Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Kashmir tour, Mumbai to Kashmir, India

Our whole concept of steering clients off the main tourist circuits and into the rural regions of the subcontinent, to interact directly with local people is, in our opinion, responsible travel at its most immediate and effective. We stay with local families, visit local industries (learning how to milk a buffalo, make a sari, cook a meal) and call on local organisation to learn more about the problems of the region and how we might help. Not only does this allow local people and visitors to interact and learn about each others culture, it ensures that the revenue generated by tourism goes directly to local communities.

On this tour, which runs from Mumbai and the Gateway to India, through Rajasthan and up to Kashmir we involve our clients in various activities from tree planting schemes and school funding in the south to women’s self help cooperatives in the north.

As well as visiting and spending time learning about many of the local people through whose lands we will be passing – helping to milk a buffalo and turn it into lassi, visiting a self-help handicraft centre in Kashmir and cooking and eating a meal with a local family (all of which will be putting money directly into the local community) – as with all our trips we will be financially supporting local NGOs.

We employ local guides and drivers, stay in locally owned hotels and private homes, which again diverts important funds directly into the area. These are regions that have seen precious little from the boom in tourism, it is our aim to change this.

When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.
