          I wen to the web site "" and got Rural King Farms and Home Store.
          Is that what you are asking about??
          The best way to sell an idea is to do a MARKET REPORT, Identifying customer demand,
          Identifying your market, its size and location. Also include advertising and marketing.
          Good luck, LUCKIEST

            Corporations may want a quiet place for retreats or board meetings. If there are any B&B's in the area(s) offfering meeting facilities for small businesses that may be a selling point. You could contact the local Chamber of Commerce iin the nearest larger urban area.

            If your community has several artists and a gallery this could become a draw as well.

              Are you trying to "sell the idea of rural tourism" in general -- or are you seeking input on how to sell the specific trek from Bengaluru that's outlined on the web page you provided?

              If it's the former, the State of Maine provides some good examples and role models -- almost half of that state's home-based and small businesses are essentially in the rural tourism industry. It's an untapped opportunity in many other areas, however.

              If it's the latter, I'd need to know more about what you're envisioning to offer any suggestions (e.g., who exactly would you be targeting -- businesses in the capital city, foreign tourists looking for a day trip, others?).

              Interesting concept. Good luck!

Am looking for any one willing to invest in the industry and I will be willing to give any information required interms of setting up the venture.
