He said launching of the website will facilitate the foreign tourists as well as the domestic, and will accrue a lot of revenue to the Park.  The website will be improved to the extent that all bookings and reservations regarding visit to the Park will be facilitated through this website soon.

Ayurveda and Cooperation Minister Karan Singh stressed for improving connectivity in the Park.
