What you'll do

After pickup, we will drive to Mangar, a 700 years old charming village to experience rural life. A few serene moments in the village will be followed by a walk into the sacred forest towards a hermitage present inside the forest.

This valley is a part of The Aravallis (oldest plateau range of the world). On the way, we will spot various birds including peacocks and gorgeous Indian Pitta - an elusive bird that inhabits the scrub jungle.

At the hermitage we will meet the hermit. Guests can talk to him about his life, ask him some spiritual questions as well. The Hermit doesn't speak English and I'll be translating.

We will then visit Gudariya Das Baba temple (10 mins walk). Locals believe that the soul of this holy man protects the sacred forest. On the way we will spot another temple and a watering hole.

At the temple, guests may light an earthen lamp and make a wish. I will be providing all the accessories needed at the temple. Guests may opt to plant a tree and leave behind a greener footprint

From the temple we will walk back to the car (20 mins).

Unplug from technology and slow down. This is an experience to de-stress and relax as you savor the sounds, smells and sights of nature and let the forest in.

Believe you me those who think that Delhi NCR region is all but not nature, would be proven wrong. This region has many hidden lakes, temple and hermitages to explore and uncover.

Where you'll be

We will visit Mangar Bani, a breathtakingly beautiful forest grove in the Aravali range. It harbours rich flora and fauna, and a captivating natural ambiance. Revered by the locals and protected through strictures on wood-cutting and grazing, it occupies an area of 677 acres. Mangar Bani is one place in the Indian subcontinent that has remained untouched by the rulers over centuries including the colonial rule.

This was one of the absolute highlights of my stay in Gurgaon. Amber will take you to a forest that you wouldn't be able to find and explore on your own. He is really passionate about it and will share his own stories, along with some history and facts about the Aravalis. Being in the nature, breathing fresh air, and enjoying silence was very welcome after a few months in the city. Absolutely recommended!

I have been staying in Gurgaon for many years, yet I had no idea that this beautiful place existed. Amber made sure that the minutest of details were taken care of. To make his guests comfortable on a warm day, he had wet wipes, cold water, umbrella in his car. He also carried snacks and a first aid kit. Amber is a nature lover and has great knowledge and experience to share. He was talkative and during the car ride, we discussed a variety of topics. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who likes nature with a twist of spirituality and history.
