Usually the place we stay during our road trips are decently located. But we have never had a better experience with the location of the Hotel. If you take the room on 4th floor, you don't even need to get up from your bed to experience the mammoth essence of Kinner Kailash. You can see it lying on your bed....

This is the only best available option to stay in Kalpa as there is not much options available. The hotel location is good. Views of Kinner Kailash from the room are breathtaking and you can stare at the scenery all day ( the only thing you can do apart from reading the books in the attic library). Prefer to take...

Hands down the best property in Kalpa. The view is breathtaking with the hotel being hung on the ledge and the Kinnaur Kailash range peeping in fro the window. The rooms, the service, the food - excellent ! But the most amazing part of tis property is Prithvi Ji and his staff. They go way out of their dutiful courteousness...
