"Discover Dharavi - Asias Biggest Slum" MISCELLANEOUS Tip by iwtgtj

MISCELLANEOUS, Mumbai: 24 reviews and 44 photos

  In the middle of Dhavari
by iwtgtj

This is a very different type of activity as most of you will imagine or have experienced. It is definitely off the beaten path, off the paved sidewalk.

Reality Tours and Travel take you right into Dharavi, the biggest slum in Asia, but not for the purpose of sight seeing. The objective is to make you better understand the life of millions of Mumbaikers as they go about to make a living . Dharavi is actually more like a huge recycling factory ranging from recycling of plastic to recycling of oil containers. At the same time it provides shelter and work for hundred thousand families.

Highly recommended.

Sorry we were not allowed to take pictures inside so I just post a picture from the website of the travel agent.
