Kalpa Info

  • State: Himachal Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Hill
Kalpa situated in the Kinner-Kailash range, lies in the Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh. It is situated at an elevation of around 2,758 metres above sea level. The ancient headquarters of Kinnaur region, Kalpa was replaced by the modern town of Rekong Peo. The River Sutlej makes its way through the Great Himalayas along with rock face highways from Kinnaur.

Located in Kinnaur District, the history of the region is influenced by myths and legends. It is believed that the place was under the reign of Magadha followed by the Mauryan Empire during the 6th century. The Guge Kingdom of Tibet also ruled Kinnaur between the 9th and 12th centuries. The history of the district lasted until Emperor Akbar conquered the area and included the valley into the Mughal Empire.

Kinner-Kailash, the sacred mountain, is visited by natives for pilgrimage and is also one of the main attractions of the destination. There is a 70 metre high Shivalinga atop the peak that is visited by devotees and travellers. Sangla Valley on Bapsa River banks, at an altitude of 8,900 feet above sea level, is another attraction of the destination.

Some of the architectural marvels in and around the valley are Kamru Fort, Naga Temple and Sapni. The hamlet and village of Chini provides a glimpse of rich heritage, custom and culture. Most of the folklore is engaged in weaving shawls and Kinnauri caps. A fusion of Hinduism and Buddhism which is reflected in the culture and history of Kalpa is one of the chief attractions.

Kalpa can be reached through flights, trains and buses. The nearest airport serving the destination is the Shimla Airport, which is situated at a distance of 787 km. This airport serves only domestic airlines. Shimla railway station is the nearest railhead which is connected with various cities of the country. Besides flights and trains, Kalpa can be reached through buses available from Shimla and Kullu.

Situated amidst the Great Himalayas, Kalpa has a pleasant climate in summer with extremely cold winters. The months from April to September are ideal to make a visit to Kalpa.
