Description

The Dharavi slum is a breathtaking, overwhelming experience in the heart of Mumbai, with a massive recycling industry, ultra-dense housing, and both poverty and wealth existing in close proximity. This tour will take you through the proud and industrious area of Dharavi. You will be able to see where people work, where people live and where people relax. We will show you the vast industrial areas with many important industries like the bakeries serving the whole of Mumbai. We will show you the residential areas where whole families live in a small room, local schools and even the pottery industries. If you are expecting extreme poverty and despair based on movie depictions, you will be disappointed. In fact this tour actively breaks stereotypical depictions of slums. Some of the areas will be familiar if you have seen the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as much of the film was shot in Dharavi.
