Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Golden Triangle in Northern India and Kerala in South India are very popular tourism circuits. As they are popular they get a huge influx of travelers in peak season. In order to make the trip more sustainable, we take following steps:

1. Utilise hotels that are socially and environmentally responsible: Hotel groups like Taj, Samode, Oberoi, CGH have worked on optimization of Energy and water consumption. Using LED lights, having proper insulations, optimum shielding of room are some of the steps taken in this regard.

2. Houseboats that are environmentally conscious: We use the houseboat company that has best environment practices. The houseboats are designed along the lines of traditional rice barges, or kettuvallam in local language. The hulls of the houseboats are made in the ancient traditional manner from jackfruit tree wood, with no nails—all the wood is stitched together and sealed with a natural waterproofing method made from fish oil. Within the hull, under the main deck is all the equipment that makes the houseboats ecologically responsible, including efficient engines, fresh water holding tanks, and other specialty fittings.

3. Emission tested vehicles: We have emission tested vehicles for the tours. These are as per government norms. Also, our vehicles are regularly serviced so that the fuel utilisation is efficient. This reduces carbon footprint

People

The hotels that we select work with local communicates in which they operate. CGH group, is aware that local communities are a part of the social fabric that bind them. They reach out to the locals in numerous ways that include employment and a host of social, economic and cultural interactions that mutually benefit and strengthen ties between them. Education, healthcare and tourism are some of the areas in which the group has taken a lot of initiatives. The hotels employ locals in various capacities. Their intimate knowledge of the region and its unique ways give the hotel an advantage that goes beyond good business sense. It fosters a lasting relationship that is rooted in mutual respect, support, sharing and growth for all concerned.

The Houseboat company employs locals as its staff - Also the food is procured from nearby farms that include rice, fishes, vegetables, thus offering indirect employment.

Kochi, Jaipur is known for local art forms. In order to promote local art and support artisans, we arrange visits to their shops in consultation with the guests.
