360 Leti, Almora, India
Located around a five hour drive from the nearest town of Almora this is an exclusive Himalayan retreat with stunning mountain views and crisp clean air. The 4 luxury cottages can be reached only on foot, an hour and a half walk from the road end. The beautifully designed en-suite cottages are extremely well furnished and have some of the most comfortable beds in India, despite being a modern building the use of glass and local stone really is impressive and yet in keeping with the surroundings. For the more active the area can be explored on a variety of accompanied walks with a picnic, while those just wishing to relax with a book will find this a perfect setting.
There is one main building where you will find some very comfortable seating, a big open fire place, a good selection of books and the dining area, it is open plan and very cosy. This truly is a unique property which provides luxury in the Himalaya that is unrivalled, the staff are extremely attentive and the only downside is that at some stage you have to leave!
Please note that the path to 360 Leti has some small steep sections and it is rocky and narrow in places so it is important that you are sure on your feet. Your luggage is carried by porters so all you need is a camera and some water. You can stop as often as you like and take in the stunning views, however please note the walk can take longer if the path has been effected by weather conditions.
