experience a different way of life with shakti

September 27th, 2011

Now that autumn has arrived, Shakti is gearing up for this season’s most unique getaways: Shakti Kumaon and Shakti 360° Leti will be open from October 1 until April 30, 2012.

Located in Uttarakhand, a north Indian state known to locals as the “abode of the gods,” Kumaon is nestled between the snow-capped peaks of the Great Himalaya Range and the breathtaking Almora and Nainital hills, making it the perfect destination for a one-of-a-kind escape full of authentic, culture-rich Hindu experiences.

Travelers will meet friendly locals and explore ancient temples, some of which are Hinduism’s most spiritual and beloved places of pilgrimage and worship. Nights will be spent in traditional village houses that have been lightly retouched to include Western creature comforts.

Enhance a Kumaoni experience with a three-night stay at Shakti 360˚Leti, the magnificent four-cabin mountain retreat perched at an impressive 8,000 feet.  No need to bring your Blackberry: with no electricity or Internet connectivity, you can truly go “off the grid,” unplug, and experience a more spiritual way of life.

Rates begin at $1,307 per person based on two or three adults traveling, and include accommodations, food and beverage, activities, accompanying English-speaking guide, porters, car at disposal, taxes, and roundtrip transfer between Kathgodam train station or Pantnagar airport and village houses. A three-night, four-day package at 360˚ Leti starts at $1,916 per adult, based on two traveling on a twin/double share basis. Rates include roundtrip transfer between Shakti Kumaon and Shakti 360˚ Leti.
