Our Ecotourism Practices

 80% of the staff are villagers from in and around our village.

 Besides paying above-average wages and gratuities to our employees, a savings account is opened in their names to which a part of our profits is credited, based on performance.

 Local staff and villagers consulted before embarking on new projects.

 We encourage all visitors to plant a tree before leaving.

 Educating the locals on the importance of preserving the forest and the pristine environment and making our visitors know of their contribution to this worthy cause by staying here.

 Supporting nearby schools which face difficulties in obtaining state-funding for bare necessities.

 Funding the poor/handicapped to pursue their studies and in a few cases….., to survive.

 Funding community projects.

 Buying barren lands of our neighbors for re-forestation.

 Using natural building-material available in our lands for construction of Lodges etc.

 Doing all our purchasing from local shops situated within 5 Km from us.
