LUCKY VALLEY is nestled in 500 acres of fruit orchards, vegetable
plots and herb gardens, cultivated on what was previously virgin
jungle, which still lines the perimeter of the land. The retreat was
founded by Directors who discovered that the energy in
the area was unusually strong, and could be harnessed for health
and healing. So the land was acquired and the jungle was turned
into a rich plantation of common and exotic fruits, medicinal herbs,
and organic vegetables.
The retreat is frequented by many foreigner and local groups who
come on organized “energy-enriching” retreats. Many are Yoga,
TaiChi, Qigong or spiritual groups. The retreat is not a religious
centre but is suitable for any meditative or spiritual group.
The land is strewn with paths that join the different structures and
areas, and in the perimeter is the 7 kilometer hiking trail that is the
highlight of any visit to the retreat. The hike starts in the early
morning after a light breakfast.
There are ponds and lakes that are covered by many species of
water-lilies and lotuses. The fishes for our meals are home-reared,
and are caught fresh just before being cooked. Recreational fishing
is not encouraged though it would be a haven for such enthusiasts.
The lakeside bungalow allows activities like meditation, discussions
and exercises to be done right by the waterside.
