Meet the Kolkana Tribe

Description

Dangs is located in the south of Gujarat, and although it is the smallest district in the state, it is blessed with beautiful forests and has many different tribes living there, like the Kokana. It's also the starting point of the famous Western Ghats of India. This experience will take you back to the roots and let you experience the pure village lifestyle of the Kokana tribe.

In these two days, you will get a unique chance to experience the life of the Kokana tribe. As soon as you arrive at the farmhouse, you will be warmly welcomed and have some time to relax. In the afternoon, you can join in any activities you like, from milking cattle, breaking the shell of the paddy traditionally, creating flooring with dung, bamboo artwork, and many more. You can also see the tools they used for traditional hunting (they have stopped hunting now).

In the afternoon, there is a tea break where they will prepare tea made from local herbs. In the evening you have the chance to prepare dinner together as well. They are more than happy to teach you some traditional tribal dishes that you will eat together afterward while sharing stories.

The following day you will go for a hike through the forest while they explain the significance of the forest to them. After a nice morning walk, you will return to the farmhouse to enjoy a tasty lunch, after which it will be time for your departure.
