Get the true essence how a Punjabi traditional lifestyle today looks like by visiting a nearby local Amritsar village close to the India-Pakistan border. Inspiring as well as educating, this village tour offers a fascinating opportunity to know the innocent way of living and the warmth of the local people, thus giving a whole new perspective to discovering the real Punjab.

Learn many things about the lives and times of the people of the village directly from them. Get a chance to help them out in their daily chores such as milking their cows, plowing their fields over a tractor ride, preparing rotis on a traditional clay oven – chulha, preparing fodder and feeding their livestock, picking fruits and cutting vegetables from their own farms. Get into their attire by wearing a turban or pagri, dancing bhangra in their group and take some amazing pictures together. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in a friendly village family house which is prepared from homegrown vegetables, oils and is as fresh as it can be.

Our village tour starts early in the morning to take a ride to the nearby farm and enjoy the beautiful sunrise in the fields. This slow-paced tour is suitable for travelers of all age. The activities chosen are very simple and can be carried out even by kids with the supervision of our guides and our friendly village people. The tour is also great for those who seek a deeper understanding of agriculture in Punjab – season of cultivation and collection of products such as wheat and paddy and know more about their utilization of the natural resources.

Our Amritsar Village Tour is designed to complement the Amritsar Wagah Border Tour, which offers a whole new way to get familiar with the border ceremony and sighting historical monuments, somehow lost and have become unknown. Before the intense border ceremony experience, this will be a perfect opportunity to know about the lives and times of the residents of the village folks who share similar lifestyles of the folks on the other side of the border.
