State tourism bodies in India are launching several new initiatives for the tourism sector revival.
One mode that is gaining momentum is ‘holiday on wheels.’
First Madhya Pradesh, and now Karnataka is offering travellers, the luxury to explore their state in a caravan.
Campervan Camps and Holidays India, a Bengaluru based start-up, has launched India’s first commercially approved premium motorhome, LuxeCamper, offering vacation on wheels to destinations across the country.
Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa recently inaugurated this project.
These motorhomes feature living and sleeping areas designed within a compact space that can accommodate up to four people. There is a lounge at the rear-end that doubles up as a comfortable queen bed.
They are equipped with a fully functional kitchenette that comes with an induction, stove and gas hobs, toaster, electric kettle, a microwave, fridge and freezer.
Powered by rooftop solar panels, the LuxeCampers use solar energy for charging the inverter batteries and powering the equipment, including heating and cooling, making it energy-efficient and eco-friendly.
A skylight, five bi-directional fans, hot/cold shower, modern toilet, two smart televisions and Bluetooth music system are some other highlights.
To ensure the safety of the traveller, the caravan is fitted with 360-degree cameras, emergency exits, fire extinguishers, first-aid kits, speed governor and a GPS tracker.
Other facilities include an outdoor barbecue connection, an external shower, a sleek awning with wind sensors, and a bicycle rack, ideal for outdoor camping.
Tiger Ramesh, founder, Campervan Camps and Holidays India said, “We are excited to introduce the concept of motorhome-based holidays in India. Our endeavour is to offer an all-new safe and exquisite travel experience that brings together comfort and style, like never before!
“With these LuxeCampers, our aim is to provide travellers with the opportunity to deep dive into unexplored destinations by personalising their travel trails and activities.”
As part of the initial trails offered, the company has tied-up for camping sites at locations such as Aanejari, Bandipur, Bheemeshwari, Hampi, Kabini, Kodagu, Kudremukh, Sadashivgad, Sakleshpur and Sakrebyle in Karnataka.
