Conscious Journeys is a DMC (Destination Management Company) specialized in conscious and experential travel in Asian Countries, with our main office in India (Kolkata), and our branch offices in Sri Lanka (Kochchikade), Bhutan (Thimpu), Thailand (Bangkok) and Myanmar (Yangoon). We are your ideal partner to organize your tours in Asia. We have a deep knowledge of every destination, so we are able to select the best experiences you can live during your tour.
There are places in Asia able to amaze you for the beauty of nature and culture of ancient civilizations. There are so many places in Asia which deserve to be visited, but some of them are very special and unique: we want to bring you here! If you are fascinated by nature or culture or if you really want to get inside the real essence of a particular destination and understanding its complexity and diversity, we have selected unique places, experiences and hotels which will make your holiday unforgettable.
Being present in all the Countries we promote, we have a thorough knowledge of every single experience you are going to live and every location you are going to visit. We personally experience on a first hand all the activities we propose, inspecting directly all the heritage resorts or eco-lodges, where you are going to stay. Sometimes living in a particular resort or lodge in the nature, it is a real life experience. We select all our hotel as to allow you to live an exclusive adventure into the nature and culture of every single destination. After a long and sometimes tiring tour out in the nature or in a city, getting pampered in an exclusive hotel with all comfort is the best way to discover a destination with the right mood and mindset. Experiential or conscious tourism does not necessarily means staying in a backpacking hotel. Comfort and exclusive services are for us essential part of lifetime experiences…
A real journey that does not means just to visit the best-known cities in order to tick them off one’s list of places visited, but living the most meaningful organised experiences available in those places. We want you to discover the real soul and the cultural essence of every destination, as the most important souvenir to bring back home after your trip. Travelling with us we attempt to make you go beyond the superficial elements of a place and explore it more comprehensively. Generally, travel industry has taken a more experience-driven route, that is why experiential travel has steadily been on the rise over the last few years. Nowadays many tour operators are talking about experiential tourism, but for us living immersive experiences is really at the core of our tours. For us experiential tourism is at the centre of our operations, so that all our travellers can have a direct opportunity for cultural, social and emotional enrichment.
“A pilgrimage distinguishes itself from an ordinary journey by the fact that it does not follow a laid-out plan or itinerary, that it does not pursue a fixed aim or a limited purpose, but that it carries its meaning in itself; by relying on an inner urge which operates on two planes: on the physical as well as on the spiritual plane. It is a movement not only in the outer, but equally in the inner space, a movement whose spontaneity is that of the nature of all life, i.e. of all that grows continually beyond its momentary form, a movement that always starts from an invisible inner core (…)

Asian countries have a rich and deep spiritual heritage. In every Country we work we offers spiritually fulfilling experiences to travellers who are seeking to experience directly spiritual practices and techniques of Eastern religions. During our tour we propose direct exposure to spiritual practices of the Country you are visiting, such as meditation, yoga, ayurveda or conscious trekking. By conscious tourism we try to foster authentic, sincere and intimate encounter between the Eastern wisdom with Western pragmatism, so that the travel experience can be reworked in a creative way in the personal life of all the people and communities involved. To this end every tour will become a path of personal growth through a mutual exchange among travellers, and between them and local communities. Our motto is to “re-discover yourself through travel”.
Travelling in Asian countries is not always so straightforward like in the West. That is why we select carefully all our vehicles, drivers and guides, so to make your journey as safe as possible. We pay a high attention that our driver will respect all rules and regulations in all different locations, even in the most challenging road of Himalayan mountains. Safety is always our main concern. We have a big number of national guides speaking most of European languages. Moreover, we offer 24 hours assistance also via WhatsApp in your own language. In most of the cases we give you wi-fi connectivity also in the car during our transport so that you can always communicate with us.
Preserving biocultural diversity is our main objective. Travelling sustainably means to respect the culture and the environment of our planet. Therefore, we recognize the centrality of local hosting communities and their right to be the leaders in sustainable and socially responsible tourism development in their territory. While traveling with us you will contribute to safeguard the environment and to foster the economic conditions of local people.
