Tags: State News
The Uttarakhand Tourism Department is working on a plan to develop a 'Modi Circuit' in the Corbett Tiger Reserve.
During the shooting of a television program in the year 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to Corbett Tiger Reserve.
While shooting for an episode of 'Man Vs Wild' hosted by Bear Grylls on Discovery Channel, Modi did many adventurous activities here.
During the shooting, PM Modi and Bear Grylls crossed the Kosi river by making a makeshift raft.
After this PM Modi also passed through the path of a tiger, during which the Prime Minister was carrying a spear in his hand.
The "Modi Circuit" will boost tourism in the Corbett Tiger Reserve, which is already a popular tourist destination.
The spots inside the reserve will be the first to be identified by Modi and Grylls during the shoot.
The idea of developing a "Modi Circuit" in the Tiger Reserve first came up with Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj during his visit to Croatia, where a "Game of Thrones Tour Circuit" has been developed for tourists.
