What is alternative Tourism?
This form of tourism helps build a stronger bond between the traveller and the environment by proactive participation in the preservation and revival of the local ecology and social communities around the place and focuses on well-planned strategies to undo the adverse effects of commercialisation and mass tourism.
One of the main entry gates of The Park and its buffer zones, the Khatiya gate is about 18-20 km from the Surwahi Social site making it an ideal accommodation option for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts to book for their stays. Not only that, the Banjar River, one of the major tributaries of River Narmada and the lifeline of Kanha, flows-by at walking distance from the homestay.
The property is also one-of-its-kind amidst the wildlife habitat and dense vegetation that is aimed at providing universal accessibility to not only young and the old, but also to senior citizens and the disabled. The ecological neighbourhood of the place is what gives this property a distinctive upper hand in the authentic practice of alternate tourism in this region of the country. The promoters have hence chalked out a well-thought-out model of eco-friendly community ecotourism with the option of adding on more with passing years.
