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.
