Today the biggest concern or threat to the environment is "GLOBAL WARMING". Nature Quest is a mean by which one can organize them to learn about such issues and take appropriate actions. Nature Quest is there to help everyone to extend the boundaries and scope of the formal educational system, encouraging creativity and empowering individuals for constructive action.
We ask people to join us and embark on a once in a lifetime immersion experience that will teach them about India's culture, ecology, history and most of all about its people and hospitality. We look forward to hosting people who bring with them a sense of humor, respect for all cultures and who want to experience the country not as a tourist but as an intimate learner and friend.

28KMS from Dehradun city nestled between the Himalayas and the Shiwalik mountain range lays the Nature Quest site at Thangaon village. Spread on hundred acre of land with beautiful agricultural and virgin nature around, Thangaon village has a population of about 300 people where the main crop grown is ginger, corn and Maduwa (local grain). With huge campus of serene quietness- the campus provides a welcome refuge from noise and pollution of city. Covered by clear blue skies in the day, that turns into velvet star- studded canopy by the night. The golden sunrises and crimson sunset add to the peace and natural beauty of sal forests that surround the site. One can hear the river "Sawarna" flowing nearby with crystal clear waters, cold pure and tasty to drink. An experience of the kind which will soothe and enlighten you.
