Anyone who wants to go in search of spiritual enlightenment in India can do so in luxury, one travel journalist has claimed.

People who book flights to India with the intention of immersing themselves in the country’s spiritual culture will find that they can do so while staying in luxurious surroundings.

This is according to Ian Belcher, who wrote for the Guardian that travelling to Ladakh in the north of India offers this kind of experience.

He explained that a new set of home stay options has allowed three houses in the village of Stok to be renovated to provide luxury accommodation to travellers in a sustainable manner.

Mr Belcher noted that the sights and landscape in this region of India are memorable, describing an early morning walk to one of the temples as providing “heavenly inspiration”.

As well as recommending the walking and hiking in the region, he added that anyone on holidays to India should drive along Khardung La, which is said to be the highest road pass in the world.

Situated at more than 5,300m above sea level, the road lies approximately 26km outside Leh, the capital of the state of Ladakh.
