Trek through a Kurumbas village

Posted by Raminder Chowdhary August - 20 - 2013 0 Comment

We are pleased to share with you some images from our recent treks through some of the Kurumbas villages.  These hamlets are located between 3000 – 5000 ft above MSL and usually on very steep slopes.  Lack of basic amenities is evident and clean water remains a challenge. We share this with our readers to create awareness about the nature of tribal villages and dwellings.  Enjoy the images
