Weekends and Spare Time in India

Weekends are usually free and volunteers usually use this time to meet and go travelling. Our location in Kerala means that you are well placed to see some of the most interesting sites in india.

The beaches of Kerala are reputed to be some of the best in the world. Not far away is the palm fringed Kovalam, perfect for just chilling out and relaxing by the sea after a hectic week in India. Further afield the coastal port of Cochin once centre to the spice trade from India. Travel further inland and travel down the famous backwaters of Kerala or journey up into the Western Ghat mountains and the wildlife reserve at Periyar roamed by herds of mud-caked elephants.

If exhausted by constant travelling, take a weekend off and take time to appreciate the various theatre and dance styles that abound in Kerala. Mohiniattam ("dance of the enchantress") and the martial art influenced Kathakali dance drama are well worth experiencing if you have the chance during you time with us in India.

Those interested in travelling much further afield can journey into neighbouring Tamil Nadu to visit the many Hindu temples or much further north to Agra and a pilgrimage to the Taj Mahal.
