Shimla. While presiding over the review meeting of Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) at Oak Over, Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu said that the corporation would open three super-exclusive hotels along the Kiratpur-Manali four-lane highway in the future.
With this, tourists and other passengers will get state-of-the-art facilities.
