THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING AND YOU MUST COME

Simplicity Is Tangible. Experiences Are A Currency

Laced in rural wisdom, celebrating authentic conversations, narrating folktales and reviving an age-old fair, the Ghost Village festival is a two-day village experience festival. Tucked in the remote village of Saur, in rural Uttarakhand it aims to help you embrace the abundance of nature, collaborate with villagers to learn cool new skills and most importantly, allow yourself to be warmed up by the sheer presence of seekers, dreamers and artists from across the country.

We're camping it out in open fields surrounded by mountains!

Story

Earlier this year, Project FUEL undertook 'The Wise Wall Project'. We documented the stories and life lessons of all the families of Saur. We then painted these lessons and local folklores on the walls of all the houses of the village, both inhabited and abandoned.

During the project, many villagers recounted the fond memory of a mela(fair) that used to be celebrated with great fervor before the migration hit the belt. Realizing the cultural and economic importance of this fair for the region, the thought of its revival gave birth to 'Ghost Village Festival'. This festival is to keep up with our endeavors of increasing connectivity, improving livelihoods and to rebuilding a 'ghost' Saur.

Project FUEL believes in teaching through experience. We collect life lessons from people of all ages and backgrounds across the world and design them into interactive and performance based curriculums. We have had the privilege to take life lessons all the way to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
