Unexplored gem of Himachal Pradesh

Nestled among the tall mountain ranges of Himalaya, a gem not yet known to the touristy circuit of india- THE MIGHTY KINNAUR KAILASH. It is one of the hidden gems of Himachal Pradesh. Kalpa offers some of breathtaking views of the amazing Kinnaur Kailash. Mount Kinnaur Kailash is abode to the great almighty Shiv and parvati and as the legend says the Shiva linga on the Kinnaur Kailash keep changing colours multiple time in the whole day. Let me say it was my bad luck that I could not experience this beautiful phenomenon as I reached in the evening at around 5 and left early in the morning. The whole duration of my stay at Kinnaur Kailash was wrapped up in the blankets of clouds and only while leaving we had a small glimpse of the Shiv linga.

Kalpa is blessed with some amazing natural beauty and a charismatic charm that can melt even a stubborn heart. Though I am an ardent traveler, this place has cast an unbreakable spell on me which is pulling me back towards it. I am sure to go back and do a trek to kinnaur Kailash. Here I stayed with THE MONK kalpa and the owner of this place Mukeshji has offered me assistance in doing so. If you visit Kalpa you should surely meet Mukeshji, he is very nice person and can give lot of information of Kalpa being a local of this place. I heard about a beautiful place named Roghi from these people and it is just a 4 km trek from Kalpa. You can even reach this place by car but exploring it on foot has its own charm. To explore Kalpa you atleast need to spend two nights in Kalpa.



I travelled to Kalpa from sangla it is almost a 4 hours journey. Even if you come directly from Shimla or Kufri it will take around 8-9 hrs. It is long and hectic journey but the changing landscape and mesmerizing natural beauty keeps your mind occupied and you hardly feel tired. I mostly spent my time sitting in the courtyard of the hotel soaking in the beauty of nature. It is sheer experience of bliss and solitude. On the way to Kalpa just short of 2-4 km you visit the town of Reckong peo. Reckong peo has a small market where you can indulge in some shopping spree. Reckong peo is the headquarters of Kinnaur Kailash and a film Highway has some shots of this place.

To travel to this place only option is to take a road trip. As I have mentioned earlier it will take 9 hrs to reach this place. HPTC buses ply on this route, you can also book a Volvo from delhi which comes till Rampur and from there you can take another bus to kalpa. Best way to explore this place is hire a cab, it gives you the freedom to take pitstop as and when you desire and enjoy the beauty of this place in a better way. Best way to explore the beauty of kalpa is to explore the town on foot.

Perfect place to visit the Kailash Kinnaur Peak

We started our journey at 8:30 am. From Sangla valley to Kalpa on 15-10-2015 and reached at Kalpa at 12 noon. On the way to Kalpa, we stopped at Reckong Peo market for sometimes. Kalpa is famous for its Kinnauri apples.. There are so many apple orchards on both side of the road. October is the best season to visit apple orchard. Kalpa is one of the biggest & beautiful village of Kinnaur dist. It is situated at the height of 2758 m. (approx) above the sea level. Kalpa is the ideal place to visit majestic mountains of the Kinnaur Kailash range. There are spectacular views at early in the morning when the rising sun touches the glacier peaks with crimson & golden light. At early in the morning, one can also observe clearly, the Shiv Linga near Kailash Kinnaur peak. Kalpa is one of the most picturesque hill station in Himachal Pradesh, one can ever visit.
