The impact of jhum cultivation on the problems and prospects of tourism in Manipur and strategies to control the problems
Manipur has immense prospects for tourism as its natural flora and fauna are uncountable and artistically distributed along the surrounding hill ranges. But because of the traditional jhum cultivation of the ethnic tribes in the hills most of the hill ranges are now becoming a barren. However nowadays a lot of private tourist places have sprang up in the cultivable valley area which in turn diminishes the productivity of the state. Here some of the remedies of these problems are being discussed. It includes (i) Conservation of the cultivable valley area for plantation of paddy and other food plants for the survival of the locals of Manipur; (ii) Plantation of high productive mango plants in the barren area after jhum cultivation; and (iii) Shifting of private tourist places in the hill sides.
