Despite the frightening reputation of this place, it is possible to have a colorful adventure in contrasting Dharavi slums.
How to stroll through the Dharavi slums in Mumbai
In the Dharavi slums people are friendly and courteous, they dress well, look neat, take pictures and communicate with travelers.

Here you can also visit local shops, street hairdressers, coffee shops and canteens. In the slums there are several hotels where you can stop for the night and all this contrasts with the backdrop of numerous mountains of garbage.

Do not think that the adventure will be pleasant. But be sure, you will get a lot of conflicting emotions bordering with shock.

How to do?

1. Ask the townspeople where Dharavi is located or look on the map.
2. Take the train to the slums and get off at one of the stations: Maxim Junction, Sion Railway, Chunnabhatti.
