The Tarzan Way (TTW), a venture that organises backpacking/volunteer travel experiences in remote homestays, is hosting its 'Life in a Pahaadi Village' experience this January. As part of this 3 night 4 days trip (Jan 24 to 28) to Laluri Khal Village in Uttarakhand, you can live the simple Pahaadi life.
Know what this means? You can explore unseen mountain trails, take part in local rituals and activities (weaving, making haldi-dried handkerchiefs etc), live with Pahaadi families, enjoy a community dinner with authentic delicacies and there'll be barbecue and bonfire too (hey, what's a mountain trip without a bonfire?). Trekking, a welcome ceremony, and village games are all a part of the itinerary too.
TTW team has collaborated with only the local organisations (to give them employment and reduce migration to cities), so you can be sure that the whole experience will definitely help you gain an insight into the actual Pahaadi life.
Been wanting to take a break from the city? This trip could be the perfect one.
