After pickup, we will drive to Mangar, a 700 years old charming village to experience rural life. A few serene moments in the village will be followed by a walk into the sacred forest towards a hermitage present inside the forest. This valley is a part of The Aravallis (oldest plateau range of the world). On the way, we will spot various birds including peacocks and gorgeous Indian Pitta - an elusive bird that inhabits the scrub jungle. At the hermitage we will meet the hermit. Guests can talk to him about his life, ask him some spiritual questions as well. The Hermit doesn't speak English and I'll be translating. We will then visit Gudariya Das Baba temple (10 mins walk). Locals believe that the soul of this holy man protects the sacred forest. On the way we will spot another temple and a watering hole. At the temple, guests may light an earthen lamp and make a wish. I will be providing all the accessories needed at the temple. Guests may opt to plant a tree and leave behind a greener footprint From the temple we will walk back to the car (20 mins). Unplug from technology and slow down. This is an experience to de-stress and relax as you savor the sounds, smells and sights of nature and let the forest in.

This region has many hidden lakes, temple and hermitages to explore and uncover.

We will visit Mangar Bani valley, a breathtakingly beautiful forest grove in the Aravali range. It harbours rich flora and fauna, and a captivating natural ambiance. Revered by the locals and protected through strictures on wood-cutting and grazing, it occupies an area of 677 acres. Mangar Bani is one place in the Indian subcontinent that has remained untouched by the rulers over centuries including the colonial rule.
