Environment
Diwali is one of the biggest festivals celebrated in India. Diwali symbolizes the spiritual Victory of light over darkness good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. We admire for decorating houses with beautiful rangoli designs made of sand, flower petals, or other colorful materials to welcome in the deities. These rangoli designs are traditional and environment friendly and often passed down through families.

Celebration of Diwali includes lots of activity to the travellers from visiting local markets, shopping, decorations, preparing sweets. Diwali celebration includes the bursting of fire crackers which is not eco-friendly so we use the eco-friendly options such as Balloon Firecrackers, Inflated Paper Bags, Glow Sticks, Wish Lanterns which does not harm the environment.

We also do promote the rides through e-rickshaw, peddle rickshaw, battery van and walking tours are the famous tours on the streets of the Indian cities. Walking through the narrow local markets of the cities to purchase the accessories for Diwali celebrations is the highlight of this tour and contribution towards environment.

In Jaipur the visit at Amber fort via jeep or by a walk is highly recommended by us. we do not promote such rides like elephant ride in order to save this wonderful creature from this brutal behavior of human being.
