Chief Minister Shri N. Biren Singh today inaugurated a tourist resort at Nungshangkhong Hungpung, Ukhrul during his maiden visit to the district.
The tourist lodge is located just near Nungsangkhong Bridge. It is a part of the Integrated Tourist Circuit for Imphal Mahadev – Lambui – Finch Corner – Hundung – Jessami, Manipur. It is developed by Manipur Tourism with financial assistance from the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India and executed by MTDC. At around 15 kms away from Ukhrul town, the tourism spot has already become a favourite picnic spot for the people around the region.
Besides, the Tourism Department has taken up several initiatives in Ukhrul particularly in the areas like Shirui Hills to attract tourists and to develop it into a tourist worthy destination, given its unique location and the rich cultural heritage of the tribals living in Ukhrul district.
Since, the best form of Tourism that could be implemented at Shirui is eco-tourism, projects have been taken up at Shirui Hills and adjoining areas of Ukhrul district combining the concept of Eco-lodges, Cafeteria, Trekking, Adventure Tourism and Rain Shelter under the Integrated Tourist Destination at Shirui Hills and Adjoining areas, Ukhrul District, Manipur with MDS as the work agency.
