Uttarakhand has immense possibilities for nature tourism, adventure tourism as well as medical tourism, said President Draupadi Murmu on Thursday in Dehradun.

While addressing the gathering at the civic reception, she said that Uttarakhand has been a source of wellness, both in terms of spiritual peace and physical healing.

Counted on Uttarakhand as a significant contributor to healthcare development, Murmu noted that there are many famous centres of naturopathy in Uttarakhand where a large number of people from India and abroad come and avail health benefits. 

She said, ‘"Uttarakhand is the source of many rivers that have irrigated and developed a large part of India. The Himalayas and Uttarakhand are embedded in the hearts and souls of Indians. Our sages have been taking shelter in the caves and caverns of the Himalayas in search of knowledge.’’ 

She expressed happiness that Uttarakhand is setting up new institutions in the fields of modern medicine and Ayurveda.

Murmu also virtually inaugurated and laid the foundation stones for various projects related to healthcare, power generation and supply, technical education and transport, on the occasion.

She also recalled powerful women who belong to the state like Rani Karnavati, forest conservators like Gaura Devi and like Bachendri Pal, the first woman to hoist the tricolour on Mount Everest.
