Ola and Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation kick off a unique campaign to promote responsible tourism. This campaign encourages travelers to be responsible tourists, take the road less traveled, and explore hidden gems with convenient inter-city cabs across India. The team has collaborated with famous actress and blogger, Shenaz Treasury for a 14-day road trip across some unique locations in Karnataka and 6 other states in India, flagged off from Bengaluru.
As a part of the campaign and to promote offbeat travel, Shenaz Treasury, popular actress and travel blogger embarked on an exciting road trip that spans across 7 states, 14 days, and 21 lesser-known locations across the country with Ola Outstation, Ola’s smart mobility solution for inter-city travel.
With the aim of raising awareness about being a responsible tourist, respecting local culture and promoting environmentally-conscious tourism in Karnataka, Shenaz will explore some breathtaking architecture, ancient ruins and temples in locations such as Hampi, Aihole, Badami and Pattadakal, before heading to Andhra Pradesh.
Shenaz Treasury, actress and travel blogger said, “When it comes to travel, India holds a special place in my heart. Being a passionate traveler, I strongly feel that the preservation of our natural and cultural heritage across the country is facing a grave threat. There is now a need more than ever for us to travel consciously, respectfully, and responsibly. From avoiding littering to encouraging local economy, there is a lot each one of us can do to ensure the country’s cultural legacy remains intact. I am thrilled be the flag-bearer of this message, and embark on what I am certain, will be an exciting journey of exploring Karnataka’s archaeology, ancient ruins and temples by road with Ola Outstation.” Shenaz further adds, “I encourage people to take road trips, soak in some breathtaking experiences, and enjoy the scenic landscapes that our country has to offer.”
Last year, Karnataka was the 5th most popular destination in the country for domestic tourists. Travelers can explore less-frequented but equally mesmerizing locations such as Hampi, Aihole, Badami, and Pattadakal which are easily accessible by road.
