“To live a responsible life on our planet, we need to learn to love and delight in the abundance of Mother Earth."

This programme is open for adults and children.

This programme has been designed with care to suit adults who are familiar with wilderness as well as those who have never camped or trekked before. As a community with people from diverse backgrounds, we expect a rich shared experience of learning and earth reverence at Sharavathi Valley.

The Western Ghats is one of the Bio-diversity hotspots of the world- an area for all of us to experience, explore and cherish. The trek in Sharavathi Valley will include breathtakingly beautiful routes along the Sharavathi River.

  1. Gudlugundi Falls are magnificent untouched waterfalls in a beautiful setting hidden deep in the mountains of the dense forests of the Western Ghats
  2. Water Activities:

The beauty of the vast expanse of the Sharavathi River Valley will only add to the experience of being in the wilderness – where you learn to swim in the water with life jackets, row a canoe, go kayaking, take a ride in coracle and learn to build a raft from scratch. These activities will help you gain confidence, build trust within a team and make the entire experience of the Sharavathi valley much more enjoyable.

This programme accommodates people with ability to go on moderately tough treks; those who have no trekking experience will also be supported by the resource persons and others. Direct contact with the resource people / programme co-ordinator can be made to clarify your doubts. Please make sure you read the programme information sheet carefully.
