In the villages of India bullock cart rides are still very common modes of transportation, not only fun but also eco-friendly. Today the Raxa Collective Cardamom County team took part in the Thekkady TDPC (Tourism Destination Promotion Council) sponsored bullock cart within the local community to provide guests with a zero carbon experience that will also provide a source of income for the locals who cannot afford vehicles to exploit this large tourism market in the state.
The ceremony began with the lighting of the lamp, the most integral part of Indian tradition before the start of any program, event or venture, the significance of which goes back centuries. “Bullock Cart Discoveries” will provide guests with a unique experience in visiting various area vegetable and fruit farms in an enjoyable and informative 3-hour journey. Guests will see farms with abundant bird life where food is grown with neither chemical fertilizer nor pesticides, traveling in a manner that won’t disrupt the delicate balance by adding vehicle emission.
