We know that you may have this question on your mind as you read this segment of our website.
Yes, it is true that for many years, Bastar was under the dark cloud of naxal activities which have been contained by para military forces. Bastar is striving to rise above this era of violence, and tourism is being promoted by the state government as well.
Our founder Ritu who has recced the region several times, has this to say: “On my trip, I saw towns as normal as any Indian town – bustling markets, people heading to work, children going to schools, colleges, temples teeming with devotees, chai shops, dhabas – people living normal, everyday lives with the usual sets of problems. There was nothing alarming, fearful or treacherous about the entire region.
Above all, I got the chance to see a State and its people trying to rise above the dark cloud of naxalism, an era of unprecedented violence, that has left its mark (some uninhabited and desolate villages etc.) but could not manage to rob them of their soul.”

To be honest, I wasn’t very comfortable with someone else planning my trip. But all those apprehensions were put to rest once I spoke with Ritu. She went beyond just asking for our trip budget and asked us about what we like doing on vacations, what kind of stay we prefer, activities, food preference and a lot more. She designed the itinerary to perfection. We didn’t have to worry about anything!!!
