update on travel for 2021

 

We are monitoring the current situation in India closely and hope to resume holidays for India-based guests from this autumn, following Covid-19 protocols. Bookings for international guests are available for 2022. We are offering flexible bookings. You will receive a full refund if we need to cancel your trip due to Covid-19 travel bans and we will follow all government guidelines in this regard.

We are communicating regularly with our partner village committees, trying to circulate reliable information and assess any requirements they might have. The safety of our partner communities and our guests is our prioroty and we thank all our guests for their continued support.

How we work to bring positive change for our partner communities

Practical steps towards sustainability

We use local materials, and local labour, in building our guesthouses, employ low-usage water systems, use solar power for water heatings and lamps in communities that remain 'off grid'. We encourage crop diversification so that communities grow fresh food for guests.

Direct benefits for host communities

Our kind of responsible tourism brings tangible economic and social benefits, with employment opportunities for young people who might otherwise emigrate to cities. The tourism income complements rather than replaces other income so that households do not abandon traditional work such as farming. We promote gender equality and social inclusion.
