Shinrin-yoku in the City: Walk the Chai in Mumbai

16 Oct 14  |  By Snigdha Manchanda

Hello Happy Feety People, Another Chai Walk - something I always look forward to hosting. Like they say, you cannot dip in the same river twice, you cannot perhaps do the same chai walk twice. This is one activity that never fails to open up my consciousness to the amazingness that this world is.

Come Saturday, I'll be curating a walking tour of iconic tea places around South Mumbai.

Time : 4 pm to 6 pm

Tickets : Rs.1500 (Includes cost of 4 teas and 4 teatime treats).

For the past walks, we have had waiting list. Hence, highly recommend you book your tickets online.

Whoever that said that our feet are little therapists said a lot much.  It's so true. So so true. Like we get all our answers if we take that long walk. Let's try it then. I'm optimistic that this will be a truly rewarding session than just chai and walk -- immersing ourselves in the sights and sounds of the city. To get to discover the villages that disguises itself so well in the street corners.  This will be an exploration. Hope we get to see, hear, smell and feel. And hopefully get an experience that is an urban equivalent to Shinrin-yoku?


Additional Notes for the Walk:

1) Meeting Point: Union Bank, Opposite BSE Stock Exchange. (This is a high security zone. Please wait until you are advised to bring out your cameras.)

2) Be kind to your feet: Please wear comfortable walking shoes. The walk involves light walking of around 30 minutes spread between 4 locations.

3) The Chai Walk will be hosted and conducted in English.
