Our Dharavi Slum Tour is a humbling and eye opening experience. The slum, the largest in Asia, and home to more than a million people and is a place of hardship and poverty, but also one of humour, enterprise and activity. It’s estimated that the slum has an annual turnover of around US$665 million. The main industries are recycling, pottery, soap making, embroidery and leather tanning. On your visit you are also able to visit the residential area of the slum where real people live their lives in truly staggering conditions; narrow dirty lanes, open sewers and cramped huts are unfortunately the norm. In a city where house rents are among the highest in the world, Dharavi provides a cheap and affordable option to those who move to Mumbai to earn their living.
