The eco-tourism project at Jhumka natural water body inside Chandaka wildlife sanctuary is likely to start from September.
Construction of three bamboo huts and toilets near the water body, which sprawls over 10 acre, has been completed. Road work to the project site and installation of lights will also get over soon, official sources said.
“We have planned sitting arrangements for tourists near Jhumka. There will be kitchens and boating facilities after September,” said divisional forest officer (Chandaka) Manoj Mohapatra. He said the forest department would involve locals in the project by forming an ‘eco-development community’.
