Far away from India’s regular tourist destinations, Kanker offers access to one of the country’s last unexplored frontiers - the tribal region of Bastar.

The tribal districts of Kanker and Bastar straddle central India’s eastern uplands and plateau, and are covered with one of its richest stretches of tropical forest. Since time immemorial, these have been home to a pristine world of tribal communities that have created and sustained delicate rhythms of life in harmony with diverse flora and fauna.

A visit to this region provides a rare opportunity to experience the tribal lifestyles and the heritage that lives on in ingenious ways.
