Purushwadi is an enchanting village nestled in the hills about 5 hours north east of Mumbai. If you want to experience what life is really like in India, then I recommend this trip. Grassroutes http://grassroutes.co.in/ who facilitate these unique trips are a well organised and passionate social enterprise who really care about the good people of Purushwadi. I enjoyed lovely...

We decided to spend the New Year amidst nature and selected Purushwadi as our destination. This picturesque village is an easy getaway from Mumbai. Though it was only an overnight trip it was packed with a lot of activity. Our trip started on a high note. We witnessed a cow fair, on an open ground not too far away from... More

We went for one of the Grassroutes events at their forest village - Dehna. The surrounding hills, nature trails, riverside picnics, the hospitality of the local people and the organization, camps, food - everything was really super. It is a very special experience for us city-folks, and a true dive into the beautiful lives of the rest of India. I... More

I read about Grassroutes' Firefly tour in Outlook magazine last year. So when we planned a weekend trip to Nashik from Mumbai, we decided to spend one night at Purushwadi en route. Reservations were easy to make and the instructions to get to Rajur, easy to follow. At Rajur, we were met by our guide and reached Purushwadi in time... More

My husband and I went to Purushwadi to view the fireflies last weekend. I came across this trip organised by Grassroutes in some online forum and was delighted by the promptness with which the team booked our spot on the trip, sent across all details and did everything necessary to ensure we got to Purushwadi just fine. The camp site... More

I heard about Grassroutes and the Firefly festival through a friend of mine. I called to book as soon as I heard, but unfortunately for me, they were completely sold out for three weekends. Nonetheless, I arranged for my own tent and the Grassroutes folks were kind enough to let us camp there and participate in the activities for a... More

I found Grassroutes at the perfect time. I was always looking for uncomplicated experiences where I could interact and get amongst people living in rural India. The people living in Grassroutes villages are cheerful and accommodating. Local guides i.e. the youth of the village told us about the medicinal plants, cooking methods and annual cultural programs in the village. I... More

Initially I was just looking for a photography workshop. That's how I came across Girish. Purushwadi with Grassroutes was a fabulous experience. To actually eat in the kitchen of the villagers, Wow! Food can't get fresher than this. The villagers are kind and welcome you with open arms. Photography lessons with Girish was an enlightning experience and sky photography at... More
