A village experience in India’s greatest skateboarding destination!

Janwaar is a small village in rural Madhya Pradesh. It’s 45 km away from the world famous Khajuraho Temples and 7 km from Panna. It’s the home of India’s biggest skatepark.

All participants stay in homestays with our Barefoot Skateboarders.

Besides skateboarding we’ll do other sports like balancing on a slackline and swimming in the lake.
We do nature walks and sit around the bonfire in the evenings.
We have regular sessions in our open air libraries.
We offer various workshops in the fields of arts, farming and wildlife awareness.
And we take the kids to Pandav Falls, Raneh Falls and we visit the Khajuraho Temples.
