Pahadi House Travel Itinerary

Pahadi House Travel Itinerary

It is said that India resides in its villages; however, what most travelers get to see is just a glimpse of these villages. Indeed, to offer travelers a touch and feel of rural India we have devised a rural walk program through some of the most unspoiled remote villages, enabling you to experience rural India from close quarters and allowing you to mingle with local communities. Charmingly, you also get to stay in some of these traditional village houses which are stunningly located and have been touched up (and added on with attached bathrooms) to provide very comfortable lodging without compromising on the authenticity.

Our walks are accompanied by a walk guide, who will share the local knowledge with you and will assist in mingling with the communities – you may share a cup of chai with the local elders, pay obeisance at a temple or just soak in the stunning scenery while traversing the hills and valleys.

As interests and capabilities vary, the walks are customized according to your needs. The luggage is carried by porters and the food is prepared using fresh local ingredients on site.
