Shakti Ladakh Village Houses

See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Shakti Ladakh Village Houses

The traditional architecture of Ladakh is grander in style than found in other Himalayan regions; and these six village houses have been renovated to a high level of sophistication but without compromising on the authenticity and charm.

The Tibetan-style house in Stok is on the edge of the village and has a roof terrace with superb scenic views; ideal for relaxing while acclimatising to the altitude.

The village house in Taru is another traditional Tibetan style building, though it is a little more modern than the one at Stok. Again, it is at the edge of the village with stunning views over the mountains, traditional buildings, fields and orchards.

Finally, Nimoo is the most impressive property and like the Stok house, it is has a large ground floor with a first floor built in a ' C ' shape around a courtyard. The courtyard is paved and the roof terrace above is the perfect place to soak up the ever present sun on 'the rooftop of the world'.
