Become a World Explorer
India's remarkable diversity is reflected in its landscapes, cuisine and customs.
A journey through this exotic country will remain in your memory long after you've left its shores. India hosts some of the world's most spectacular devotional celebrations – from parades celebrating special days on the religious calendar to simple harvest fairs that pay homage to a local deities. Spirituality is the common thread that weaves its way through this vast and complex country. Whether you do yoga, meditate or are simply curious about the spiritual, you will be sure to appreciate the sacred sites and ancient rituals. Plus, you will eat like a king! In India, you'll fry, simmer, sizzle, knead, roast and flip through a deliciously diverse selection of dishes. The hungry traveller can look forward to a tasty smorgasbord of regionally distinct creations with traditional preparation techniques and presentation styles.
As a World Explorer in India, you can get to know the country and its people through various volunteer and internship programs in Jaipur, the Himalayas, or Goa. CHI works with its trusted partners agency to arrange 11 possible volunteer opportunities and 26 different internships throughout these three regions and cities.
Volunteering in India is a rewarding and life-changing experience. For example, you may be able to teach in a local school and help children learn various subjects.
WE calculated the price for two scenarios. The first scenario considers your choices above. The second scenario is the scenario that offers the best value. We also compared our prices with two other options. A hostel-stay with 3 meals per day and a hotel-stay with 3 meals per day. For the hotel-stay, we considered 1-2 star hotels because we learned from past World Explorers that most of them are traveling on a budget. However, a home-stay (staying with a host family) is substantially better than a 2-star hotel-stay when all amenities, comfort, and support are considered. Aside from that, you will be staying with people who care about you, who will be sharing their culture with you, and who will embrace you as part of their family. These, as part of your life-changing experience, are priceless!
You will be traveling abroad on a tourist visa; hence, in most countries, you can only stay up to 90 days. We understand you might want to stay longer and we designed the World Explorers program to meet your desire. Instead of staying over 90 days in a country, we allow you, the World Explorer, to participate on a second adventure on a different country. And that is not all. You can actually participate as many times as you would like (some exclusions apply). Please contact a World Explorers customer care specialist for more information.
