Full description
Known to many as ‘one of the largest slums in Asia’, Dharavi is Mumbai’s beating heart. It houses about one million of Mumbai’s inhabitants and its industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million.

Through an educational walking tour, visitors will experience a wide range of these business activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more.

The tour will also visit the residential areas of Dharavi. People from all over India have come to live in Dharavi, making it a microcosm of India. This diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques, churches and pagodas that stand side by side.
The two and a half hour introduction to Dharavi aims to give visitors a much more nuanced understanding of life and work in Mumbai slums.
Includes
