Country Roads


This tour takes you away from the city to a world of green quilted paddy fields, ancient village temples and sacred groves. Exchange the noise and chaos of the city for the sublime serenity of green fields and sweet birdsong. Feel the traffic fumes step aside for fresh air, and tarred roads slip by to give in to living earth. A short sojourn in a farmer’s home opens up new casements to Chennai’s many charms. The countryside is really never far away from the booming metropolis and it’s so easy to come back revived and full of new energy having enjoyed the healing pleasures of its open spaces

Why you will love it

  • The tour provides an excellent chance to enjoy slow travel through the country road of Chennai
  • Opportunities to delve into village life that often has changed much over the decades
  • Enjoying a farmer’s hospitality and learning about the ways and work of the community
  • What you will experience

    Can you get high on green grass? Care to get sloshed in a paddy field? Is birdsong your idea of the great music? Do chicks of the feathered variety turn you on? Maybe it’s time to hit the road and escape to the sylvan charms of Chennai’s countryside.

    Join us as we venture into the village ways, to explore a quieter, more forgiving more organic experience of green living. Let’s pace it out a tad and take it slow and easy…breathe in the fresh air, rest our gaze on a field of emerald, on skies that are blue. Spend time in a farmer’s house enjoying village hospitality. Visit his paddy fields and sacred groves … learn the old methods of organic farming and organic cooking. Stories of village life will compete with gorgeous views for your attention. Soak up those sounds of silence, let the buzz in your ears be those of the bees, let your feet walk on soft earth, not hard asphalt.
