Travel is about seeking unique and memorable experiences. But there seems to be some amount of saturation out of the ordinaries of monotony which has left lots of travelers dissatisfied. And thus they are now looking to expand our horizons, venture on more unusual paths and meet and connect with local cultures and people. Enter experiential travel. Rather than just sightseeing, it’s a way to authentically immerse oneself in a destination and develop a deeper understanding of its culture.
This is what defines experiential travel, a type of luxury travels which focuses more on the contentment of soul rather than visiting the glorious places of historic significance and visual appeal. As a matter of fact, some also feel that an experiential tour is a beautiful amalgamation of spiritual tour and solo travel. There is some nomadic experience which can be enthralling and then there is also a journey of soul searching that the Experiential travel brings to the table.
Though we can always make any traveling journey an experiential one but there are some specific destinations or rather countries which always take the cake. If we look at the charm and the sheer amount of attraction factor, it is the Asian subcontinent which turns out to be the most apt getaway.
India, the south Asian country has long been considered as the perfect place of experiential travel. So vast are its realms and so rich are her resources in wellness and travel that there is every bit of a possibility that you would feel like exploring yourself multiple time. The holy city of Rishikesh offers a gamut of wellness centers and places which are perfectly secluded to give you the most striking feel of how you approach life at large.
Moving down south there is the state of Kerala which is the most suited destination to get some reprieve after a taxing luxury travels of the country. The state that has marked itself as one of the ayurvedic wellness spots on the world map. Retreat your mind with the most relieving therapeutic massage and the arts of meditation which helps you open the chambers of mind to unload stress and negativity.
Nepal, a country residing on the lap of the mighty Himalayas is a country wherein the experiential tours in the form of spirituality and everyday life are closely entwined. The remote valley near the picturesque Phewa Lake, Pokhara, is not a tourist attraction of sorts. Rather it is a definition for the Wanderers for understanding the nature whilst staying the closest.
Hence, it can be deduced that even the most affluent class visiting the extravagant destinations tend to fall back on the experiential tours not because all of the want it but because they believe it is the missing link of their life; a link that helps them fructify their mundane life and fortify the thoughts for well being. Visiting places and exploring the culture could be a walk in the park but only a handful few who are not disillusioned by luxury take the plunge to discover life in a broader perspective through Experiential travel.
