Nestled at a height of approximately 3,800 m, Jadung is a pretty border village that has frozen in time, but will likely come back to life with the new initiative.
With this, Jadung becomes the first of the five villages that will be rehabilitated, and will also be created into a sustainable tourism destination for trekking, astro tourism, nature camps, hiking, and more. As per the reports, most of Jadung’s inhabitants were displaced during the Indo-China War.
Shri Satpal Maharaj, Minister of Tourism, Irrigation, Culture, PWD, Government of Uttarakhand,stated that they are delighted to announce Jadung as Uttarakhand’s latest tourism destination, which will offer great opportunity to visitors to experience the unique culture and beauty of Uttarakhand.
UTDB’s involvement in this initiative will help encourage sustainable tourism practices in the region, and will also lead to the conservation of the local environment, culture and community.
Further this initiative will aim to showcase the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Uttarakhand, and create more opportunities for tourism in the state, and will likely reduce the pressure on popular tourist destinations and promote sustainable tourism across the state.
