Goa’s tourist footfall reduces during the monsoon. But with the new initiative by the Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC), this might soon change or at least improve the numbers.
As per Goa state government’s recent announcement about introducing “Monsoon Trekking” program to enhance hinterland tourism in the region, you can expect different types of tours to open up in Goa.
In theory, this program is definitely going to work, because Goa is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Over 80 lakhs tourists who visit this place annually mostly come to relax on the beaches and enjoy the sun beside the sea. Introducing hinterland tourism at this point becomes crucial, as it is something new for the visitors and shows them more about Goa’s culture and other attractions. Also, beaches are found everywhere, but in the hinterland, there is always something new to discover and explore, even something unique to Goa.
It is expected that this Monsoon Trekking program will increase Goa’s revenue and improve its economy as a whole. Since it will have new requirements–such as tour guides and trekking experts–it will also generate employment for the local residents.
