Shakti 360 Leti £££££

  • India

Shakti 360 Leti is found in a little known and compellingly beautiful corner of India. It is found high in the Himalayas at over 7000 ft, about one hour’s walk from the nearest road. There are just four stone cottages designed by a local architect and the main lodge is eco-friendly with contemporary touches. Indoors, there’s gourmet cooking, fine wine and a cosy fireplace, as well as beds adorned with pashmina blankets and fluffy duvets. Outdoors, there are mountain walks, treks, and camping experiences. Laze in planter’s chairs and enjoy the views and sunshine or maybe pack fishing gear and a picnic lunch and hike down to the river.
