MYTHS ABOUT RURAL TOURISM IN INDIA – DEBUNKED!

Rural Tourism isn’t safe

 

Safety has no defined paradigms. The chances of getting mugged on the streets of a city are equal to that of getting robbed in the vicinity of a village.

But the sense of community and hospitality villages offer, cities, in general, don’t. This argument makes the rural mass more particular about their actions than the urban mass.

Although, it finally boils down to the indulgence and safety checks done by the organization with whom you are traveling. And also on the briefing and training, they have provided to the locals. So, do your researches well on the travel agency before traveling to the remote parts of the country and ask questions on the same.

Travel to rural India is uncomfortable

 

No, that’s completely not the case. Rural destinations are too remotely developed. Not all villages can suddenly turn into rural retreats. It takes a lot of effort and years of training for them to achieve this tag.

So, don’t worry the cases won’t be that extreme to cause any sort of discomfort to you. Moreover, we expect little adjustments from your end as well. Still, you won’t be asked to sleep on the floor or cater to the nature call in nature itself. So, chill!

Note: If you have any query or confusion regarding the same, just confirm it with your rural travel provider. Trust us, they will provide you in hand information and solutions which will help you plan accordingly.

Food and water provided won’t be hygienic

Okay, now this is one myth that needs to shut down now, literally. Yes, it can happen that your body won’t feel at utmost ease (keeping in mind it will be a different universe for you) but hygiene will never be an issue.

Just give it a thought before you come to a conclusion. If you cannot just answer these questions in your head, where will you find deadly diseases, in cities or in villages? In Cities, right? Who is healthier, a lodger of the city or that’s of a village? Of the Village, any day, right? Then, still, why is there any room for confusion?

Rural travel in India is all the same.

 

This myth holds no good. As we have told you before, each rural India trip is unique. You will not find similar experiences even if you pan through the villages of the same states.

Why? Then the answer is simple. The culture and living conditions vary drastically within a stretch of a few kilometers in India.

As a result, the inhabitants have developed their own ways of dealing with the situations and topography, which finally turned out as a culture.
