Tourist are banned to walk in Doddabetta Peak

A rise in the variety of Indian gaurs in the Doddabetta region, has forced the Forest Department to ban vacationers from walking a 2km stretch to the Doddabetta Peak, one among the leading tourist attractions here. So far, vacationers could walk to the peak from the Forest Department check post on the main road. Now, they are going to have to either rent vehicles or even use shuttle services provided by the department to get there. Indian gaurs are noticed frequently along the stretch, and there is certainly an issue that visitors could get wounded, or even worse, in a confrontation with a wild animal, The forest department stated it was aware of the issues and was trying to think up strategies to take care of the traffic bound for the peak throughout the tourism season this summer.
