Tour description

Welcome to my tour where you will experience India's traditional way of wrestling.

India's wrestling is played in sandpit and Maharashtra state of India is famous for wresting because of its red soil.

Our Tour will start at the meeting point (or if you want we can decide the new place of meeting)

  • From the meeting point we will head to wrestling akhada
  • After reaching there, you will get chance to meet wrestlers practicing in akhada where you  will get to know routine of wrestlers in akhada. 
  • You can see Wrestlers warm up sessions in the most traditional way and later on you can experience the thrill of the sport when they tussle with each other to pin the opponent
  • If you are enthused and want to try the sport for fun, I will help you, or if you just want to be a spectator its good

Based on our meeting timing sequence of the point visit will be decided.

I am looking forward to taking you on this unique tour!!!

This is a nice way to discover some less kown indian culture. It's a very simple activity but wrestlers were passionated so you could ask a lot of question about the sport. Mayuresh is a really kind and nice guide.
