What is NotOnMap


Notonmap is an organisation that began with a simple thought of Traveling with an Impact. Our co-founders were working in successful corporate firms and decided to quit their well-paying jobs to take this thought to an organisational level.

The idea of NotOnMap was conceptualized way back in 2012 and since its conception, we have started many social initiatives to protect the local culture and heritage of rural India and reduce the migration of skilled youth in search of revenue by self-sustaining them.

Several projects at village level have been conducted as part of this movement and now we have over 500 homestays across India registered as NotonMap sites.

Whenever we travel to remote locations/ villages, we often find poverty/lack of connectivity and communication (literal and psychological).

In order to bridge that gap between the two distinct worlds, we found a sustainable solution through controlled and responsible tourism, to empower them culturally and economically.

We focus on facilitating Socio-Cultural Exchange, where we strive to provide travellers with beautiful experiences at remote locations.

We open doors of local homes, with hosts who extend their warm hospitality to travellers and allow a deeper impact cultural exchange that benefits all.

NotOnMap tries to ensure that the experiences are beyond leisure & fun, rather it is focused towards being inclusive where travellers engage with the local community & conduct predefined activity & workshops for children, parents, students, teachers, women & youth.

Our Objective

NotOnMap is using “travel as a tool” to solve “Distress Driven Migration” and livelihood issues using under-leveraged cultural, rural and heritage assets.

We strongly believe that every culturally rich hidden community is a piece of heritage and they deserve to be self-sustainable globally. NotOnMap wants to preserve cultural heritage in remote hidden villages/community in India.

This heritage can be in the form of architecture, art or crafts. We are committed to promoting community-based responsible tourism with a focus on improving current conditions and growing towards a better social and economic status through a systematic process.

NotOnMap identifies new destinations, preserves cultural assets and facilitates travellers access to these locations. We have a community-oriented approach in order to ensure that rural folks, especially women and those from marginalized communities, earn a livelihood and feel empowered and travellers get a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
