Goa Minister Opposes Waterfall Entry Ban Amid Monsoon

Goa Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte criticized a circular by the forest department

Goa , 18 June, 2024- Goa Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte expressed strong objections to a recent circular issued by the forest department that bans visitors from entering waterfalls during the monsoon season. The minister highlighted that this directive undermines the state’s efforts to promote hinterland tourism, which is essential for the local economy.

Speaking to reporters, Khaunte stressed that while tourist safety is a valid concern, banning entry is not the solution. He suggested that the state can designate certain waterfalls as safe spots for tourists while restricting access to others where the risk of drowning is high. This balanced approach would ensure safety without harming tourism.
