Hike to Your Luxury Home High in the Himalayas

Going back to basics starts with walking there yourself. Head up to the Himalayas for some mandatory meditation and enforced check-out of the Internet. You can post photos of those sweeping mountain views when you get home

THE ONLY WAY TO GET to this remote luxury lodge in the Himalayas is on your own two feet. Propped on a ridge at 2,400 meters altitude and pointed straight at the snow-dusted Nanda Devi mountain, Shakti 360° Leti consists of four luxury eco-friendly cabins, each with glass walls, solar heating and wood-burning stoves. There’s no Wi-Fi or TV; nature is the antidote to modern distractions here. Combine your stay with a multi-day Shakti Kumaon Village Walk through the remote villages of the Himalayas.
