heniskot means a peaceful place. hidden behind a gorge the hamlet is precious. no matter what you do or do not do there we are sure that you will love it.
Village name: Heniskot
Closest Airport: Leh
Distance from airport: 130 km (approx)
Time : 3 hours
Altitude: 13000 feet asl (approximately 4000 mtrs)
2 day acclimatisation at Leh recommended!
what can you do there?
- just relax! ( and buy local wool produce!)
best way to get to know the community and have them get comfortable with you.
- write/ research/ introspect
the ideal secluded location for people wanting to spend time on their own stuff away from the mad mad world.
- teach spoken English
THIS would really help the community. the lack of teachers in the government school is the major collective grievance. something as simple as holding tuition from the comfort of your homestay will have a long-term impact on the community.
we are sure that the community and you will find that point of interaction which is helpful to both.
