What can be better than spending Summers in the lap of the Himalayas. This season, spend some quality time with your family at the River House – on the banks of the mighty Indus.
The luxurious four bedroom house and her smaller 3 bedroom sister, are surrounded by the rich green floodplains. With a stunning view of Stakna, Matho and Thiksey monasteries; enjoy this place midst of beautiful, snow-capped peaks of the Stok Kangri mountain range. Saved from near ruin and restored in an authentic Ladakhi style, the homes are minimalist yet sophisticated in style, using local woods, natural materials, and Buddhist iconography. Colours are neutral so as not to detract from the wonderful views outside. Inside the bedrooms are kitted out with superb mattresses, fine cotton sheets and fluffy duvets. Bathrooms contain soothing bath products, perfect for the dry Ladakhi climate.
The house has dedicated activities for children including spending a day with a younger monk. One can learn Yoga and meditation with a Monk trained at the Mahabodhi Centre – an international centre for meditation. For those interested in alternative medicine/naturopathy you may visit the local Amchi / Tibetan medicine man. He will listen to your pulse and tell you about your ailments and prescribe herbal Tibetan medication. Shakti also offers camping in isolated but beautiful locations, with the chance to spend the night in a tented camp under some of the clearest night skies to be found in the world. River rafting is also offered on the Indus and Zanskar rivers for the more adventurous guest. Accompanied by local porters and guides, guests will walk between villages, visit local schools, temples, monasteries and markets, to get a full understanding of the culture of Ladakh, its people, religion and customs.
Shakti Ladakh (available from May to end September annually) offer 7 night package from Rs. 3.6 lacs per person based on 2 sharing, and including private accommodation in village houses on a fully inclusive basis including all meals, beverages, and all activities.
