What to Expect
Get picked up from your hotel and then drive towards a local traditional village called Chiraigaon. On arrival in the village, get a warm welcome by the villagers and be shown around their homes and businesses. Explore the rustic settings of the village and get introduced to local farming practices and traditional customs.

Interact with the locals and get to understand their way of living. Get your hands into making pickles out of home recipes. Sit down and savor a refreshing cup of masala tea.

Next visit Sarai Mohana village, the famous weavers’ village of Varanasi where you will be shown around and watch the artisans weaving beautiful fabrics from silk threads, creating the world-renowned Banarasi (other name of Varanasi) silk sarees.

The silk sarees of Varanasi are one of the finest silks in India and are noted for its fine quality, intricate brocade work, and stunning embroidery. No wonder the saree is a favorite among ladies on festive and special occasions, it makes for a great gifting option as well which is worth the investment.

After tour ends, you will be dropped back to your hotel.
