Description

Experience how Goans celebrate nature, friends and family! It is very common for Goan folk to go back to the forest, swim in a stream whilst drinking and eating merrily! Our grandparents did it, our parents did it and by god, we are doing it FULL POWER! A big part of being Goan is honoring your connection to nature. The bond between Earth and Man is true and sacred and deserves celebration!  

After a village breakfast right around the rendezvous, a few minutes’ drive to the parking spot. Then drive to the trek starting point crossing of the stream and a forest path. Chill here for a couple of hours. Later, drive to a farmer’s hut, down a couple of freshly made Feni cocktails and dig into a traditionally cooked Goan Gaud Saraswat lunch over stories of the village. Some of the ingredients for the lunch are picked from the surrounding hills. You can even give a shot at making a cocktail.
