This Eco-village was one of the most relaxing parts of India that we experienced in our 3 month trip there. We were welcomed with a warm and loving smile from everyone and left with tears in our eyes. We experienced the real desert life and met some incredible people along the way.
They are just starting but are trying to bring the traditional ways of their people as well as hopefully building some infastructure like schools for girls (virtually unheard of in the whole region), aswell as providing for a forgotten people in the "New India".
We went camel trekking one day followed by a visit to communties in the area, that are being encouraged to reinvent themselves through their traditional ways of life.
It was really inspiring to hear the stories of the people who are trying very hard to turn their situations around through "Hard Work".
As for the village itself, It is very basic but at the same time doesn't feel like you are isolated with visitors from the community coming to visit the family that has started this project, every day. Their stories are touching and the idea of helping this worthy cause made it all the more important for to find a way to help them out any way we can.
They are not looking for charity but ar emore than willing to earn their livelyhood from showing you a piece of their world.
Only those who are looking for a new experience in India should go to this village. It is not there full of luxury but it isthere for relaxation and discovery of foreign cultures.
Good luck Cappi and Pabu
We'll definately be out to see you as soon as we can
