Uttarakhand government is all set to host the Tehri Lake Festival, which is considered as Asia’s biggest lake festival. To be hosted from March 17 to 19, the festival will see a host of new activities coming up in order to boost tourism in the region.  The Tehri Special Area Tourism Development Authority and tourism department have already started preparations to host this three-day festival. The government’s focus now is on developing the lake as an international tourist spot.

In a bid to boost adventure tourism in the state, the visitors will be able to get a glimpse of adventure sports and also can take part in sports, such as paragliding, scuba diving, canoeing, hot air balloon, parasailing boat, kayaking, rock climbing, rappelling, all-terrain biking, and much more.  The festival will also see foreign participants showcasing their skills. Besides, another highlight of the festival this year will be the Swiss tents that have been set up to facilitate the stay of the guests. Reportedly, the Uttarakhand Government is planning to host four big festivals in Ramnagar, Tehri, Auli, and Rishikesh before March.
