The Blue Yonder - South India
The Blue Yonder (TBY) is an Indian based travel company that promotes responsible tourism (RT) and creates alternate ‘destinations’ and ‘products’ to provide experiential holidays for its guests. TBY was established as a private limited company in February 2007 although its conceptual origins go back to 2004 when the current promoter, Mr. Gopinath Parayil, set up Nila Foundation to raise funds for the revival of the dying river Nila in Kerala.
Since its establishment, TBY had evolved Nila into an all-year round tourist destination. TBY has established itself as a national player in Responsible Tourism space, providing exotic and experiential holidays in Kerala, Karnataka, Sikkim, Spiti Valley – Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, WestBengal, Orissa, Andamans and Nepal.
TBY headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka promotes integrated development of responsible tourism, local community and art, culture and heritage. TBY is also engaged in various social and environmental initiatives.
