Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: India by Rail, Northeast & Darjeeling

Environment

India’s population density has a severe impact on its environment and they continue to struggle to minimize the effects. As a responsible travel company we certainly do not want to add to the problem. We begin at home, operating with responsible tourism values since our inception. From an environmental perspective, our initiatives extend from our company offices to our tours. Our head office and stores are powered by a local green energy provider, we encourage cleaner transportation methods for staff, and we purchase all supplies from a local green business supplier.

Low Impact Transportation: Our rail trips allow our travelers to see the most of India while being better for the environment. Using public transport is the most sustainable way to go – after walking and cycling of course!

Community

Traveling in India is all about community. With its dense population and its abundance of cultural sites you can’t help but be immersed in it every day. On this trip, in Kalimpong, you’ll learn how to cook some delicious local cuisine and then enjoy it with a family. You’ll also visit a few World Heritage Sites such as the Agra Fort, the Taj Mahal, and the wonderful toy train on the Darjeeling Railway. If you choose to extend your stay in Delhi a few more sites can be added to your list: Humayun’s Tomb, the Qutb Minar and its Monuments and the Red Fort Complex. Many world heritage sites are designated for protection so that all people may share in these fascinating and historical wonders for generations to come.

Reviewed on 16 Jun 2019 by

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


Contrary to expectations I really enjoyed the overnight train journeys. Traveling with the locals was a great experience and gave us chance to chat and get to know fellow travelers

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


Be prepared for a shock when you first arrive. India appears at first as a chaotic crowded, noisy, messy and smelly place but somehow everything work. Be patient and try not to let the chaos and noise get to you, after a few days you will get used to it and it becomes the norm. Although the traffic is truly chaotic there is no road rage and at no time did we feel unsafe. The food is great but we stayed away from the delicious smelling street food, drank only purified or
bottled water. We left without contracting Delhi Belly. Local beer and wine are surprisingly good.

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


Definitely benefited the local people but not so sure about conservation or reducing environmental impact. India is very much third world and these are only just starting to become relevant.

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


A very tiring but very rewarding experience. An excellent itinerary
