What is NotOnMap?

NotOnMap is a handcrafted, socially driven initiative that helps travellers around the world to experience comfortable stays, culture and food. For what remains engraved are memories; and we strive to give travellers and hosts alike the best ones. We aim to do this through deep rooted cultural exchanges which give equally rewarding for travellers and also for the host house/family/village. 
We always believed travel was not just about bed and breakfast, but about experiences the shapes one’s life. NotOnMap tries to give a experience where no matter how remote you are, you will always feel like a part of family.
Because in the end, experiences are all that matter.




Live Life As Lived By Locals in houses as old as 100 years.

‘One Stop Solution’ for rustic & rare destinations near any important city in India. It’s NOT for those who are looking for luxury but for travellers with ‘Hunger for Culture’ and want to Live Life As Lived By Locals.

Our Mission

We want people of all ages to experience how travel can be as much of a learning experience as school; how travel can shape us and help us discover the very essence of cultural experiences. We at NotOnMap aspire to create a culture where everyone - locals, travellers and nature - care for each other.

Our Concept 

NotOnMap’s concept is that of a travel company that facilitates Socio-Cultural Exchange, where we strive to provide travellers with beautiful experiences at remote locations and vice versa. We open doors of local homes, with hosts who extend their warm hospitality to travellers and allow a deeper impact cultural exchange that benefits both parties.

We believe in giving not just a home to stay but an entire village for the guest to stay.

You might just stay in one house but end up having meals in many other houses as they would have become your friends during your stay in the village. This develops the meaning of community stay and allows more socio-cultural aspect to travel. We are working with aim to empower local villagers & thus It is a socially concern initiative with focus on responsible tourism and 80% of revenue goes to the local villagers who help this initiative grow. It is an initiative "For Travelers and started By passionate Travelers" who have traveled such remote places all across the country.
