The little known Kumaon region lies in the northern hill state of Uttarakhand. It offers some of the most stunning mountain scenery that we know of anywhere, from the perennially snow capped peaks of the Great Himalaya range in the north to the pretty hill stations at the foothills.
Shakti 360° Leti is located in the Bageshwar district north of where our Kumaon villages are.
An innovative combination of traditional building techniques and contemporary design, 360° Leti is set in a stunning mountain wilderness at 8,000 feet. It is a place where you can take time to reflect, and allow the space, peace and beautiful landscape to work their magic around you.
Indoors, there’s gourmet cooking, fine wine and a cozy fireplace, as well as beds adorned with pashmina blankets and fluffy duvets. Outdoors there are mountain walks, treks and camping experiences. Laze in planter’s chairs and enjoy the views and sunshine or maybe pack fishing gear and a picnic lunch and hike down to the river. Yoga and meditation sessions can be arranged on request as well.
With only four private guest pavilions and a main lounge-dining area, the resort is ideal for a unique escape into serenity, without forgoing luxury and comfort.
Shakti 360° Leti can be combined perfectly with the Kumaon Village experiences to create a complete Himalayan experience.
Shakti 360° Leti is available from 1st Oct 2014 – 20th April 2015
*The closing date can change from year to year depending on weather
