Himalayan Retreat.

My young friend Sandeep has written this guest post for the benefit of those readers who had commented on the post about my eventually migrating to Sandeep’s resort and becoming the resident Swami.


Without much ado, here is his guest post.

“One of my life’s ambitions (if I live long enough and save enough money) is to own and run a small Himalayan resort.

Here is the website of one of the new breed of Himalayan resorts for the adventurous. This is a luxury resort high up in the mountains that offers solitude, great views, clean and hygienic food and most importantly, hot showers and clean toilets. It caters to rich Indian and Western tourists, looking for scenic treks, “village walks” and home comforts.

One of the hotel sites operated by these guys has been listed in the “Hot List” of Conde Nast Traveler magazine for 2008.

Go to the section in the site titled “Shakti experiences” and check out the photos there. Then check out the photos in the Photo Gallery to get a glimpse of the natural beauty on offer.”

If Sandeep’s resort is anything like what these guys offer, I may just decide to become a resident rather than a Swami in a corner hut. Provided of course, before Sandeep builds the place, I win the Irish Sweepstakes. Grannymar, do they still have that running? Where can I get a few tickets?
