1- DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL FOR KEMPTY FALL.

OBSERVATION- Kempty Fall area the first impressions were or congestion due to lack of designated parking space. There was an absence of proper signage showing pathways and access points to the fall. The Pathway was in disrepair the Bath Pond is insufficient in size, which can be increased by constructing a pool on the left side of the bridge below the lower station of ropeway. There are too many shops temporary structures around the bath area, which gives a feeling of claustrophobia. These areas need to be opened up and only tourists sitting places to be created. The shops structures should be relocated far away from the main fall and bath area.

DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL FOR KEMPTY FALL / DHANOULTI (Rs. 424.00 Lac)

The existing bath area is insufficient for the no. of tourist that visit Kampty Fall, this no. is increasing every year and the ropeway to the fall has also increased the no. of Visitors. I visited the site along with the D.M and identified that three new bathing areas could be developed.This requires a detailed survey and planning of the area. Widening of bath area at main-fall Development of three-stage extension of bathing area. 355.00 Increased space for bathing activity and Improves Tourism
The access pathway is presently damaged and difficult to navigate Present path way as well as other path ways leading to campty fall needs to be renovated. Renovation of other pathways connecting to Kempty-fall 2.00 Easy access/tourist convenience

2- EVELOPMENT PROPOSAL FOR KUNJAPURI.

OBSRVATION- On my visit to temple via Narendra Nagar. This being my visit. I had difficulty in locating the turning from the main road. There is an urgent requirement of Signage en-route as well as a gate signage at the turning point. The road from the main highway to the temple is in good condition. The wild shrubs along the road need to be cut. At the base point of the temple there are no facilities of tourist shelter and public convenience. Though water is a problem in this area. I still recommend construction of public toilets which can be supplied water through tankers at least during the peak time of summers as well as Navratras.A shoe house is required at the entrance of the temple complex. The tank near the entrance is in disrepair and cracked at various places. There is a Rainwater Harvesting Tank which is insufficient an additional tank may be constructed. I met the manager Pandit Dharamsingh Bhandri (Ph. No. 9719265925) who showed me the location of toilets that may be build behing the temple in my view the area behind the temple is very steep and construction is not viable. I could locate a good spot on the right of the step going down as there is a water storage tank on the left and plain land on the right (at 100 step) the stairs passage may be covered to provide shelter to the pilgrims.

The Plasda Lake at Narendra Nagar is a very scenic location where a tourist Picnic spot can be developed. Catering not only to the pilgrims on the yatra route but also to the tourists on a pleasure trip. The lake requires to be developed with pathways, electrification, signage, public toilets, benches, Children Park, a small restaurant and picnic huts. The Neer Waterfall at link road is also very attractive and an all season fall. this is already attractive tourists. The volume of tourists will increase once it is beautified and proper signage is provided. the acces road to this spot needs to be strengthened and designated parking space to be earmarked near the fall.

On my visit to the temple via Mussoorie my first impressions were lack of Proper signage and tourist rest points en-route and at Kaddukhal. Public conveniences like toilets and drinking water facility arte non-existent. There is no designated parking space forcing vehicles to park along the road. The walk way is broken at various locations and needs substantial repairs. Although it is a long uphill trek there is no shelter of rest points along the way. Horses ply on the route and are a nuisance to the pedestrians. They also cause bad smell on the route. Many old and disabled people trek up for the pilgrimage.
