The state government is also encouraging cultural tourism, mining tourism, waterfall tourism and tourism across various picturesque spots and developing infrastructure for the purpose, Chief Minister Raghubar Das told PTI.
"We are not working one one sector, rather we are working on five to six sectors in parallel," the chief minister said.
Das said Jharkhand would be developing tourism sector in phases and in the first phase, it was committed to develop four to five international tourism spots.
"Whatever important tourist places are in the state they have been connected by good roads, and in the first 1,000 days of the state government, roads have reached all the tourist places. This has helped in the increase of national and international tourists coming to the tourist spots of the state," he said.
Similarly, the number of domestic tourists had increased by almost 65 per cent in the last three years.
Das said tourist locations were needed to be peaceful to attract national and international visitors and the state government was working towards ensuring that those spots remained free from militant activities.
The chief minister said the state was also planning circuit tourism in different regions. The state was readying free bus services at Bodhgaya and Tarapith.
