Indian Himalayas

Now that winter is finally over, you may think it’s time to close up shop on the vacation planning but, in fact, it is the perfect time to go somewhere totally off the beaten track: the Indian Himalayas.

Shakti Ladakh, part of Shakti Village Experiences opens this Saturday, May 15. With Shakti, guests stay in traditional village homes which have been adapted to provide proper comforts without compromising their authenticity. Accompanied by local porters and guides, travelers go on ‘soft adventure’-style walks between the villages and through the epic landscapes surrounding them.

Experience the dizzying natural wonder of the Ladakh village, which is located at an elevation of over 11,000 feet. Traditionally a backpacker’s mecca, Ladakh is perfect for travelers looking to immerse themselves in rural North Indian life and drink in the untouched and unrivaled views of epic landscapes.

And be sure you stay at least 6 days so you can acclimatize to the high altitude and let the awesome beauty of the snow-capped peaks change the way you think about ‘vacation.’
