Village Tourism /Rural Tourism entirely focus on actively participating in a rural lifestyle and can be a variant of Eco-Tourism. Many rural villages in Sikkim, Darjeeling and Kalimpong areas can facilitate tourism because many villagers are hospitable and eager to welcome and host visitors coming from around the world and have become a segment of the urban population that is interested in visiting the rural areas and understanding the lifestyle of the village people, understand and learn the local culture & traditions which is well preserved and show-cased in these part of the Himalayan region.
Rural tourism exists in developed nations in the form of providing accommodation in a scenic location, ideal for rest and relaxation. There are many scenic villages around that have become quaint spots for vacationers and provide the best time in nature and in peace.
The village life in these regions showcases the completely different world to see and experience and a walk in the rough & rugged trails of these villages will allow one to encounter various ancient communities living and one could possibly yet simply understand the culture of the places and traditions being followed for centuries.
