After the banging entry of monsoon in Himachal, the weather has become pleasant due to its weakening. Due to this, tourists have again started turning to the mountains. For example, the occupancy in hotels has reached up to 75 percent. It is expected to be 90 percent on the weekend. The tourism businessman is also happy with this.

Between June 24 and 27, after heavy rains, more than 400 roads, including the National Highway, were blocked by landslides at various places. Due to this, tourists especially going to Manali, Spiti, Kinnaur and Narkanda faced difficulties. Sensing the danger of landslides, tourists had also canceled advance bookings in hotels.

But, after the monsoon has weakened a bit, tourism from all over the country is ready to come to the mountains. Advance booking for this has started again.
