Explore a dynamic and colourful culture
AND CONTRIBUTE TO MEANINGFUL CHANGE

Starting from $3,995 USD per person for 9 days

Trips depart from North America & Europe every Saturday

Framing the soft pink horizon, the Aravalli Mountains—the oldest range in the world—surround the province of Rajasthan, a sundrenched landscape marked by towering white temples and wheat fields. With every turn, you’ll experience the vibrancy of Indian culture through the colourful sights of saris fluttering in the wind as women walk toward the marketplace to children shouting greetings of ‘namaste!’ and singing traditional songs as they play in the surrounding fields. Work alongside local families on a sustainable development project, helping empower communities to end the cycle of poverty.

Trip Overview

Be captivated by spectacular views of pink-hued mountains as you arrive at your accommodations in Rajasthan at Araveli Cottages and Tented Camp. Relax on the veranda of your private cottage, furnished with all the comforts of home.

In a partner community nearby, engage with local families and take part in a Poja Prayer Ceremony. Every new build project begins with a traditional blessing to ensure its success and prosperity.

Work side-by-side with local community members on a sustainable development project like building a new classroom.

Immerse yourself in India’s unique and vibrant culture: practice Bollywood dance moves and prepare chapatti with women from a local community.

Walk in the footsteps of a local woman as she collects water for her family.

Explore Udaipur, known as the Venice of the East. Visit majestic temples alongside stunning lakes, and engage with local merchants in a colourful, bustling market.
