Explore the unexplored

Living in the city, most of us feel the need to go out into the wide open and explore the beautiful countryside. Breathe some fresh air and maybe get a glimpse of life on the other side of the fence.

Well, here’s an attempt to connect folks like us to rural India and hopefully they can provide a platform to those who want to venture into unexplored parts outside of Bangalore city.

Called Rural Zing, their aim is to be “an Initiative to connect urban and rural economy”.

The day long trips are organised on Saturdays and Sundays and for details you can log on to:

The road less travelled

    Interesting. I went to the web site. The distance to the “remote” location is 55 km from bangalore with an estimated travel time of 2 hours. Two things struck me. First, is getting the “whole rural experience” really only 55 km away. Second, does it really take 2 hours to travel that distance.

    @ radman: i am sure there will be more locations as they go along. btw, you don’t need to travel very far to get into ‘rural’ india so as to speak from bangalore. in my experience (having done several such trips), it does take about 2 hours, considering the bad roads and secondly the fact that you inevitably stop to take breaks, have chai etc.

    Anita, it would have been nice, if you had written this after actually going on one of these trips. Otherwise it sounds like yet another plug (YAP) on Bangalore metblogs.

    @ ABCD: I think it it’s REALLY unreasonable for anyone to expect me to personally check out every service before I post about it. If I come across something I feel is interesting for Bangaloreans I don’t always get the chance to try it out myself. Sometimes, I post these things so other readers and enthusiasts can try it out and send us their experiences.

    Really nice info. If anyone has tried this out, please do share your experience.
    Would like my kids to exp. the rural India.
