"Esoteric tourism is a culture travel, the art of pilgrimage by sacred places of our planet,— says Anna Shokina, tour operator Centre of esoteric tourism.— Over the recent years there is an extraordinary rise in demand for this kind of tourism, and this is because people engaged in their spiritual growth." In these tours combine recreation and leisure, journey and adventure, and a variety of health practices help a person become more strong and healthy.

According to Valentina Kurochkina, head of the esoteric sports club "Unexplored world", "the main objective of esoteric tourism is the attempt to reveal the goals and values of human existence, the desire to teach him to be happy, not yesterday or tomorrow but here and now."

As such, the classification of esoteric tours does not exist, however, experts identify several species, including familiarization, mystical, Wellness. The main difference between these tours from the usual is that the main goal is obtaining spiritual knowledge (the theory in this direction is of great importance, in particular, seminars and workshops in nature) and practical skills as well as increasing the spiritual level of a person.

"Esoteric tours different from the usual that, in addition to the historical cutoff, we are interested in the energy area, which is sent, in particular, its history and mythology," says Anna Shokina.

Esoteric tours are carried out both within Ukraine and abroad. The most popular destination for such tours within the country is Crimea. According to tour operators, most of the Peninsula impregnated with positive energy and therefore, problems with the choice of location does not occur: "According to legend, the Crimea was the dwelling place of the Amazons, the Peninsula is saturated with the feminine energy and has a positive impact on the spiritual development of man." Places of power are uneven, but most of them are near Sevastopol, in the Bakhchsarai area and on the southern coast of the Crimea. In addition, these places are known as a health resort. So, it is very popular treatment in Yevpatoria , a seaside resort town.

Depending on the desires and preferences of the client, the tour operator offers Hiking, road and autopedestrian tour options, accommodation in hotels or tents, the presence of chefs, sporting events (particularly diving), and other services.

Arriving in Delhi with backpacks you will instantly become a target for the guys willing to help good and cheap to live. This guide will definitely get your Commission, for what you brought, so naturally you'll pay more than if you would have come yourself. So, if you are sure that you are able to find housing
do not greet anyone, don't talk and ignore all attempts to help you.

What would you not buy in India - be sure that the name you cost at least 2-3 times higher than real.
So, start to be traded as a maximum of half price. And even better and lower price to call.
Ideal - to estimate the price that you are willing to pay and called a few smaller - slowly build up bargaining.

About the pearls, I already wrote - one that is remarkable for a natural ocean - not always so in reality. The seller may even bring a lighter to show that it is not plastic. But, if the bead has split - it becomes clear that this cultured pearl is found inside a plastic ball. ...

Despite the fact that Khajuraho is one of the most visited tourist places of Central India is, after all, the Indian province. It is my second home:)

Outside glass hotels Khajuraho live like 100 years ago (and hotels inside the glass for at least 30 years ago). Where main street ends, starts flowery alleys with colorful houses, located with the observance of the caste system.

Pieces of asphalt roads infused with the dusty ground. Districts and separate houses alternate with gardens, wastelands, and lakes. There are no movie theaters and shopping centers.

Men shave in the open salons a terrible knife.

In the heat of the family sleep on that such roofs side by side:

And sometimes at night the beds are submitted directly to the streets.
Here never saw the vacuum cleaner, and sold washing machines of the type "baby" from my deep childhood can't compete with the laundresses.

People here start the day with a bath treatment in any bodies of water, every day clean the house regularly and wash your clothes. ...
