Yes we’re still in Asia, although honestly this could almost anywhere and that’s kind of the point. Our earlier posts on the Wanakarn pools is sort of very specific to tropical latitudes, however a lean to cottage propped up against an old stone wall can work just about anywhere. This happens to be the Shakti 360 Leti in Uttarakhand, India – just try and remember that.
Creating a good semi-permanent camp site is generally something found in African Safari hotels. They also tend to be freestanding, put up some sort of a frame and stretch out the canvas. Here the semi-permanent takes a different approach, it’s almost fully permanent, although super low tech. A good stone wall with a wood frame holding some windows and a canvas awning pulled over.
The inside is just as simple, but equally as stunning. The stone continues throughout the room. Simple wooden furniture and check it out, even a small wood burning stove for heat.
