Shakti Opens Himalayan Village Houses for 2019 Season 🏔🏔
Situated in the snowy plateaus of the high Indian sub-continent, the old kingdom of Ladakh is often referred to as ‘Little Tibet’. With a high-altitude desert nestled in majestic mountains and deepest blue glacier lakes it is one of the most remote and wildly romantic places on earth. The atmosphere is one of serenity and silence, punctuated by the chimes of Buddhist temples and fluttering prayer flags.
• @shaktihimalaya offers a unique 'village house' experience, combining simplicity with an authentic subtle luxury that takes you on a journey to untouched villages in the Indus valley. Delicious, seasonal dishes from local ingredients are a welcome sight after after a day’s walking through the villages and landscapes of this untouched and pristine landscape. Escorted by local porters and guides, explore villages, schools, temples, monasteries and markets immersing yourself into the culture of Ladakh, its people, spirituality and traditions.The walks, bespoke to fitness levels, are a true escape from the hustle of modern life and guests return again and again to experience the magic and peace. Shakti also offers camping in isolated but beautiful locations, with the chance to spend the night in a tented camp under some of the clearest night skies to be found in the world. River rafting is also offered on the Indus and Zanskar rivers for the more adventurous and thrill seeking. The houses themselves have been harmoniously and sensitively created by designer Eleanor Stanton to reflect the gentle setting and boast the softest beds in the Himalayas!
