    Responsible and Sustainable Tourism

    As our responsibility towards the society and country we offer many Tour plan designed keeping Responsible and Sustainable Tourism in mind. When you take a responsible holiday you are ensuring that the money you spend stays locally, which might mean staying in a family owned lodge on the edge of a river, instead of a multinational chain behind gates. Discovering diverse eateries which not only source their food close to home but also celebrate local cuisine as part of their culture. This might be in a remote Tribal area in India like Jhabua, Dhar, Barwani etc., a Valley in dense Forest-Patalkot, in Tamia Thesil or near to Kanha National Park in Mandla or going river rafting or fishing with a local people, who share all his local secret spots.

    In support of responsible Tourism Planet Dreamz have come up with few Tour Itineraries based on Tribal Tourism and Rural Tourism which helps the tribal community and villagers to promote their local handicraft.  Handicrafts play very important role in representing the culture and traditions of any country or region. Handicrafts are a substantial medium to preserve of rich traditional art, heritage and culture, traditional skills and talents which are associated with people’s lifestyle and history. Handicrafts are hugely important in terms of economic development. They provide ample opportunities for employment even with low capital investments and become a prominent medium for foreign earnings. Other than Handicraft we conduct many activities which helps the local to earn good from our tours like Tribal or Folk dance, Jungle/ Nature Walk, Community events, Local Cousin food festival, Village Stay,  etc. for Tourists.
