In the Bageshwar district, near the peaks of the great Himalayas in the northern hill state of Uttarakhand.
Trekking for three days from Kathgodam railway station through remote villages, lush pine forests and crisp mountain scenery before arriving at the stunning Shakti 360° Leti, a solar-powered mountain eyrie retreat. With luxe cabins that combine traditional design and modern comfort, you can chill out and enjoy scenic views or go on more treks high into the surrounding snow-capped mountains.
Even if you were to drive to Shakti 360° from Kathgodam station, it’s still a twoday journey from Delhi and then an hour’s hike along a boulder-strewn track, so we’re talking really remote.
Seven-night full package for Shakti 360° Leti and Shakti Kumaon VillageWalk from Dh17,640 per person, see www.shaktihimalaya.com.
Jet Airways flies from Dubai to Delhi, from Dh1,005.
