Responsible Tourism

We believe in bringing the travellers to their dream destinations without causing ecological and social damage. Responsible tourism is one such rapidly growing global trend in which both the tourists and the local tour agencies work hand-in-hand in bringing down the negative impacts on environment, traditions and cultural heritage of the region.

We, at Maavalan make an effort to bring you closer to the local cultures,lifestyles, rituals and the environs whereby you get an insight of the life led in smaller regions. Rediscover how to experience nature and to be in it, feeling it, learning and protecting it rather than just looking at it. The world becomes a better place to live in when nature and people are in harmony with one another. Let’s just not see! Let’s make it an experience together!

Maavalan, on its part supports the clause of the GiveIndia, an NGO, nourishing a noble cause against the flight of global warming. Carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. Global warming and climate change are direct results of an increase in fuel consumption and subsequent release of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the air. Approximately 225 Kg. of CO2 is emitted for about 1200-1500 Km. of air distance & similar while travelling by other means of transport.

To help reduce Carbon Footprint when you travel with us, a small donation you make to Seva Mandir, an NGO that works in the field of a forestation in Rajasthan,India will lead to more trees being planted. For every tree planted, more that 20 Kg.of CO2 is absorbed yearly. Maavalan Travels will collect your donation amount and forward it to the NGO GiveIndia for further processing.

We encourage you to be a responsible traveller and help save the environment and safeguard your future. You would be presented with a dossier upon your arrival in India advising on the help you can extend and the contributions you can make.The donation amount of INR 26 is pre-selected. However, you may choose to make a higher donation and plant more trees.
