After missing out on two years of travel fun and adventures, the craze for travel among people is at an all-time high! People are tempted to travel often or travel more in their bid to gratify the wanderlust within and to make up for the lost time. Equally interesting is the rising popularity of the new travel normal like domestic travel, revenge tourism, spiritual and wellness tourism, staycation, quick weekend getaways, solo trips, road trips, and short holiday breaks that sparks new life into travel in the post-pandemic world.
It is true that the travel sentiments amongst Indian travellers have also become stronger and upbeat post-pandemic. Amid the many new travel trends, Spiritual Tourism is now leading India’s travel recovery with more Indians opting to visit spiritual destinations and religious places across the country than ever before. Not just Indians, but International tourists also find coming to India to revel in the blissful aura offered by spiritual destinations in India.
A recent report revealed that Northern India witnessed the maximum demand for Spiritual Tourism, followed by the southern, western, and eastern regions of the country. As per the report, Varanasi, Tirupati, Puri, Amritsar, and Haridwar are the top five holy sites for spiritual tourism in India. The Guruvayoor Temple in Kerala and the Vaishno Devi Temple in Jammu and Kashmir has seen visitor numbers almost double in recent years. Also, it is fascinating to see an unusual interest from Gen-Z and millennials in Spiritual Tourism recently.
As a spiritual destination, India has been attracting Indian as well as international tourists with an array of sacred sites and spiritual encounters since time immemorial. But post the pandemic, there has been a sudden surge in the number of people visiting the temples and other spiritual sites across the country. While spiritual tours have always been popular among the older generation, many millennials and young working professionals are now showing a special attractiveness towards spiritual tourism.
A primary reason for the renewed interest in Spiritual Tourism in India is the hectic lifestyle and stressed work environments. Thanks to the pandemic, Indians are paying more attention than ever to their mental health and are turning to spiritual journeys as an ideal stress buster and rejuvenation therapy. Many people go on spiritual retreats in gratitude and to connect with the almighty while others to connect with Mother Nature and to find inner peace.
The best part is that the Spiritual Tours give a space to explore outdoor adventure, authentic local culture, nature, and wildlife along with wellness activities like Yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda treatments. This provides an additional push for young travellers to opt for Spiritual Tourism. The ease of travel, digital booking platforms, Wi-Fi availability, direct flights, luxury accommodation, indigenous cultural experience, and unique food experience are the other factors that contribute to the rise of Spiritual Tourism in India.
Whenever life seems chaotic and stressful, take a complete break from everything and go for a spiritual tour. Use the time away to relax, recharge, and rejuvenate,embrace the peace of mind, learn new things, and come back with a refreshed mind. To sum up, Spiritual Tourism is a life-changing experience and is worth considering the next time you plan a holiday in India.
