Shakti Ladakh Buddhist Monks at Thiksey Monastery

Today is, sadly, the final day of the Himalayan Film Festival at Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village. Screenings run from 1 to 9:45 p.m., so check out the schedule to squeeze in a film before it’s too late – and they’ve saved the best for last! Today’s films have been selected as the Director’s Choice, and we recommend trying to catch Tingvong, set in Sikkim, the least populated state of Northeastern India. Riding solo to the top of the world or Thin Ice, both set in the Ladakh region of Jammu Kashmir, are perfect for tails of transcendence.  

If the silver screen leaves you wanting a real-life experience, Shakti offers three distinct village experiences (in Kumaon in Uttarakhand, Sikkim, and Ladakh), and Shakti 360° Leti four-cabin hotel for treks and retreats in the Indian Himalayas. Explore trails and terraced fields between villages, catch views of the Nanda Devi, or schedule a yoga lesson at 8,000 feet above sea level!
