ASIA PLATEAU

Nestling in the western hills of India and overlooking the Krishna Valley lies Asia Plateau, a centre for introspection and dialogue. Over the past five decades ordinary men and women of all classes, races and religions have experienced here, a change in attitude, motivation and behaviour causing ripples in their personal lives, families, workplaces, communities, and sometimes much beyond.

Asia Plateau is used for holding the training programmes and conferences of Initiatives of Change. Asia Plateau is a 68-acre campus situated at an altitude of 1,300 meters in Panchgani, just a 100 kms. away from Pune, and 248 km from Mumbai.
