Indian Village Experience with Chhotaram


Hi, I am Chhotaram and I am a weaver who lives near Jodhpur. During my local village tour experience outside of Jodhpur, you will immerse yourself in traditional Indian life here in the countryside and meet local artisans from our community.

I will connect you with local shepherd families to learn about how they live traditionally by herding their sheep, goats, and camels. Along the way, you'll have the chance to spot wildlife like antelopes, gazelle, peacocks, and many other animals.

Block printing is also very famous in this region, which you will see in practice and other artisans designing pottery. I will also introduce you to one of the most talented rug weavers in the entire country that lives here in my village of Salawas where we make stunning carpets and still keep one of our most treasured traditions alive: the durry (rug). Whether weaved out of cotton or wool, the durry spreads a colorful tradition from its primitive form of weaving to the villages of Rajasthan. We will try traditional mouthwatering Rajasthani food with my family, who loves to cook and will share our secret family recipes with you.

We can't wait to host you in Salawas and share more about our culture and community!
