Dehradun,
Aug
5:

The
Uttarakhand
tourism
department
is
working
on
a
plan
to
develop
a
“Modi
circuit” at
the
Corbett
Tiger
Reserve,
covering
the
places
visited
by
Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
while
shooting
for
a
television
programme
in
2019.

Modi
had
undertaken
a
slew
of
adventure
activities
while
shooting
for
an
episode
of
“Man
vs
Wild”,
hosted
by
Bear
Grylls
on
Discovery
channel.
During
the
shoot,
Modi
and
Grylls
crossed
the
Kosi
river
on
a
makeshift
raft
and
walked
through
a
tiger
trail,
with
the
prime
minister
holding
a
spear
in
his
hand.

Uttarakhand plans Modi circuit for tourists to visit PMs Man vs Wild trail in Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve

“Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
is
a
big
influencer
of
our
times.
Places
that
he
visits
generate
great
interest
among
people,”
Colonel
Ashvini
Pundir,
Additional
CEO
of
the
adventure
sports
wing
of
the
Uttarakhand
Tourism
Development
Board,
told
PTI
on
Friday.

He
cited
the
example
of
a
cave
at
Kedarnath
where
the
prime
minister
meditated
a
few
years
ago.
“It
became
so
popular
that
people
started
booking
it
months
in
advance
to
visit
the
place,”
Pundir
said.

The
“Modi
circuit”
will
further
boost
tourism
at
the
Corbett
Tiger
Reserve,
which
is
already
a
popular
tourist
destination,
he
added.

However,
the
details
of
the
plan
are
still
being
worked
out,
Pundir
said.

The
spots
inside
the
reserve
visited
by
Modi
and
Grylls
during
the
shoot
will
first
be
identified.
Then
it
will
be
seen
what
arrangements
can
be
made
to
take
tourists
to
those
spots,
Pundir
said.

The
idea
of
developing
a
“Modi
circuit”
in
the
tiger
reserve
first
came
to
Uttarakhand
Tourism
Minister
Satpal
Maharaj
during
a
trip
to
Croatia,
where
a
“Game
of
Thrones
tour
circuit”
has
been
developed
for
tourists,
covering
the
locations
where
the
popular
television
series
was
shot.
