Overview

Bicycle on country back-roads weaving through idyllic mud-hut villages and irresistible smiles! Meet the masters of Heritage painting village Raghurajpur and enjoy a rural picnic lunch.


Special Instructions

Not recommended during summers & monsoon.

This is a 10 km cycle ride and not for the average urbanite! Travellers need to be fit & active for this one :)

Can arrange a taxi for the return leg at additional cost.

The painters of Raghurajpur comprise a long lineage of artists specialising in a unique painting style known as ‘patachitra’. Despite faded patronage, artists continue to maintain valuable traditions and technique relying solely on their craft for the families’ income. Walks Of India encourages you to purchase directly from local artists. Enjoy the ancient art of bargaining; have fun with it and keep things in perspective. Not only can you encourage a unique local art form, but also give confidence to a struggling artisan community and walk away with a beautiful painting to boot!
