OUR VISION

 

‘Konkan’ is and has been a magical word that evokes images and memories of great people, great places and remarkable but distinct natural features. Konkan is like a multi-faceted diamond, which has been neglected over the past.

The new tourism policies and the demands of the changing yet stressful life style have necessitated a serious thought over the development of tourism in Ratnagiri and Sindhudurga district. Each Tehsil in both the districts boasts of a specialty distinct from each another.

Chiplun is comparatively urbanized and yet retains its natural beauty. It is a place blessed with the beautiful river Vashishthi with its perennial water source from Koyana Hydro-project. Besides being centrally located on the Mumbai-Goa Highway, Chiplun is surrounded by the Sahyadri mountain range with its forts and virgin forests. Parshuram Temple, Hedavi Ganapati temple, Dervan Shivasrushti etc. are the prominent pilgrim places near Chiplun. The nearby beaches like Guhagar, Velaneshwar, and Karambavane have the potential for water sports.

All these features make Chiplun a potential global tourist place with ample opportunities for employment. The Global Chiplun Tourism Multipurpose co op Society aims to exploit the natural resources, simultaneously, to conserve them and to utilize them constructively.

The objectives of the Society are as follow:

  • To develop tourist spots in Ratnagiri District
  • To develop and help in creating lodging and boarding facilities and building mobile restaurants and stalls
  • To implement Govt. schemes for development of tourism
  • To create a database of the information on historical places and artifacts and to spread awareness about them
  • To create adventure sports and water sport facilities; and to organize beach festival, back-water festivals etc.
  • To create infrastructural facilities like transportation, hotels, good roads etc, to accelerate tourism activity
  • To make MoU s and collaborations with foreign tourism industry
  • To develop the concept of agro-tourism
  • To create awareness about pollution and polluting bodies
  • To preserve, develop and conserve the natural resources like forests, rivers, creeks, animal species etc.
  • To make people aware about the existing eco-system with its mangroves, wildlife , flora and fauna
  • To help local people to build fish farms and prawns farms
  • To create employment for the local, skilled and un-skilled youth
  • To prevent  brain drain and out-migration of people by creating employment in their locality

To achieve our goal, we, at the Society will try to build a human pool of volunteers and sponsors. We are sure to complete the proposed projects like Ropeway to Parshuram, Crocodile Safari, beautification and conservation of the Vashishthi Valley will be completed successfully. The Government and non-government agencies will be duly involved and a massive change in the landscape of Chiplun will be visible in near future.
