We commonly know Dharavi as the ‘largest slum in Asia’ but here’s an uncommon fact–it’s possibly the richest. Dharavi is a small town in itself with its own set of industries that generate a turnover of approximately US$ 1 billion every year.
Witness and experience a wide range of these money minting activities like recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, cardboard making, leather tanning and many many more. Discover how most of these things are created in innovative (Dharavi) ways that too in very limited spaces! And as though all this wasn’t enough, you’ll also find that most of their production lines are home made.
You will also be party to their personal lives as you pass through the residential spaces. People from all over India live in Dharavi, and this diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques and churches that stand side by side in one single vicinity.
We have already told you so much and haven’t even spilled any beans yet. It is quite an adventure, a tour through Dharavi’s narrow alleys, that will leave you with an enlightened sense about Mumbai city. An essential economic hub of Mumbai city.
We will be assisted and accompanied by a local guide, who also has detailed knowledge of the more traditional sights and insights. And above all, 80% of the tour cost is going to profit the slums.
Each group of 8-10 will have an individual guide to give you a proper ‘know about’ for a better understanding. Let’s explore the depths of the maximum city.
