Anuppur: Tourists reach among the beautiful plains of Maikal mountain range

Anuppur, 24 November (Hindustan Times). People from different parts of the country reach for trekking tourism in the holy city of Amarkantak. Amarkantak, situated in the middle of the Maikal mountain range, has a better environment for trekking due to being covered with forest area. Thousands of people are reaching here every year for trekking. For this, a tracking route of 15 kilometers has been developed. Filled with dense forests all around, tourists get a chance to admire the natural beauty on this trekking route. Due to the importance of Amarkantak city from religious point of view, people keep coming and going here. Trekking can be done here only in winter and summer season. Due to being surrounded by green valleys and the temperature here is less than other areas, people reach here even in summer. During the rainy season, the trekking route is closed due to thick bushes in the trekking route.

Along with publicity, lack of facility, proposal sent

There is not much preparation at the local level for trekking in Amarkantak. Despite this, last year 6000 people reached here for trekking to see the natural beauty of the place and the beauty of Mankal mountain range. At present, there is not much effort and preparation at the local level for tracking. Boards related to tracking have been installed only near Bandha Sonmuda bus stand and sports complex. Along with correspondence to the senior office regarding development of the track route, the Forest Department has also demanded a budget. On which the budget has not been received from the department till now. There is a need to provide facilities to the tourists regarding trekking in Amarkantak full of natural beauty. On which the department says that for tracking, facilities are provided to the tourists by the watchman of the forest department and other employees.

The first trekking route in the Amarkantak forest range is located between Shambhu Dhara and Kapil Dhara. The 7.5 kilometer long trekking route is built on Hanuman Dhara, Laxman Dhara, Kihani Aama, Jampani, Panchdhara, Dudhdhara, Kapildhara route.
