Who are we ?

Pathil is an organisation offering cultural experiences in India, for travelers from across the globe. Founded in the year 2015 to create the right awareness of the Indian Heritage & Culture, we specialize in curating experiences suiting the likes of every traveler. We host events  that could be anything ranging from a heritage walk, cultural tour, cycling tour or even a food walk! We also conduct Inter – Cultural Trainings for expats & foreigners who stay in India for a longer duration.














What We Do

Experiential Heritage Walks

The best way to explore a city is to stroll through its early settlements and experience the life of the locals through their history, culture, houses, food, and craftsmanship.
Take a Walk or a Tour with our Experts like Historians, Indologists & Archaeologists.

Unique Nature Trails

Every place has its own diverse ecosystem that represents its natural elements and surroundings. Go on a Nature Trail with our Experts like Botanists, Ornithologists, Ecologists, Zoologists and appreciate our Natural Heritage.


Inter Cultural Trainings

A large number of MNC’s host their foreign employees, vendors, clients in India. A lack of cultural sensitivity can lead to lost business, failed assignment, staff attrition, poor client relationships. We empower these corporates with inter cultural trainings, ultimately making their stay comfortable. This can also be done for institutions for their foreign exchange students.


Exclusive Heritage Tours

There are many Heritage cities in India – each having their characteristic architecture, monuments, art, culture, traditions and food. Explore these with our experts in Heritage Studies and Indologists for a complete and authentic understanding of Indian Heritage. We offer guided tours like “The Buddhist Cave Circuit”, “Explore Ellora”, “Chalukyan art of Karnataka” and many more.

Glamping & Adventure Setups

We help resorts and developers to generate footfall on their locations by turning them into destinations. This is done by installing adventure activities to indulge through the day and luxurious camping or glamping facilities for an overnight experience.

Corporate Team Building Programs

Outbound Training is a training method for enhancing organizational performance through experiential learning. We work with corporates across industries and across levels for team building activities, conflict management, HR interventions, leadership skills, and much more.


Bespoke Workshops

We have an array of options designed especially for students, schools & educational institutions to inculcate the values of conserving our surroundings. These are creative workshops involving artists & experts and can be arranged for corporates & adults as well. Some of our workshops include Killa making, Young Archaeologists club, Life skills etc.

Museum Research & Development

With a team of Museologists, Architects, Space Designers, Design Consultants & Experts we Design new Museums, Revamp the existing ones & Create Aesthetic, Didactic & Interactive Experience Centers.
