Shakti Ladakh Village Experience

0
  • 09 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.

Day 2Delhi - Leh - Nimoo

Post breakfast transfer to airport to take flight for Leh.

Upon arrival at Leh, meet with our company representative and drive to the Shakti village house in Nimoo where we recommend complete rest, to aid your acclimatization. Nimoo (3190m/10463ft) is a large village situated 36km west of Leh along the Indus valley at the confluence of the Zanskar and Indus rivers. The village is characterized by impressive mountain scenery, srrounded by lush green fields and apricot, apple, and walnut orchards abound. As you will be acclimatizing today, we recommend that you spend the day taking it very easy relaxing at your house.

Day 3Nimoo

After breakfast go on a leisurely walk of the village of Nimoo with your guide for a fascinating insight into rural Ladakhi life before returning to the village house for lunch. After lunch, relax in the village house or visit the Basgo Fort in the late afternoon. At Basgo (3295m/10808ft) there are three ‘Future Buddha’ monasteries completed in the 16th century, interesting for its Islamic architecture. Relaxing evening under the stars this evening before dinner in the charming Ladakhi kitchen.

Day 4Nimoo

After a leisurely breakfast, you will drive up the Zanskar canyon to the village of Chilling (3236m/10614ft), around an hour from Nimoo. Chilling is a settlement that is traditionally home to metal smiths and has provided copper, bronze, tin, silver and iron work to Leh through the centuries.You will get the chance to see the local metal smith at work before rafting for two hours to the shores of the village of Nimoo where you will be served a picnic lunch. After lunch, relax at the village house, or if you are feeling ready to do so, either take a hike this afternoon with your guide or a cooking lesson in the kitchen with your Shakti private chef.

Day 5Nimoo - Likhir

This morning head out to Alchi(3120m/10233ft), a fascinating monastery and the only one in Ladakh to be built on flat ground, unlike the others which were always on hilltops. The temple was founded in the 11th century and is particularly interesting for its Indian and Kashmiri influences. Drive for about 20 minutes and enjoy a picnic lunch at Saspol.Afterwards drive to the village of Likhir from where you have the option of walking in to our next village house over looking the village or journey by car. The remoteness of the house is best understood in the true clarity of the stars overhead.

Day 6Likhir

Today you will visit Lamayuru, 2½ hours away. Lamayuru monastery is the most ancient monastery of Ladakh, founded in the 10th century. According to popular folktale Lamayuru was once a lake. Your guide will take you on a walk around Lamayuru monastery. After lunch visit Rizong Monastery, which is noted for its extremely strict rules and standards followed by each monk who meditates here. Alternatively, for keen trekkers there is the option of taking a moderate level trek to the village of Yangthang. This is a portion of the delightful ‘Sham valley’ trek.

Day 7Likhir - River house

Visit Phyang, located 1½ hours away from Likhir. Stop here for lunch and to visit the dramatic monastery with your private guide. The monastery houses a 900-year-old museum and contains numerous sacred shrines and frescoes dating from the royal period.

It is Shakti’s first 4 bedroom house, located by the bank of river Indus, offering spectacular views of the Stok Kangri range of mountains and three monasteries – Stakna, Matho & Thiksey. We will arrange for a visit to the local oracle later this evening.
