Worth getting out of bed for

Activities are tailored to guests’ interests and fitness level. While adjusting to the altitude (a lofty 2,400 metres up), partake in guided meditation, request a yoga class or settle into planters’ chairs to read and admire views of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks. Those interested in hikes can take to the nearby mountains for hour-long picnic strolls, all-day hikes or even an overnight trek to a remote campsite. For a taste of local culture, guides can arrange a visit to a nearby village school and Hindu temple.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this mountain retreat in India and unpacked their hiking boots and pashminas, a full account of their outdoorsy break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Shakti 360° Leti in the Himalayas…

For those who’d like the sensation of a mountain trek without the discomfort of flimsy tents, icy basecamps and food from packets, Shakti 360° Leti is a mountain retreat that showcases the best of India’s peaks with dignity, culture and plenty of comforts. In lieu of pitching tents, visitors retreat to one of four cosy cabins, each with a glass wall facing the mountains. Rather than zip into sleeping bags, bed down in a pashmina-draped double bed, secure under warm duvets. This is an escape from mod-con mania, so most who visit Shakti spend time hiking, trekking or practising yoga with snow-capped views. At the end of the day, simulate campfires with a crackling fire in the cabin fireplace, and enjoy private dinner of Tibetan momos or Indian curry using the best local ingredients.
