Shakti Sikkim Village Walk
Walking in style in India's Eastern Himalayan range
Located in the North East of the Indian sub continent, the Buddhist Kingdom of Sikkim shares borders with Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal and is nestled in the heart of India’s Eastern Himalayan range. These Shakti Village walks enable you to enjoy the villages and rural life in remote mountain regions. Accompanied by local porters and guides, you step out of the modern world, walking between villages that are remote, and staying in traditional village houses, which Shakti have spruced up to provide proper comfort without compromising their authenticity.
Visits to local schools, monasteries and markets can be arranged to enable you to get a full understanding of the culture of each region, its people, religion and customs. Providing authentic experiences of local life, these walks are the perfect antidote to the frenetic world that most of us live in.
For the more active walker trekking in remote but beautiful locations can also be arranged.
