The Monk was amazing, the views were mesmerizing and the stay was clean and comfortable, the staff was very helpful and knew everything about the nearby places of interest. The food was prepared and cooked fresh after ordering and was delicious, overall I would recommend it to every backpacker or to a group of friends visiting kalpa.

The camp site is clean and hygienic and has all the amenities. This place has a rustic feel to it, with rooms made entirely of mud. They...

The service of the staff is so good that it's impeccable. I stayed about 4 days here in October and cried on my way out, the staffs at the hotel for house keeping, butler, the service staff at the breakfast buffet area made us feel at home all the time.

We stayed at The Monk in Kalpa around the end of October 2016. In one word, the stay is described as A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Mr Rawat - you are an exceptional host and are always taking the extra step to keep the guests comfortable. Your specialty is not just the amazing "Apple Curry" or the "Apple Paratha" or the "Apple Kheer" delicacies,...

Our stay at 'The Monk' in Kalpa was splendid. The staff was very hospitable. The location of the property was surreal. Thanks to Mr. Rawat and his team, we enjoyed our stay thouroughly. The only negative was the food, which could have been a bit better. Overall,we really loved our trip to Kalpa.
