Shakti Ladakh Village Experience with Indus Valley Trek

0
  • 11 nights
  • Luxury Private Tour
  • Hand Picked Hotels

Ladakh has long been on the map for backpackers, mostly staying in and around Leh, it is has not yet come on the radar of the adventurous luxury traveler. As such, Shakti Himalaya has designed a Ladakh Himalaya ‘village’ experience that avoids the commercialized capital, Leh and takes you off the beaten track to these untouched villages in the Indus valley.

Shakti has six village houses in Ladakh, each with its own unique charm. The itinerary below is a brief example of what we offer in Ladakh, however, each client’s itinerary is tailored specifically to suit his/her interests. The itinerary does not in any way reflect the ‘best’ possible routing and is simply a sample.

 

As with all Shakti journeys, this is only a sample but showcases our Shakti Ladakh Village Experience combined with a 3 night trek, Shakti style. Shakti has two houses in the village of Nimoo, so again this journey will start in one of those. From here, head west towards our house in Stok and onwards for the trek. Round off the Ladakh visit with time spent in one of Shakti’s beautiful houses.

As you will be acclimatizing today, we recommend that you spend the day taking it very easy relaxing at your house.
