With remote work becoming more normal than ever during coronavirus lockdowns, there are more so-called “digital nomads” than ever before – professionals who moved at least three times in the last year – according to MBO Partners.
So, where are these digital nomads going?
Tulum, Mexico, is a popular destination, but there’s somewhere far more remote for the most dedicated remote workers: the Himalayas. That’s where WorkationX is located, overlooking the mountains of the Kangra District at Rajgundha, India.
The only way to reach the WorkationX compound is a four-hour hike, but visitors who make the trek will be greeted by multiple homages to the closest thing the tech world has to a religious prophet: Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Musk, next to Iron Man for good measure, is featured with his hands clasped in a prayer position. In this shared working space, a smattering of bean bag chairs have been arranged for improvised seating.
In another spot in the building, over a stairway, Musk is featured as Uncle Sam:
WorkationX is a co-working space intended for guests to, “work, live and engage with the local community of the Himalayas,” according to the company’s website. “It is a workspace dedicated to the modern day visionary, Elon Musk.”
The grounds have six suites with WiFi for guests, yoga classes, and customized itineraries are offered – everything a digital nomad could ever need.
