Accessible Golden Triangle tour in India
Description of Accessible Golden Triangle tour in India
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetNo plastic: Where ever its possible we use refillable bottles for water consumption. We make sure the water is filtered except that it comes in Big Refillable Cans. Thus minimize usage of single usage plastic. While shopping also we provide cloth / reusable bags to our travellers so that they dont have to use single use plastic bags.
No litter: Whenever we are out in nature, we make sure that all our waste is collected and processed through appropriate channels and disposed off in an environmentally friendly manner.
No animal rides: We do not promote or sell animal rides like elephant rides, camel or horse rides. We instead take our travellers to an elephant rescue centre or a bear rescue centre to spread awareness about the cruelty that exists against animals and their wonderful rescue stories. On this trip, all our guests are taken to the Elephant Rescue center where in they closely witness the stories of survival of the elephants, who were earlier employed and treated badly for recreation and religious purposes.
The payment from the visit helps the Wildlife SOS rescue center to sustain themselves. The guests also have an opportunity to volunteer at the rescue center and do some daily chores for the elephants.
Sustainable Properties: We prefer properties which have implemented zero waste policy as much as possible. Where rain water harvesting and recycling are a way of life.
Minimal carbon footprint: We also use vehicles or medium of transport (of course we make sure that its accessible for each disability) which has the least carbon footprint.
PeopleWe always make sure to benefit the local communities through our travels. Whether its offering unique experiences to the travellers by taking them to local artisans and witness the art forms being made and getting the artisans paid for showcasing their work. This helps the artisans not to abandon their native villages/towns and art forms and stay and practice the same. Or else these art forms would be lost somewhere in history.
This conservation of art forms plays a big role in our responsible tourism practices because every state in India has a different culture, tradition and innumerable art forms and languages which would go obsolete if we don’t preserve it now.
We prefer to use homestays or traditional old houses or bungalows (of course we have to keep accessibility of the place in mind) which imbibe the local culture of the destination and often are family run. This helps in heritage and cultural conservation at the bottom line.
Working with local communities: At all our travel destinations we work with local people for the very reason that they know their habitat the best and we do not want them to move to bigger cities in search for employment. We employ for our tourism projects and train them as per global service standards so that they have a source of income at their native place itself. And India being such a diverse country and every state having a totally different language and culture and tradition, it makes perfect sense to work with the people who are natives as they would be able to provide the most authentic experiences.
We take our guests to show our support to the Sheroes Cafe in Agra which is run by Acid Attack survivors. The cafe is their livelihood and a way to rise above the adversity and claim their equitable space in the society.
All our guests are taken to local markets and cooperatives in Delhi and Jaipur instead of fancy malls for authentic shopping experience. This is our way to support the small artisans and businesses who are often exploited by big traders and businessmen.
Few of the meals in Delhi are at over 100 year old food outlets like the famous jalebi wala and Al Jawahar who even though are most authentic are losing out on business to fancy high end restaurants. Through our visit we support them.
