Situated in the far north of the Indian Subcontinent at over 3500m (11,500ft), high on the western end of the Tibetan plateau, Ladakh is often referred to as ‘Little Tibet’. With a high altitude desert, dominated by rugged, snow-capped peaks, colourful oases, deep turquoise lakes, and studded with thriving Buddhist monasteries, it is one of the most picturesque places on earth. The strong Buddhist culture prevails and makes it a wonderfully warm and welcoming place to explore.
Shakti Ladakh has seven spacious and beautifully done up houses scattered around the valleys and a visit to each of them will make a hugely rewarding trip. Some are close to more mainstream and important monasteries and others are situated in stunningly beautiful distant valleys.
Combine rafting with bicycling, with walking, with picnics fit for kings, with archery, with village exploration, with monastery visits and hours of relaxation time on a hot, sunny rooftop with a good book and a drink and a view from heaven; and you can’t want for much more out of a holiday.
With much of Ladakh really being the preserve of the backpacker until recently, Shakti Ladakh has changed all that and a 10 day holiday to Ladakh makes the perfect summer holiday for friends and families – relaxing, beautifully cared for, yet exhilarating!
