In order to increase interest in astrotourism, Starscapes, India’s top astrotourism company & a member of the International Dark Sky Advocate Network, has been actively promoting Dark Sky destinations in India.

Along with encouraging astrotourism, Starscapes is closely collaborating with the neighbourhood to increase public awareness of light pollution & its negative effects on the environment. Additionally, they have been pushing for the enforcement of dark-sky laws throughout India.
