Many favorite destinations of the world now offer the combination of leisure and spirituality as if these two words had become new mantra in travel trend. Traveling for this purpose is focused on the experience and journey.

This kind of tourism is appropriate for those wishing to pursue the answer above.
In the journey of time, local history records that the Balinese community has a bright achievement in spiritual development. Some footprints can be encountered through the heritage at favorite destinations. Gunung Kawi sanctuary, for instance, becomes a proof of spiritual activity established during the administration of the King Anak Wungsu (11th century). Next to the cave temples occurs a series of meditation cells. The rock was cut to make some cloisters and meditation cells. At this location, ancient people can practice their meditation. It is a truly tranquil place situated at the Petanu riverside.
Another important location is nestled at the Elephant Cave or Goa Gajah, Gianyar. It is estimated to have been founded during the reign of Warmadeva Dynasty (10th century). The sanctuary is known as Kunjarapada where Kunjara (Sanskrit) means elephant and pada means location. In the mass, this name represents that it became the last destination of MaharshiAgastya in providing his spiritual enlightenment in Bali.
Today, visitors can trace back and enjoy a variety of experiences in spiritual travel, ranging from visiting great temples to ancient sanctuaries used to practice yoga. Even, yoga class has now been offered at several hotels, villas and yoga centers at main destinations of Bali. Meanwhile, for relaxation and rejuvenation visitors can try some spa treatments in the combination of traditional method and ingredients with modem technique. These are often promoted through illustrious catchphrases mentioning as product of mind, body and soul. To sum up, by visiting Bali you can enrich your experience related to spiritual and wellness. Though the tradition has been created hundreds of years ago, its practice and benefits remain relevant to modem life today.
More than that, Bali as a tourist destination also implements the concept of indigenous wisdom called Tri Hita Karana (THK). It stands for an integrated application of social, environmental and spiritual aspect in tourism development and practices. Approximately one hundred hotels or villas and tourist objects throughout Bali participate in the annual competition of THKAwards. It is intended to implement and preserve this sublime concept in their business practices. By doing so, it is expected they could give the best satisfaction to customer, surrounding community and the operator going hand in hand with the conservation of nature.
Ultimately, inspired by Hinduism, indigenous wisdom and local tradition, the island has a variety of treasures, endless activities and ‘mystery’ to explore. They have become integrated part of Balinese life. Many visitors come and go. Some get interested to join the ceremony, to roam pristine villages, or even to stay at ashrams for weeks. Hopefully, one of the activities above can become an answer for those wishing to balance their life with any achievement at hand.
