Six Senses Gangtey
Gangtey

Hugging a hillside in the Black Mountains, the Six Senses lodge sits in a scenic position in Gangtey. The luxury property is recognised for its traditional Birdwatching Bridge, which hangs above a trickling stream and offers unparalleled 180-degree views over the beautiful glacial valley.

Staying true to the brand’s philosophy in responsible, understated luxury, both the exterior and interior design of this hotel is simple and sophisticated; clean-cut wooden-panelling and subtle pastel coloured furnishings abound, which contrast nicely with the natural green surroundings.

There are just eight suites and a two-bedroom villa to choose between, so a tranquil atmosphere can be felt within this property. This calm air continues into its spacious lobby, serene library, and spa and wellness centre - which comes complete with two treatment rooms and two steam ‘Swedana’ areas, as well as a pyramid meditation room: bliss. Outside, an impressive fire pit area provides another relaxing spot and is ideal for watching the sun go down and stargazing, with a drink in hand, at the end of an adventurous day exploring the Himalayan Kingdom.

If you are after something a little more dynamic, there is a games room on-site and you can always take a stroll throughout the lodge’s verdant grounds. Mountain biking is one of our favourite activities to partake in here, as it is arguably the best way to explore the expansive valley; but visiting the renowned black-necked cranes at the nearby visitor centre has to be the most popular excursion, as these endangered birds (known locally as ‘Thrung Thrung Karmo’) are a rare and fabulous sight to behold. Gangtey is a particularly reliable area to see these creatures as around 300 cranes visit in the winter months (from October to March) and the crane centre provides a wonderful venue. For the best viewing, we suggest rising early and visiting before the crowds start to gather, which Six Senses can happily arrange for you.

From here, you can also enjoy a picturesque drive to Gangtey Goemba (monastery) and hike along the Gangtey Nature Trail, ending your walk with a picnic lunch at a local farmhouse.

*This lodge is set to open later this year in summer 2019 and is accepting reservations from 1st October 2019*

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
