Summer of mango tourism

A unique and niche concept, mango tourism is gaining popularity in India and is giving tourists the rare chance of plucking mangoes directly from orchards, as they enjoy summer strolls in the green and refreshing environs.

Seeing the popularity of mango, considered to be the King of Fruits in India, state tourism boards in the country are organising mango festivals as well as catching up on the growing trend of mango tourism.

The trend that started in the western state of Maharashtra has gradually spread to other parts of the country. Northern states like Uttar Pradesh and southern states like Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka are also showing interest in the niche tourism and are actively organising tours during the mango season.
