Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Kolkata to Kochi rail tour, India

Environment

When we think about the future we often think about the state our planet will be in for future generations. India is one country whose environment is really suffering due to population density and so when travelling there it’s important that we know we’re doing our best. Our company has operated with responsible tourism values since our inception. From an environmental perspective, our initiatives extend from our company offices to our tours with our tour leaders providing you with information about local environmental issues and suggestions of how we can best protect the local environment and culture. Excellent lessons to take home with you!

Low Impact Transportation: You’re not only seeing India in style but with so much train travel on this trip you’re doing your part in protecting the environment, rather than seeing it by car, bus or plane.

Community

Community is important and feeling like you’re a part of it is an integral part of travelling. On this trip you might opt to take a walking tour of Delhi guided by one of our Planeterra-supported former street kids. In Jaipur, choose to visit local artisans in a nearby village or in Udaipur, take a cooking class. Included in this trip, in Kalimpong, you’ll learn how to cook some delicious local cuisine and then enjoy it with a family. You’ll also experience the Darjeeling toy train and visit a few World Heritage Sites such as the Group of Monuments at Pattadakal, the Sun Temple at Konarak, Jantar Mantar in Jaipur, Agra Fort, Taj Mahal, the Darjeeling and Nilgiri Mountain Railways, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (historic train station) and Elephanta Caves, and the Western Ghats.
