Travel: We encourage people to use the existing modes of transport, which is local trains and the local jeeps, to ensure lesser carbon emissions. The villagers showcase their bio diversity to the tourists; this promotion creates awareness in the minds of tourists of the brilliance of natures creativity and diversity and at the same time incentivizes the local community to conserve their biodiversity. We also make use of solar power for lighting up our cottages, tents, bathrooms and toilets.There is practically no use of electricity and if at all we use any power we use solar power. All the waste generated during a Grassroutes journey is handed over to the tourist, before they leave the village in order to reduce the tourist footprint in the village.

Description

Grassroutes is an organization committed to helping the urban world meet and discover rural India. It seeks to do this by developing community managed tourism that will enable people from across the world to experience Indian villages in their most authentic forms.

We seek to be a bridge between the seemingly unconnected urban and rural cultures.

Our Values:

• Respect for all communities and their diverse cultures • Absolute trust in the brotherhood of mankind • Commitment to rural communities, enabling them to be self-sufficient, empowering their local economies • Respect for natural resources and awareness that will help conserve and save our depleting natural heritage

Our projects are located in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. About 4hrs away from Mumbai. Our head office is in Mumbai.
