Ancient Shangri-La and new oriental Zen meet at Karesansui


Interweaved and unique, the Tibetan style of ancient Shangri-La melds seamlessly with the beauty of new oriental Zen in the six small buildings and old Tibetan house that Karesansui consists of.

With its copious use of wood and other natural materials, the hostel is a place where guests can seek psychological satisfaction, enlightened by the stream as well as tranquil, quiet surrounding environ.
