Brief Description of our Anniversary Journey in India

You will travel to India arriving in the city of Mumbai to meet with your fellow travellers. After our introduction to the highlights of Mumbai, including Mahatma Ghandi’s house and Asia’s largest slum, we travel together by train to the city of Pune in the hills above Mumbai. There we will settle into a mix of presentations, sightseeing, a little yoga, shopping, evening dinners and engage with our old friends and Indian guides from the Development Support Team (DST). While in Pune we will also visit some urban communities and meet the women and their self-help groups, experience Yoga and catch up with old friends. After experiencing Pune we will then fly to the state of Rajasthan and the historic city of Jaipur with its famous Bazaar, forts and city palace. There we will visit some old partners and understand what is happening with development. In Rajasthan we will also travel to and stay in the Golden Castle fort which has been a refuge on many of our trips. From Jaipur we will travel through India’s capital, Delhi to the foothills of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand. Here in Nainital we will revisit some refreshing project work with “barefoot engineers” and women’s craft shops while enjoying the mountain views. In our final days we will hear from local people about the changes taking place. We wrap up our adventure here and return to Delhi for some quick shopping and enjoying Delhi before our journey finishes. You may  wish to return to Australia or journey further in India.
