There is nowhere on Earth more soul-soothing than the Himalayas, with soaring, snowcapped mountain peaks and never-ending hills. Step off the beaten path and spend seven days hiking through the hills, rafting the rivers and marveling at monasteries of the Indus Valley.
You’ll stay at a different Shatki Himalaya Village House each night before arriving at Tso Moriri (Lake Moriri) to disappear even further off the grid — it is the largest of India’s high-altitude lakes, fed with crystal-clear water by local springs and snowmelt from the lofty Himalayan peaks; the lake is a sacred place of calm for many Ladakhi people. Meet the nomadic tribes who use the lake for water and listen to stories of their culture and history as you camp here for two nights with a Shakti host.
Throughout the journey, you’ll be accompanied by an English-speaking guide, private chef, support guide and porters, and a car is at your disposal.
