Shakti India - Private Tours and Culture Experiences

Those interested in travel to India know well the usual “circuit” of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and Mumbai, staying in familiar five-star luxury hotels and barreling from one destination to the other by car or train. What is missing from these itineraries is a chance to comfortably see the most remote and stunningly beautiful regions of India.

It’s now possible to do that with Shakti‘s private walking tours and culture experiences. Shakti offers transformative village-to-village walks in the awe-inspiring Indian Himalayas. Daily distance traveled ranges from about three to ten miles. Guests overnight in village houses that have been adapted for Western comforts, sleeping under Egyptian cotton sheets, wrapped in cashmere throws, and enjoying delicious, freshly prepared meals from a personal chef.

While all the modern conveniences are in place, the real luxury is in the very simplicity of these experiences, and the chance to engage with the homeowners, monks, and other village locals. Take advantage of the opportunity to unplug from the technological matrix and relish the downtime to read and meditate.

The exclusive private tours from Shakti offer an inspiring look of the world beyond the towering peaks of the Himalayas, linking nature, culture and beauty in an intense and enigmatic luxury vacation experience in three distinct regions: Kumaon, Sikkim and Ladahk.

  1. 7 Night Tour – Ladakh: known as ‘Little Tibet,’ a bastion of Buddhist calm amidst a dramatic moon-like landscape. Live in villages, learn local customs, and experience Himalayan mountain life up close and first hand. 7-night stays start at $3,535 per person, based on two to three adults.  May 15 – September 1
  2. 4-Night Tour – Sikkim: breathtaking virgin forests aflutter with prayer flags, colorful monasteries, and the hulking presence of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain. Not unlike its neighbor, Bhutan. Orchids, anyone? Sikkim is home to over 400 species. 4-night stays start at $1,880 per person, based on two to three adults. October 1 – April 30
  3. 3-Night Tour – Kumaon: staggering views that include the snow-tipped twin peaks of Nanda Devi, India’s second highest mountain. Walk through forests of grey pine, cedar, and rhododendron, and pass through villages and by small shrines to Hindu gods. 3-night stays start at $1,245 per person, based on two to three adults. October 1 – April 30

Prices for the Shakti village experiences are inclusive of all taxes, accommodations, meals and beverages, activities, English-speaking, well-educated local guides, porters, a private chef, and vehicles when necessary. Prices depend upon the specific itinerary and number of travelers in the group; flights are not included.

For those wanting to add further components to their travel, sister company Banyan Tours & Travels can arrange onward travel throughout the rest of India and Sri Lanka, with their expert consultants and travel specialists making every effort to customize the itinerary to a traveler’s specific interests.
