We carefully choose hotels that run there operations according to that low impact policy on environment and policy include recycling the water; adopt water harvesting system, proper management of waste. We also encourage the hotels in countryside, family run hotels, Fort and Heritage hotels we use by giving guaranteed minimum bookings in per year to use local products whenever possible; favour biodegradable, recyclable or reusable products, pay attention to processes involved in the preparation of the products, purchase appliances and other equipment that are designed for minimum water and energy consumption, willing to spend a little more in order to protect the environment, ask suppliers to make sure about their practices regarding environment protection and working conditions, and make them understand that the corrective environmental actions represent an investment of less than 100000 Indian Rupees and an almost immediate payback (in less than a year).

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The wide variety of different experiences of place, people and food enjoyed within a relatively short period. The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Time spent agreeing a personal itinerary and checking the hotels booked is always well spent. Everyone wants something slightly different and a tour organiser will need advice to provide the best mix.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I hope so. Money spent in the local economy, particularly with smaller traders and guesthouses will always be beneficial.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent.

Thank you for your review. Your itinerary really did benefit the local traders. From the accommodations maintained by local villagers to those purchases of fresh items locally, shopping at the local vegetable market and the veg bought from small vegetable shop and the vegetables cooked for you in your of countryside accommodations where you stayed.
