Why Choose Gratstays

GEF is working towards an alternative lifestyle opportunity in Rural India through the Gratstays.

Gratstays is a social initiative to develop a sustainable ecosystem for marginalized, indigenous communities to access rural India and a platform that connects people who want to have remote, rustic experiences. We curate unique and authentic experiences in locations slightly off-the-beaten-path to encourage a substantial way of traveling while strengthing cultural interaction between backpackers and the native. We bring travelers to the doors of local hosts, to their warm hospitality, and to the depth of existential essence found only in cultural exchange.
