Soak up the Enchanting Beauty of Nature

A boutique yoga retreat in the Himalayas

The Himalayas beckon you for a truly exquisite experience!

Do you need a break from the corporate jungle and the rat race you find yourself in, the toxic people you are forced to interact with apart from the pollution around you? Do you want to teleport yourself to a place where you can truly feel alive?

We have just the right vacation for you. At an altitude of 10,000 feet above sea-level (3048 metres), Rakccham, is a small hamlet that is sure to win your heart over. Here, you can listen to the melodious sounds of the Baspa River flowing nearby, the chirping of exotic birds and listen to your own inner voice.

Whether you are a novice or an expert at yoga, don’t miss the unique experience of practicing yoga amidst slow clad mountains and a meandering river that will witness the joy you feel while trying different asanas and the sun salutation in the crisp morning air.

After your session, you can let yourself be pampered and gorge on some delicacies from this quaint place. You will feel elated after supporting the local businesses and the residents of this tiny hamlet through this wonderful vacation.
