update on travel for 2021

 

We are delighted to resume holidays for our domestic guests and we are now welcoming India-based travellers to our villages, safely and following Covid-19 protocols.
We are taking bookings for international guests for travel from this autumn, offering flexible bookings. You will receive a full refund if we need to cancel your trip due to Covid-19 travel bans in your home or destination country and will follow all government guidelines in this regard.

  We are working closely with our partner communities. Please follow us on Instagram to find images and updates from all over India, as well as from our villages in Nepal and Bhutan. We thank all our guests for the support they show us by choosing to visit our partner communities.

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.
