4 Reasons for Poor Performance of Sikkim Adventure Tourism Segment

Sikkim could not cash in on its adventure tourism attractions. In fact, the segment is slowly growing in a haphazard manner for the following reasons:

  1. Lack of long-term planning and vision for the segment

  2. Unprofessionalism

  3. Unhealthy competition

  4. Extremely asymmetrical concentration of the biz: Only a few adventure destinations draw majority of the business. For example, only one trekking route -Yuksam-Dzongri-Goechelaroute – accounts for most of the trekking revenue.

These problems are not only depleting revenues of the Sikkim adventure tourism segment but also affecting product and service quality. The problems will have grave consequences if not rectified in time.
