During the times devoid of technology, the ancient people navigated their way through jungles and islands with their prior knowledge, using a sextant or an olden day compass. However, with technology constantly evolving, the people of today have lost touch with nature, and are unable to navigate themselves without relying on what they know best – technology.
Although the ancient art of navigating with the help of basic tools &map has long been forgotten by many, armed forces around the world still get trained by the old school methods, to stay prepared just in case need arises. And that’s exactly what Discovery Village aims to bring back, and in the process, hone some of the survival skills we require in today’s world.
