Village Homes Ladakh
Excellent standards without the big price tag
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Traditional Accommodation
This is simply one of our favourite products on the subcontinent. Though 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 traveller. As such, our partners Shakti Himalaya have designed a 'village house' experience that avoids the over commercialisation of Leh and takes you out, off the beaten track to one of six local homes in unspoilt villages in the Indus valley. The homes, some of which are over 200 years old, are in perfect unison with the surrounding villages and in addition to offering insight to local life and that true 'away from it all' feel, are tastefully modernized with personal chef and your 24/7 host on hand. As an extension to the Ladakh Village Experience, Shakti also operates an exclusive Shayok River journey that will take you along the old Silk Route into the remote Nubra valley.
