Kaziranga National Park to host Gaj Utsav 2023 this month; safaris to remain closed

Gaj Utsav 2023 will be celebrated at Assam’s Kaziranga National Park to commemorate the successful completion of 30 years of Project Elephant, and to provide the much needed boost to conservation efforts. This two-day festival will be held on April 7 and 8, 2023. This event is significant as Kaziranga is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, and also serves as home to the highest density of tigers in the world.

Do note that due to this event, the jeep and elephant safaris at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam will remain suspended for the said two days for the tourists. If reports are to go by, the safaris will remain closed in all the ranges of the national park, including Kohora, Bagori, Burapahar and Agoratoli.

Coming soon: Mega adventure tourism trails in India

There’s a lot to look forward to this year in terms of adventure tourism in India. India will have two mega adventure trails in 2023 – the Ganga Trail and Northwestern Himalayan Trail.

As the name suggests, these two mega tourism trails will be launched in the Himalayas and the Gangetic region. There are a number of adventure trails in the pipeline such as Narmada Trail from Amarkantak to Arabian Sea, Kaveri River Trail, West Coast Trail from Kutch to Kanyakumari, and East Coast Trail from West Bengal to Kanyakumari to name a few. But for now, efforts will be made to develop the two aforementioned trails to start with. As per reports, all these adventure tourism activities will be developed keeping in mind the sustainability and the role it’s going to play in bringing opportunities for livelihood for communities residing in these regions.
