No new entries, hotel reservations in Mussoorie and Nainital on New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve revelers and tourists looking to spend the evening in the beautiful cities of Mussoorie and Nainital will have to change their plans if they don’t book hotels in advance as the authorities have decided to ban entry on the 30th and December 31 for those who don’t book in advance to limit traffic chaos.
In a statement issued by the government, officials said the decision was taken to prevent overcrowding and manage traffic properly at these tourist spots.
The decision was made during a review meeting on New Year’s Eve traffic arrangements chaired by Uttarakhand Police Chief Ashok Kumar.
Police officers from Dehradun, Pauri Garhwal, Tehri Garhwal and Nainital districts joined the meeting via videoconference.
