and Chudanga and Bharatpur forests of Chandaka division. While Nandankanan had received exposure to outer world, the abundance of greenery, wildlife and natural ambience of Chudanga and Bharatpur hardly figure in the itinerary of eco-tourists..
