A place of meditation

Into such an oasis of calm, serenity, and spirituality, Zimshag welcomes you. A lively 5-minute walk takes you into the natural wonder of Chulli Bagh where the apricot trees leave you spellbound whatever the season. 

Zimshag is a place of meditation, introspection and such was built cozy and insulated from external elements. A two-minute stroll from the magnificent Stok Palace takes you to a charming cottage amidst shrines and stupas. For sixty years Zimshag has seen members of the royal family take to meditation here with the aunts of HH Jigmed Namgyal embracing the spiritual path to enlightenment. His uncle lived out his end of days here, deep in meditation while serving the Hemis Monastery.

Jim's Jungle Retreat

One with the land

Built using traditional techniques, harnessing the strengths of locally available materials, the architecture of Zimshag is not just sustainable, it is deeply spiritual and calming. A meditation home, Zimshag was designed for silence and warmth, offering the perfect respite whether in peak of summer or the harshest Ladakhi winter. Made contemporary with modern amenities in the bath and powder rooms, the authentic charm is retained unblemished.
