New Delhi:  The central government has put up the anticipated timeline for completion of the Tribal Tourism Circuit in Chhattisgarh by 2019-20. This circuit will provide an opportunity to the tourists to witness and experience tribal culture and traditions in Chhattisgarh, officials informed. With an objective to take tourism in Chhattisgarh to the next level, the Chhattisgarh Government is also planning to take a series of initiatives for developing ‘Highway Tourism’ in the state as well.
 
The key components for development under the project are ‘Ethnic Tourist Village’ and ‘Ethnic Tourist Development’, destination development and wayside amenities. The project would be developed by Chhattisgarh Tourism Board (CTB). The objective of forming the tourism circuit is to highlight rich and ancient tribal culture and environment of state’s tribal dominated regions.
 
The Tribal Tourism Circuit comprises – Jashpur, Kunkuri, Mainpat, Ambikapur, Maheshpur, Ratanpur, Kurdar, Sarodadadar Gangrel, Kondagaon, Nathyanawagaon, Jagdalpur, Chitrakoot, and Tirthgarh in Chhattisgarh under the Swadesh Darshan Scheme. Notably, the union government has approved INR 99.94 crore based on a detailed project report submitted by CTB for development of the circuit in the state under ‘Swadesh Darshan’ package. The approval was given in a secretary-level meeting held in New Delhi, officials stated.
 
In this circuit, Jashpur, Ambikapur and Sarodhadadar would be developed as ethnic tourist village and Mainpat, Kurdur, Gangrel, Kondagaon, Jagdalpur, Chitrakoot and Teerathgarh are to be developed for eco-ethnic tourism while work for sight amenities will be carried out in Kunkuri, Maheshpur and Nathiyanawagaon.
