Tulips are blooming at the tulip garden developed by the state government in Munsyari area of Pithoragarh district. Happy at the development, chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat shared photos of the tulip garden on Saturday. “I am happy to share the first pics of the successful pilot of my dream project- Munsyari based tulip garden. Set amidst the backdrop of Panchahuli ranges, this garden will be one the biggest tulip gardens in the world and will transform tourism in the Munsyari region,” tweeted Rawat.
The CM further stated that, a part of the Munsyari nature education and eco park centre spread across 30 hectares is being developed as a tulip garden. This is separate from the tulip garden being developed in Pithoragarh. At the park in Munsyari, visitors will be able to stay in huts and tents. In Pithoragarh, a tulip garden is being developed on 50 hectare area near the famous Mostamanu temple. Both these tulip gardens, all weather road, Pithoragarh air connectivity and the Dharchula- Lipulekh motor road recently inaugurated by the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will help develop tourism in the region, stated the CM.
The research wing of the forest department had conducted suitability trial for tulip in Munsyari. A tourist destination and base station for treks to many glaciers like Millam, Ralam and Namik, Munsyari lies at the base of the great Himalayan mountain range at an elevation of about 2,200 metres. The cool nights makes Munsyari the perfect landscape for tulip cultivation. The soil in this area is continuously drained, creating perfect growing conditions for tulip bulbs, which thrive in well drained but moist soil. The tulip germination and flowering in Himalayan climate was successfully tested by the forest department’s research wing head Sanjiv Chaturvedi.
