This experience will take you back to the roots of the city - the village. Life is slow paced here so it’s ideal for the visitor looking to enjoy the pleasures of slow travel. But there are rhythms here too which have been set down the centuries from generation to generation in this rural landscape. It is the earth, the sun, the rain that comprises the grammar of the narratives that are written about life here. The seasonal changes bring their own beauty to this pastoral way of life.
Organic living is at the heart of this world. The music, the dance, the folklore, the spiritual inspirations are reflective of the conversations that touch upon the most important aspects of a village life…the sowing,…the harvests…wedding…births…deaths…the weather –all bound together in a never-ending cycle.
Agra By Cycle helps you discover the unexplored and untouched rural beauty of India and experience the tradition and lifestyle of villagers, indulge in local delicacies, witness local traditions and rituals and learn about the region's folk art, crafts, legends, music and dance.
