You’ll get a real taste of India’s traditional side on this trip, which whisks you to an authentic cultural village near the Gurupura River. This place feels a million miles from the hectic streets of the bigger cities, with thatched-roof buildings and tree-speckled courtyards. You’ll see locals working on potters’ wheels and handlooms. There are also blacksmiths, woodworkers and stone carvers going about their business. The whole place was created to keep the region’s age-old skills alive in the modern world, and you’ll have a guide to take you around and fill you in on the history of each trade. After, you'll get to see inside a local historical mansion, which now homes a museum on local life.
Clothing shouldn’t be revealing, and it’s worth bringing a comfortable pair of shoes along.
