Rajasthan To Launch Full Moon Tourism In These Remote Areas For Skygazers

Touring in search of the starry sky and the moon seems to be a new travel fashion. Yes, we’re talking about Astro-tourism in India. In the same context, the Rajasthan government will soon introduce full-moon tourism as well. It will take visitors to remote areas where they can enjoy clear sky views.

According to reports, tourists will get a chance to experience the starry sky that is often overlooked in everyday life. In this regard, the state government’s Department of Science and Technology (DST) has written a letter to the Ministry of Tourism.

Full moon tourism is an excellent nighttime activity that allows visitors to experience the beauty of the night sky. Tourists can see the fascinating moon, distant stars, several planets, and the overall beauty of the sky. The idea behind full moon tourism is to travel to remote areas at night when the moon is high in the sky and there is less light pollution.
