For Uttarakhand, prison tourism appears to be the newest trend. For 500 each night, the Haldwani prison in Uttrakhand is promising a “real jail experience.”
Work is being done to turn a section of the former prison into lodging for “tourists” seeking a genuine “jail feel.”
The jail routinely receives “orders” from superiors to permit “recommended persons” to spend a few hours in the jail quarters, wearing prison uniforms, and eat the meals prepared in the jail kitchen, according to deputy jail superintendent Satish Sukhija.
Officials and the deputy jail superintendent were motivated by this, therefore they proposed this project.
Tourists seeking adventure or attempting to cross items off their bucket lists could also be additional prospective guests.
In 1903, more than a century ago, the Haldwani prison was erected. A historic armory and six staff quarters made up the abandoned part that is now the new tourist attraction.
