A venture started by Standford graduates, Project Karuna creates customised travel experiences in some of India's lesser-known and the most stunning locations. If you're someone who's not limited by a budget, and is open to anything from attending a qawwali performance in a dilapidated 14th century mosque, to chilling in a private infinity pool next to a fishing beach in Goa (and everything in between), this travel company will make you very happy.
You should also know that the idea behind starting this venture was to ensure that urban folks develop karuna (compassion) and contribute to the betterment of rural India. Hence, all the Project Karuna experiences are created in a way that they make life more meaningful for those who live in far-off villages and rural parts of the country.
What's so great about this company's experiences, you ask? They're all beautiful experiences that will make you love India, love life really. In the past, they've set up a 14-course tasting menu in the great Himalayan range while yaks grazed right in front. They can organise sundowner dinners next to an oasis in the Thar desert, take you to the tallest Himalayan ranges where you can have the white sand dunes all to yourself and so much more. As part of their Ladakh itinerary, you can enjoy a meal inside a 300-year old Tibetan monastery, meet his Holiness Dalai Lama (!!), stay in a secret village far from Nubra Valley's touristy crowds, and do so much more.
Every experience can be customised to a T to ensure that you have the best time ever.
