Almora in Uttarakhand, the land of natural beauty, has all the potential to become a major tourist attraction. However, given its fragile ecology sustainability is not an option here but a prerequisite for any kind of development to take place. Aiming to increase the footfalls of domestic and global tourists and enhancing the visitor experience, while simultaneously taking concrete steps to conserve the invaluable natural resources, the district administration of Almora has taken several measures in recent times to boost the local economy.
Following the unprecedented success of the Almora Festival of 2018, in which Elets Technomedia was a crucial partner, the district administration of Almora, under the able guidance of District Magistrate Nitin Bhadauria, is once again readying itself to welcome the visitors with the singular objective of making the festival grander.
On this occasion, the district administration, in association with eGov magazine, has come up with a special issue that not only highlights the developmental work being carried out in the Almora, but also presents the perspectives of various stakeholders who are involved in the rejuvenation of Kosi River, the lifeline of the picturesque town.
The bouquet of articles and interview in this issue of the magazine will aid our readers to develop a better insight into the challenges of hilly districts like Almora, where the relationship between the man and nature remains intricately balanced and a slight disturbance like unplanned development may result into disastrous consequences for both.
We wish Almora district administration all the best for the upcoming Alomra Festival, 2019 and hope it will bring more prosperity to the hill district.
