70 visually impaired thrill-seekers had a blast on a trip to Corbett Park

May 9, 2019

“To Travel is to Live” these words by Hans Christian Andersen truly represent the pleasure one derives from travelling.

Rising Star Tours & Travels, a Delhi based company, is seeking to ensure that visually impaired people get to experience this joy as well. Founder Amit Jain is changing the way that blind people travel.

A recent adventure to Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand is a fine example of an inclusive trip organized by the company.

Seventy people with visual impairments went on this epic trip and came back with lifelong memories to cherish.

The three-day trip was full of super fun activities such as Jungle Safari, pool party, late night dancing, and lots more. The travellers stayed at a five-star resort with top class services for their comfort and enjoyment.

Aruni Sharma, a college teacher from Lucknow was among them. “It was a great experience to be on this trip. Getting to meet new people, making new friends was the highlight for me. Spending some time in nature made me feel complete and relaxed. The resort was also grand with all the facilities for our comfort.”

This is the fourth such trip for visually impaired people organized by Rising Star Tours & Travels. Jain’s team works the trip out in advance to ensure safety and fun. Costs are kept minimal as well.

Everything went about smoothly as planned and everyone had a good experience. For many of the travellers, this was the first ever trip of their lives and they enjoyed being out of their comfort area. We will soon be organizing ore of these trips. - Amit Jain, Founder, Rising Star Tours & Travels

The aim of these trips is to break barriers and to enable the blind people to come out of their fears of travelling to new places. The travellers get to try new experiences, adventures, thrills and also make new friends on the way.

Shubham Gupta, who works with the State Bank of India has been on every trip organized by Rising Tours & Travels and has loved every single one of them. “This was an excellent trip too. Like always the arrangements were superb, the hotel, volunteers everything was very well managed. Amit Jain goes through a lot of efforts to make the trip a success and this time too it was great to be a part of the adventure”, he said.

So, if you are looking to sign up for the next one, do track their upcoming trips on their Facebook page.
