Aarambh Experiences

With us you can experience Khajuraho in an authentic, sustainable and diverse way. Learn more about our organised experiences.

Here you will find a detailed list of our experiences.

Our organised experiences


We organise experiences in and around Khajuraho. Whether you are an individual or a small group, there is something for everyone. You do not have to be a guest of our hotel to participate in our experiences.

Our experiences can be combined or we can put together an individual experience according to your wishes. 


What you support when you book our experiences:

✧ Our prices guarantee that we can support local community staff also during low season and low visitor times.

✧ Coordination and collaboration with the local community in the design of our experiences (no imposed tourism).

✧ We try to work with people and families in difficult circumstances.

✧ Authentic and culturally relevant experiences in respectful interaction with the local community.

✧ No mass events (maximum number of participants: 15 people).

✧ Minimum number of participants: 4 people (smaller groups/individuals are possible, but then we have to adjust the price per person upwards so that the organization pays off for us and our employees).



Some of our experiences will include the opportunity to purchase items from local stores and manufacturers. It is important for us to point out that the quality of our service and our friendliness are not dependent on whether you buy something or not! Our priority is to establish personal contact between tourists and local people. By making a purchase, you are of course supporting the local stores. However, they are not dependent on this, as our partners receive a fair payment per group, regardless of whether and how much is consumed!
