Punjabiyat, meaning 'quintessential Punjabi', is meant to be an expression of the jest and effervescence of the Punjabi culture and its large heartedness. Located about an hour’s drive from Amritsar amidst vast blooming green fields, this is the agricultural heartland of Punjab. Lush green fields as far as eyes can see, glittering in the sun and merging into the distant horizon.

IvyPlus Network invites you to a weekend getaway to Punjabiyat, near Amritsar to experience the tranquillity of countryside and farm life. Enjoy farming activities around the area, go for a tractor ride to the nearby village and an early morning walk to listen to Ardas at the local Gurudwara.

Here's the plan:

Day 1: You will be met at Amritsar Rail Station or Airport anytime before 12 Noon and driven to Punjabiyat (1 hour). On arrival you enjoy some typical north Indian lunch at the stunning farm setting of Punjabiyat. In the evening, you will taken on a beautiful nature walk to the nearest dairy farm and participate in milking of the buffaloes or cows. Later tonight enjoy some typical Punjabi snacks with bonfire followed by a lavish dinner at the lodge.

Day 2: Wake up early morning to go for a short walk to the nearby Gurudwara for the Ardās ceremony to experience Punjab at its purest. After a leisurely breakfast at 09:30am you will be taken to enjoy the rural experience of Punjab by visiting the nearby village and the famous Sikh museum nearby on a tractor ride.

After the tractor ride, you will return for lunch to enjoy authentic Punjabi food on charpoys under a tree or by the tubewell plunge pool of the property. You will be served traditional Punjabi lunch - including Makke Di Roti, Sarson Da Saag, Stuffed Naan, Butter Chicken, Vegetable, Raita and of course Dal makhni with white butter. Wash your lunch down with a glass of Lassi. Finally, end the meal with Kheer made of Sugarcane.

In the evening, we play a match of kabaddi, a popular punjabi sport. We end the night with some typical north Indian barbecue snacks & dinner with a bonfire.

Day 3: After breakfast, we leave for Amritsar and spend the morning visiting the Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh. We have lunch at the famous Bhrawan da Dhaba, post which we spend the afternoon taking a guided tour of the recently inaugrated Partition Museum.
