popular pilgrimage and tourism spots in India – the Uttarakhand circuit, including Badrinath.
"We are working along with our partners in that region to build awareness for the areas that continue to be safe and secure to visit in order to support local economy," said MakeMyTrip Co-Founder and CEO-India Rajesh Magow.
With an average year for hospitality on the way out, the sector is hoping for a brighter 2014.
"2014 looks bright as the long-term growth perspective for India's travel market remains robust. Indian aviation market will see new airlines launching operations – Tata-SIA, AirAsia India and Etihad-Jet Airways. These new investments will definitely have a positive impact on the landscape of Indian travel and tourism industry," Magow said.
The hospitality industry is hoping that as the sun sets on 2013 and 2014 knocks at its door, things will be brighter.
