VILLAGE TOURISM

Once Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation quoted that “India lives in its village”.

An Indian village is the true reflection of rich culture and tradition of India. And, the best way to peep into a bucolic ambiance of an Indian village is by indulging yourself in a village tour. As the name reflects, village tourism means a tourism that deals with a tour to rustic environment of a village. Similar to other forms of tourism, Village tourism is also a part and parcel of Indian tourism industry.

Village tourism aids a traveller you to have an insightful look into a different world of calm and serenity. Chirping birds, mud-plastered walls and thatched roofs of village huts, big shaded trees, green patches of land and zig-zag kutcha roads are the prime facet of an Indian Village. And, if you have the desire to immerse yourself in the nostalgia of a village surrounding than you must opt for Village tourism.
