Himalayan Retreat and Kumaon Village Walk

A Village Walk in the Kumaon Himalaya followed by three nights at a Himalayan retreat in a stunning mountain wilderness.

The concept of the Village Walks is to facilitate an authentic ’underfoot’ experience and provide a ’snapshot’ of rural life in the Himalayan mountains of Uttarakhand state in North India. You traverse the terraced foothills with overnight ’home stays’ in various villages. As an honoured guest, the locals are keen to share their way of life so you can encounter life as it is. Accommodation is basic, although clean and comfortable, does not detract from the authenticity of the experience. Any shortcomings are more than compensated for by the genuine warmth of your hosts

After the Village Walk you spend three nights at the Himalayan Retreat at 360° Leti. Innovative language of architecture that combines age-old local building techniques with contemporary design and structural technologies, set in a stunning mountain wilderness at 2,200m, 360° Leti is a place where you can take time to reflect, and allow the space, peace and astonishingly beautiful landscape to work their magic around you.
