  • Description


    Hi Volunteers, I am Shekhar, 1985 born from village Kyari in Nainital district that lies in the northern state of Uttarakhand, India. Our lush green forest with a river flowing next to it experiences pleasant weather all year through specially because of our naturally temperature controlled mud cottages that makes us an unhotel kind of property build on responsible tourism practices. This local community led initiative is located in the outer periphery of Asia’s first national park called Corbett Tiger Reserve. With its scenic beauty, diverse vegetation and mighty Himalayas, Uttarakhand has become one of the prime tourist destinations in India. But that has unfortunately attracted inconsiderate hotels and resorts owned by the city builders with nearly no involvement of locals resulting in cultural and environmental loss. Keeping that in mind, I along with my brother decided upon developing a low impact space on our family land in the year 2010. The main objective was to create a sustainable enterprise and provide employment to the youth in the village so as to stop their emigration to cities. Today after over a decade of struggle we are well established with about 30% village involved with the camp directly or indirectly. At the Camp, our aim is to seed an alternative form of nature travel that is responsible and contributes to nature conservation and community development.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities:
    Kyari village is basically a community of farmers who own and work on mango orchards, paddy fields and grow many other organic vegetables and fruits. Being next to a tiger reserve, prospective volunteers here may often have close encounters with a variety of wildlife such as deers, elephants & wild boars etc that roam the forest freely and have a rich birdwatching experience. For a wildlife enthusiast it is an opportunity of a lifetime to experience such an active forest. Since we are the local residents, the volunteers get to experience our village from inside out!

  • Aide


    Help Required:
    We organise outdoor activities, environment & conservation programs for school children, corporate teams, big family and friends groups at the Camp (a permanent campsite) which are typically 2-5 days long. So during these programs we require a convener/ facilitator who could get involved in the programs along with our camp guides to ensure a smooth flow. Our camp schedule includes some soft adventure activities like river walks, cycling, forest hike, team building games and village tour, bird watching, spotting native species of trees and plants, and community services. Volunteers are not expected to conduct the activities alone rather he/she will act as one of the co-facilitator along with our in-house guides.

    Additional benefits:
    In their free time a volunteer may go for a wildlife safari in a gypsy van to see the animals inside a protected park. Or he/she can simply sit and chill at the campsite on a swing or a hammock, learn to cook Indian food, read a book on wildlife from our community library or watch the sunset sitting at a river rock. Some mesmerising hill stations of north India like Nainital, Ranikhet & Almora are closeby when you are here. You may also go on a trek or do some charity work at the local school.
    Public transport has lesser frequency here but it is available.
