Located on the Agra-Fatehpur Sikri highway, Korai Village
is home to the Kalandar tribe. A day trip will show you what rural life in India is like and give you a feel for their huts, how they cook their food and how they obtain drinking water using a hand pump. The people of this village now earn a livelihood through day tours, as the money collected is used to purchase everyday items such as food and stationery for the kids. These items are then equally distributed among the families. Prior to the tours, the villagers kept bears and would host bear dances to entertain visitors and earn income. However, they lost this opportunity once the government passed animal rights laws. Foreign visitors have had a positive effect on the people of Korai Village, and villagers look forward to entertaining tourists and educating them about their lives. A tour can easily be booked by filling out a form
on their website, and the visiting charge is only $10 (£7.75) per person, which is directed towards the village’s welfare.
