anyan Tree Ringha – Discover the mystical highlands of Shangrila
One of the most secluded hideaways in the world, Banyan Tree Ringha nestles in a mystical valley, surrounded by Himalayan peaks, in an area designated as the ‘official Shangri La’.
Built in typical Tibetan style, the authentic village houses have been painstakingly dismantled and relocated to their remote new home, and interiors handsomely upgraded. Whether you opt for a suite or farmhouse, the accommodation is spacious and characterful, and acres of hardwood are scattered with colourful rugs, enormous beds and hand-hewn wooden bathtubs.
The real reason to visit however is snowy summits, serene valleys and tranquil lakes of this untouched region. Mesmerising in every season, day long treks through this spellbinding terrain, followed by transformative treatments at the heavenly spa, are a must. Other highlights include clay hot pot dinners cooked table-side, visits to family homes in the surrounding villages and dressing up in Tibetan costume to attend local festivities.
Accommodation: 32 Tibetan Farmhouses & Lodges
