Guess what, I really want to
go back there, it was a pure
magic. Those treks in the
mountain, and that festival,
just great...

A fabulous trip, I would say
it was the best trip I have
had and i have traveled
fairly extensively. I will
definitely tell others .....  
I was very impressed with
the amount of information
we received about the areas
we traveled and the experience
we had.

I enjoyed the added company
- Gautom is great, Nawang,
Ani's, villager were very
caring accepting and genuine.  
I have truly enjoyed it all! ...  
Everything was more than expected,
but perhaps the highlight was the
stay in Ani Gompa and village near
Tawang, I can't imagine why I
balked at first.

'Why Travel if you want to feel like Home'

Our Small Difference

MaplePine Farm

Cottages & Tents


Much of what Cultural Pursuits is doing now is based on a long term plan and belief in acting locally for positive change.



Stays:  Will be in Small individual cottages with small loft so families and comfortable come and stay for a few days.  The initial phase will only be a few cottages, dining hall and kitchen, which will offer tents to accommodate more clients.  This will give the chance to rough it a little yet be pampered also with a warm cozy dining hall to relax and visit in, as well as hot showers and indoor toilet.

Offering from MaplePine Farm:  (to come)

1.       First and foremost it will be a place to ‘get away from it all’ so to say.  Forget about the stresses of city life.  It is not for all, so those who come should be prepared for a different kind of experience.

2.       We will offer specialized stays for groups in the area of fitness training and fitness achievement –from beginners to well trained.  So arrange a group of friends who want to get into a healthy lifestyle – will provide training programs appropriate to the level of fitness and set long term goals for the future.  You will be provided with simple healthy meals, daily training regimes and relaxation – massages (and eventually sauna and steam baths).

3.       We will offer Leadership programs and Team building for small groups from any walk of life: including schools, companies, private sector and corporate sector.  Offering unique style of leadership and team building programs for all.

4.       We will offer treks and visits to surrounding areas: you can come and relax and visit one of the Largest Sacred Groves in the Khasi hills – making daily short hikes into the grove or onward on what is known as the David Scott Trail – an old British Horse trail built by Captain David Scott.  You can do longer hikes and treks that will have overnight camping near rivers and other villages – to some of the toughest walking trails in the Khasi hills in an area called Khadar Shnong – deep valleys on the East side of the Shillong Cherrapunjee road.  You can stay with us and relax going to local markets, visiting the Jakrem hotsprings (only about 30 – 40 km away) visiting waterfalls and scenic areas on a daily basis.

5.  So call us and talk to us about any of the above choices and we will work something out – last but not least – come, stay in a cottage and just relax for a few days in a nice family atmosphere…..
