Goa’s tribal minister is hoping to promote the states more remote regions to tourists.

Goa is already on of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole of the Indian subcontinent.

It has a great mix of beautiful coastal scenery, tropical climate and has plenty of lavish hotels and restaurants to keep visitors feeling comfortable.

However, it also has a rich cultural tradition and brings together many different Indian customs.

Now tribal welfare minister Ramesh Tawadkar is hoping to allow tourists to see more of the remote areas of the state – in particular the village of Vavurla in Canacona.

Not only is the settlement set amid very serene surroundings, but it is home to many interesting castes and tribes.

He believes it could be the perfect place to expand eco and adventure tourism in Goa.

“Developing the village into a tourist spot will, besides ensuring development of the village, also do away with unemployment as tourism activities will give rise to many employment and self-employment avenues for the locals,” Tawadkar told the Times of India.
