We successfully completed the development of our e-Foreststrails Karnala Mobile App, an unique cellphone tours app. A cellphone nature tour app, a unique blend of technology and nature launched in the Month of April.
It is an innovation where the trails are GPS tracked and there is virtual assistant to interact on the trail. It is designed to function without an internet connection.
