Heritage Walks; a new trend of exploring the culture - Hashtag Magazine

The post-pandemic era has fuelled and propelled a desire to explore culture through tours throughout one’s own country. Let us consider ourselves fortunate that India has a lot to offer in this regard, with its rich heritage, diverse cultures, and opening up to new tourism avenues. P. Manisha introduces this new and exciting aspect of tourism, Heritage walks, to anyone looking for an unhurried and peaceful exploration of this country.

Diving into the definition of Heritage Walks

Often times the blaze and glamour of the place overrides the regional experience, heritage walks emerged as an answer to those that are interested in experiencing the culture of a place intimately. A leisure pace learning about the history and experiencing the culture of a place is the concept behind these intellectually stimulating walks. Meet up with strangers or reunite with your own group of friends to walk through the unexplored treasures of the country vis-à-vis the heritage walks.
