Manipur Tourism was conferred the ‘Most Promising New Destination Award’ on the 91st Travel and Tourism Fair (TTF) organised by Fairfest Media Limited at Nehru Centre, Mumbai. TTF was held from September 2 to 5.

It is for the first time that Manipur Tourism has been recognised at a national level. Manipur Tourism competed with 400 other stakeholders from across the world to get the award, according to a press release.

Manipur government Tourism Department led by KK Chettry, Tourism Commissioner and other team members – which included L Ibochoubi, Tourist Officer, L Surjit, President Manipur Mountaineering and Trekking Association, HRK Sharma, MD Seven Sisters Holidays, Paonam Sommykanta, Manager, Classic Hotel, Santosh Shekhar, Manager, Business Development and Shija Hospital – left no stone unturned to showcase Manipur as the most preferred tourist destination.

On the concluding day of the fest, President, Travel Agents Association of India, M Iqbal Mulla, Chairman and CEO, Fairfest Media Ltd, Sanjiv Agarwal, and Executive Director , Fairfest Media Ltd, Rajiv Agarwal, graced the function as the Chief Guest, Guest of Honour, and President respectively.

Talking to media, KK Chettry said that this award will surely motivate Manipur Tourism to put more relentless efforts to attract more tourists.

One of the seven sisters of India, Manipur is famous for tourist places like Keibul Lamjao National Park, a Ramsar site which is the only place where ‘sangai’ (antlered deer) live, Loktak Lake, one of the major fresh water lakes in northeast India; then there is Ema market, where only women are shopkeepers.

However, due to militancy problems, tourists are shying away from visiting the state.
