About this activity
You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the abandoned factory of Union Carbide, the site of one of the world’s worst industrial accident in living memory.

In the early morning of December 3, 1984, a moving breeze spread a toxic dark cloud over the city of Bhopal. Forty tons of the highly toxic gas, Methyl Isocyanate, were accidentally discharged from the Union Carbide plant situated in a crowded neighbourhood of Bhopal. The result was a living nightmare for the inhabitants. They awoke to clouds of suffocating gas and began running desperately through the dark streets. The victims arrived at hospitals breathless and blind. The lungs, brain, eyes, muscles as well as gastrointestinal, neurological, reproductive and immune systems of the survivors were severely affected. When the sun rose the next morning the magnitude of the devastation was clear. Dead bodies of humans and animals blocked the streets, leaves turned black, and a smell of burning chili peppers lingered in the air. An estimated 20,000 people died and about 500,000 others suffered agonizing injuries.

After a tour of the abandoned Union Carbide factory, drive over to the ‘Remember Bhopal’ Museum. The museum has preserved the belongings and pictures of the victims of this tragedy. Also visit the Rehabilitation Centers that are trying to serve the citizens in an effort to make Bhopal a better place to live in.

After the tour you will be driven back to your hotel.
