Mountain homestays is a community empowerment initiative that focuses on promoting rural destinations by developing homestays in partnership with the locals. The focus is on reaching out to communities living in the remotest parts of the Himalayan belt in India, such as in Ladakh region in northern India, to promote sustainable and inclusive progress.
Homestays based tourism has multifold benefits to the local communities. It allows a consistent flow of travelers to the rural economies thus creating multiple opportunities of livelihood for the locals. By creating livelihood opportunities at the doorsteps of these isolated villages, we can help curb the major issues of urban migration and cultural loss while enabling their aspirations for a promising future.
