Responsible tourism: India rail tour, Southern India & the East Coast
More and more, India is experiencing significant impact from global warming, feeling the direct effects of their diminishing ozone layer above. Itís important to our company that we not only educate and influence our travelers to positively impact the environment, but better yet, we must begin by setting a positive example at home. We use local clean energy providers wherever possible, we support and encourage our staff to use public transportation and carpool wherever possible. We offset emissions from all corporate flights and our marine vessel, and encourage our travelers to do so by providing an online platform through Sustainable Travel International.
Low Impact Transportation: Getting around as locals do gives you a unique insight to the everyday way of life in India. Our rail trips allow our travelers to really see the country while simultaneously being better for the environment.
Many World Heritage Sites are designated for protection so that all people can share in these fascinating and historical wonders for generations to come. Talk about protecting community! Delve deep into Indian culture in Puri where the Sun Temple of Konarek is located as well as Mamallapuramís Shore Temple. Take in the breathtaking scenery as you ride the Nilgiri Railway, a part of the World Heritage Mountain Railways of India. Plus, on this trip, get right in the community when you stay overnight with a local family in a Kerala Backwaters homestay.
