The most authentic charm of the monsoon season can be experienced in a typical Konkan village. As someone who spent their childhood in Konkan, I hold these memories dear to my heart. It's not just about participating in paddy transplanting activities on a farm; it's about the joy we found in exploring the village's natural beauty and warmth. The aroma of freshly cooked fish curry, steaming hot rice, and the spicy fragrance of Konkani masalas filled the air and tantalized our taste buds. Splashing around in pools, fishing, and playing in the muddied fields up to our knees were just added bonuses that made our time even more enjoyable.
The Western Ghat mountain range runs parallel to the Konkan coast. It was formed some 150 Million Years ago when the supercontinent ‘Gondwana’ started to split. It is both surprising and somewhat relieving how Western Ghats and the Konkan Coast have not received their fair share of limelight.
Surprising because the western ghats are a true wonder & legacy of nature.
Moderating the tropical climate of the region, the ghats present one of the best examples of the monsoon system on the planet. It also has an exceptionally high level of biological diversity and endemism and is recognized as one of the world’s eight ‘hottest hotspots’ of biological diversity. The forests include some of the best representatives of non-equatorial tropical evergreen forests anywhere and are home to at least 325 globally threatened flora, fauna, bird, amphibian, reptile and fish species.

And relieving because we do not wish the western ghats to succumb to unregulated and irresponsible ‘development’. We are working to build a tourism culture that is sustainable to the ecology and preserves the indigenous wisdom in our Villages. We believe there is a lot at stake in our Villages that needs to be preserved. Strengthening the local economy through eco-tourism achieves all these goals 🙂
