At Mihir Garh we are conscious of our ecological responsibilities and the fort, or various activities for the guests, in no way encroaches upon the beauty of this virgin land. If at all, it complements it.
Here are a few policies we have adopted:
- The very look of the Fort has been designed and conceived using as much natural materials as possible. Use of chemical was avoided at several stages to keep the look and feel of the fort as close to Rural Rajasthan as possible.
- Every single drop of rain water that falls on the fort is collected in a massive cistern and filtered. By this technique, we effectively minimize wastage of pure rain water and closed cistern keeps the water pure for over a year.
- We have an advanced system of sewage treatment at Mihir Garh through which drainage water has been re-cycled and put to effective use.
- We make use of solar heating to provide warm/hot water to the guests so that use of electricity for heating purposes is curtailed.
- Finally, the land around Mihir Garh has been left to nature so that local indigenous flora can thrive, and subsequently attract fauna around it as well.
At Mihir Garh, we are aware of this truth: Earth does not belong to man; instead, man belongs to Earth. We are doing all we can to minimize our carbon footprint.
