It must become a proven fact that everything that is hidden or unknown attracts us and no matter how hard you try get over, we are more drawn towards to it.
The Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, famous for its mystic aura, spirituality centers and indescribable natural beauty is offering everyone a spooky proposal to cash in the mysterious and supernatural places for the public’s interest and to promote the city’s tourism.
“Ghost tourism has ample prospects of attracting foreign tourists” Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj said.
The land of Uttarakhand has its fare share of haunted spots that can send a chill down your spine. Adding to this, the local tales about the paranormal are the incidences that have served as an inspiration to authors and storytellers all across the world.
Famous writer Agatha Christie set her ‘The Mysterious Affairs at Styles’ on a legend that supposedly said that Hotel Savoy is a haunted landmark in a popular hill station of Mussoorie.
The state tourism department is also looking for buildings and sites that have the status of being haunted.
“We are collecting information … to package them as tourism material. Stories behind these places will be displayed on the premises,” minister Maharaj said.
Keeping that in mind, Uttarakhand tourism is now in the process of organizing special tours around supposedly haunted places like deserted mansions to cemeteries, hotels to buildings where people have witnessed any paranormal activity.
Three major sites that will be promoted along with others are:
Located on Abbott hill in the Champawat district of Uttarakhand, Abbey Bungalow is a mysterious place where many people were killed during the mid 1900s and till today several paranormal activities have been felt by the people who ever visited it.
Fortune The Savoy Hotel
The place is one of the major haunted hotels in India. The hotel is constructed over a place where it has been said that the Lady Garnet – spiritual healer, was poisoned and murdered. The mystery was never resolved and people believe that she still haunts the place because of it.
The Lambi Dehar Mines
The place has seen a number of misfortunes over the several decades and people have felt several kinds of weird things happening around it.
Though the authorities have chosen 15 sites so far including the above, they are also very much keen to hire guides and artists that can bring these haunted stories alive.
