Like a home on wheels, tourists will be able to explore places all the while being inside a home away from home. “Our first vehicle was for the first time launched by the tourism minister, which basically marked the beginning of the caravan culture in India," said the manager of the caravan home, ANI reported.

The state's tourism ministry is working on policies to provide the facilities of caravan tourism to tourists and are also mulling over setting up a caravan park in the state. Two vehicles have already been made for this purpose which can be used by tourists to easily complete their journey in it. “Our goal is that the number of tourists coming to the state, increases, and for that, we are trying our best to give them more and more facilities so that their visit becomes memorable," Dhami said.

The home-on-wheels for Uttarakhand tourism have been made by Delhi-based Motorhome Adventures, a 25-year-old company that builds moving houses called Caravan Moto homes. The company also manufactures personalized caravans as per orders.
