Without Cultural Heritages not many places across the world would have much to offer as attractive tourist sites. Hence even in our Mainstream Tourism packages, we integrate Heritage Tourism.
It is a tour for attaining spiritual improvement in the search to know our real self, the true meaning of life and nature of our consciousness. The body is just a limited form of our true existence – the eternal. Spiritualism looks to bridge the gap between our outer and inner self. When we are awaken to the true nature of self, we discover an inner peace that liberates us from events or circumstances in the world around, a quiet but profound inner fulfilment. Spiritual Tourism also encompasses Cultural Tourism that relates to the ever present human search for meaning, for wisdom and for answers to life’s most profound questions, both artistic and historical interests.
Our Spiritual Tour entails respecting nature and ecology, a deeper appreciation of the rich and diverse spiritual heritage of humanity, supporting socioeconomic inclusion and empowerment of local communities especially vulnerable groups.
By virtue of running such immersive programs, we had some exciting glimpses into the many-layered transforming power of spiritual tourism like mystic experience on the spiritual insights, albeit on a small, personal and grassroots scale.

Any place where you can be in oneness with nature .. just opening up your eyes and seeing the vast horizon... As you trudge through the mighty mountains and you shall experience divine presence...Or as you traverse through the meandering alleys, where spirituality combined with history waits to greet you... it can be also be at a sacred shrine nestled in beautiful lap of nature. We do not understand spiritual tourism as mere visit of temples or shrines and performing rituals. Spiritual Tour can encompass cultural pursuits, both artistic and historical interests.
