  • Description

    Description

    We are an organic sugarcane farm right next to the Indian national capital region (NCR) Delhi in Uttar Pradesh. We want to convert our farm into a RURAL HOSTEL. Most hostels in India are in the cities. We see our place as a stopping off point for travellers who want to see the north of India (as we are centrally located) or simply as a place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of India travel.

    Currently the farm is a working farm so we are looking for people to help us build dormitories, make gardens and even build a pizza oven.

    Because of our location we are conveniently located for travel to Golden Temple in Amritsar, Shimla and Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, Nepal, The Taj Mahal, Lucknow, Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh and many more.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will feed you home grown organic vegetarian food (sorry no meat).
    You'd get to see how agriculture is practised in India and maybe get invited to a real Indian home.
    We are close to Delhi if you want to see the sights of the Capital City. A bus goes to Delhi from the village every morning.
    There is an abundance of rural walks with wildlife and nature photographic opportunities.
    The river Ganga (Ganges) is 15-18km distant.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    At the moment the accommodation is rudimentary. This is what we want to build. Currently we can offer a dormitory of 3 bunk beds (6 beds in total). We have phone and laptop recharging facilities and WiFi. The food is organic and home grown for the most part.
    At present we only have one useable bathroom/shower so we are not ready for more than about 2 people at the moment but hopefully this will change soon.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located close to a the city of Meerut. Meerut is a major hub of the Indian Army. Therefore travel to and from our area by rail or road to nearly anywhere in the north of India is very simple. We are also only about 100km from Delhi and the Indira Gandhi Inernational Airport.
