India’s tourism ministry partners with OutsiteVR for virtual travel experiences – Business Traveller


Virtual reality (VR) technology-driven experiments are transforming the travel industry. Taking this into account, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India has partnered with OutsiteVR, a travel tech startup, to empower people to travel India virtually and further boost Incredible India campaigns.

OutsiteVR is an experiential platform that allows you to virtually travel across popular heritage sites, historical monuments and tourist attractions using a smartphone, desktop, or VR headset.

This tie-up between the Ministry of Tourism and OutsiteVR is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).

Here, one can explore interesting places in the country right from the ancient Key Monastery, Himachal Pradesh in the north to the picturesque Kannur Light House, Kerala in the south. You can also stroll the streets of the west for handicraft and traditional culture and finally venture all the adventures of India’s beautiful northeast.

The latest place, available for virtual exploration on the platform, is home to Jaipur’s royal family as well as a museum – City Palace, Jaipur, Rajasthan.
