Matheran: Experience nature like they did before automobiles

Not so far from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, in the Sahyadri range of Western Ghats is Matheran. A cosy, quiet and beautiful little hill station at the elevation of 2,600 ft above sea level. Matheran is the smallest village in India and one of the very few place in the world that do not allow any vehicles. The second you step into Matheran, you feel like you've opened a gate to the past. The name of the village translates to "overhead forest" and is highly popular among tourists for a short trip, spectacular views and serenity.

Best National Parks from Around the World for Nature Lovers

With increased urbanisation, people have lost connection with nature. We are so occupied in our work and life that we do not have time to appreciate what is around us.

Top Indian States that Encourage Ecotourism in the Country

India is a country blessed with diverse physical features such as the snowy Himalayas, evergreen forests, dry deserts and one of the longest coastlines in the world. It is also very rich in cultural diversity. Exploring various parts of India is a dream of many travellers in the world. India has seen a boom in its tourism sector since the last few decades. However, increased tourism sometimes leads to environmental degradation which is the reason the concept of ecotourism was introduced. Travelling is the most magical experience but being responsible for the environment is the best return gift we can give to our planet and future generations. Here is the list of top Indian states that are constantly working towards encouraging ecotourism in India. 

Explore the Diversity and Nature with India

India is becoming the most favourite tourist destination around the world. The rich geographical and cultural diversity offers not only tranquillity but also provides an opportunity to experience an adrenaline rush through your blood with almost every adventure activity such as surfing, kayaking, rafting, snorkelling, mountaineering, skiing, scuba diving and skydiving to name a few.The rich culture of India, vast green lands, rich biodiversity, strong connection with ancient values and religious sentiments make India an ideal destination for offbeat travelling. In the past few decades, India has witnessed a huge increase in the number of both domestic and international tourists. But with increased tourists comes increased mess. The negative impact of tourism is substantial. This comes with waste problems, depletion of natural resources and pollution. 

A Break from City Ruckus in 'God's Own Country'

Periyar Wildlife Century is a beautiful park in the state of Kerala in southern India. Kerala is not called 'God's own country', that is, God's own country. Once you come here, you felt that every part of it was truly spared by God himself. Periyar Wildlife Century is also one such place. This century, situated in Thekkady, some distance from Idukki district of Kerala, calls thousands of tourists every day. Spread over 485 square kilometres, this park is a treasure of natural beauty. It has a forest, lake, small mountains, all kinds of trees, plants, animals, birds and reptiles. It contains the immense beauty of nature. This journey of our Periyar started from Madurai in Tamil Nadu. We booked a taxi from there and set out to visit this beautiful place. The state of Tamil Nadu is from Madurai to Theni and the border of Kerala starts from Theni, and the road is also flat till Theni. However, here too, you will see high mounds from far away mountains. On these high mounds, in many places, you will see something like a house and you will keep wondering for some time why someone would have built a building without going to this mountain without a road and how it would go there. With all these thoughts, our journey was moving forward. On one side of the road, bananas were spread far and wide on the other side with long rows of coconut trees. After travelling for about 2 hours we reached Theni.
