Dang Darbar, a week-long festival, holds prime importance among the tribal of Dangs as it celebrated to honor the forefathers of five kings of Dangs. It is that time of the year when the entire town is lit up with lights, food, rides, and people along with tribal dance and culture. Witness this amazing celebration with Tales & Treasures this year as our next trip to Dangs is up during Dangs Darbar. Duration: 1N/2D Cost- Rs. 5,500/- per person (including travel from Pune-Pune, food accommodation) Itinerary: Day 0: Leave from Pune at 11 PM. Day 1: Reach Nadagkhadi village, situated in the heart of Dangs, for a traditional welcome by the community followed by a hearty breakfast. Spend the day at Dangs Darbar and witness the unique amalgamation of tribal lives and their culture. Stay for the beautiful sunset and return back to the village for the night. Have traditional Dangi cuisine in dinner at a local villager’s house. Chill out with the tribal community by a campfire, exchanging stories and understanding more about their culture. Day 2: Leave early morning for a trek in the nearby forest; have breakfast with the tribals while hanging out under a 200-year-old Mango tree. A traditional Dangi lunch. Learn how to make bamboo trinkets in the bamboo handicraft-making workshop conducted by tribal artisans of the village. By the end of the workshop, you’ll know: Cutting and peeling of bamboo. How to make tea coasters using bamboo. How to make gift boxes using bamboo. How to make a lamp using bamboo (the last item depends on the time left). You can take back whatever you create in the workshop! Leave for Pune by 4.30 PM.

Living in the comfortable urban life of metro cities, do you ever realize that there is a parallel India that exists, one that is starkly opposite to our own idea of the country? This parallel world isn’t very far from you, too. This is the heart of India - our villages and our native communities, the remotest of the tribes and lands. Tales and Treasures is a venture started by three SBI Youth for India fellows - Saumya Omer, Kriti Gupta, and Anvi Mehta. The three were working in well-established careers in the metro cities of the country before they came across the opportunity to work in rural India for a year. Having worked in the villages of Gujarat and Uttarakhand individually, they saw a huge gap between rural artists/enterprises and the urban market. To continue working for the development of our rural counterparts, the three decided to start this venture which aims at providing a platform for rural-based enterprises as well as an attempt to create awareness of the art, traditions, and craft of the country that is fading away because of urbanization. Tales and Treasures connect artists, rural enterprises directly to urban clientele by marketing their products at the right platform. Each and every product under the venture is curated by the different groups across the country, some by using the traditional knowledge passed on through generations and others using innovative production techniques to promote sustainable consumption. We have also conceptualized workshops and excursions to the villages across India, which are hidden gems rich in their traditions, culture, and art. We spread awareness of our rich culture through tete-a-tete’s and talks, conduct art-based workshops and lead travelers to places which promise unique rural experiences.
