A kind of tribal safari park, only without the tribes, this open-air hillside complex is possibly your best chance to get a taste of India’s 450-plus tribes without actually visiting an Adivasi village. Authentic-looking dwellings – built and maintained by Adivasis (tribespeople) using traditional tools and materials – dot the hillside. There’s a mythological trail and a more conventional museum on the hilltop.
