A stay at Walden is an initiation into a conscious way of living. Here, you can see how our rewilding activities have brought in a plethora of flora and fauna. What better way to wind down from the mad hustle of urban living and commune with nature?
There is a range of activities that you can participate in here at Walden. From giving a hand to those toiling on the farms to finding a solitary nook with your favorite book. Go hiking amidst the forest trails or find shapes in the clouded skies while laying around on the hammock or just dig your toes into the soft, wet soil and smear your hands with the brown of the land.
The rewilding activities have also invited a wide variety of birds like peacocks, wild hens, kingfishers, Himalayan griffin, and wild animals like porcupines, wild hare, Sambar deer, barking deer, and wild bores (occasionally a leopard!)
From planting tree saplings, sowing or harvesting fields, maintaining our vegetable and herb garden, interacting with bees or poultry, making swales or little check dams—there’s no shortage of farming work. Look up at the wonders of the cosmos with or without a telescope. The clear, pollution-free skies can be very inviting for those interested in the constellations. As the only habitable patch in the area, we have access to huge expanse of forest area that is perfect for a jungle walk. Nature has given us many gifts and one of them is organic cleansing agents. Learn the art of making these skincare products with your hands.
