Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Up in the Himalayan region of Ladakh, whose landscapes are characterised by dramatic mountains and turquoise lakes. Its geography was key in protecting Ladakh from the attacks of the Chinese, hence preserving its Tantric Buddhist society.

Rooms at Shakti Ladakh Village Experience

The six village houses are dotted across six locations: Stok, Shey, Nimmu, Likir and Igu. Some have roof terraces with sweeping views, others have courtyards and all reflect the traditional Tibetan styles, made with mud bricks and wooden beams.

Food and drink

Shakti Ladakh is a fully inclusive retreat, so all food and alcohol is provided.

Facilities

The houses are inviting hideaways complete with living rooms, libraries and roof terraces which are perfect for taking in the views of your surroundings, sundowner in hand.

Activities at Shakti Ladakh Village Experience

Absorbing the local culture through village walks, school visits and market trips is order of the day at Shakti Ladakh. You’ll be accompanied by a local guide who will show you the way of life in this incredible region, giving you a solid grasp of the religion, customs and people of Ladakh. Shakti Ladakh also offer more challenging treks and camping excursions into secluded areas of exquisite natural beauty. You may climb altitudes of up to 14,000ft, and stop to camp under canvas in Shakti tents, bringing you closer to this extraordinary place. And if that isn’t enough, you might also be interested in river rafting along the Indus and Zanskar Rivers, both fed by glaciers.
