  • Description


    We initiated the creation of Eco village in 2012 and since then we have covered quite a distance though we have lots to cover. Its made in 2 acres of land, with cottages, ponds, farm land, domesticated animals and local villagers working.. Its surrounded on one side by the Gomur river and three sides by local villages. We are a tour company which brings people to go to the tiger reserve and have people coming in from all parts of the world, hence we want to create a place which can be a centre of skill exchange, Learn while Teaching is the idea.
    The idea is to make the eco village self sustainable, and a place where people from different parts of the world and come and feel at home...Have a place for free to stay and work and evolve...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    So we are a bunch of guys who have created this place which seems to be a world away , though its only about 4 hours from Kolkata.Its a picturesque village, with paddy fields on one side and mangrove jungles on one side..we have had friends come over and volunteer and help us with different things and had a great time, some of them living for more than a month or so.. In free time ,one can go for bird watching, fishing in the ponds or river, also can go for a day long toger safari, only when they volunteer for more than 15 days and they have to pay the entry fees to the park..Please note that this is not a free tour opportunity, so please do not expect any tour during your stay, it is solely at our discretion...

    We are urgently looking for yoga trainers and alternative therapists...!!we are also looking for someone who can train and take care of our newly arrived horse, lucy....!!!!
    There is new guest at our eco village, Rangabati, about 50 years old,not mentally stable, but very sweet she was lying and scraping for food and in a very deplorable condition, so we thought it right to bring her home, though we do not have any expertise in this line except for some love and food for her...volunteers willing to come and spend some time in sundarbans , working in different fields, and willing to spend time with Rangabati, is welcome aboard...!
