So we were supposed to stay here for a day on our journey to Spiti but then fortunately or unfortunately it snowed on same night and we had to extend our stay from a night to two nights. When I say fortunately then there is a reason behind that. 1st one is that having witnessed 1st snowfall of the season in Kalpa was simply a blessing disguise and the 2nd reason was the hotel it self. Owner and the staff took care of ours in such a way which I can’t even explain in words. Room in which we were staying had mesmerising view of mount Kailash and the food which they served was basic but definitely delicious. We couldn’t have asked for more. Hence I would say, if you are in kalpa and like your bed to be comfy, food to be yum and services to be top notch, do stay at Shamba-la.

Recently stayed at The Grand Shamba-ka, Kalpa. Initially 1st impression once you enter is bit un-nerving. But once you settle, it’s comfortable & the views from the rooms are breathtaking (snow clad mountains right from your front room balcony). Hospitality was too good & Mr.Dev in charge & the staff looked after the guests needs & likes personally. We were served fantastic choice of hot breakfast & dinner that we would prefer. Met the owners who are very modest & humble. The stair climbing is bit hard but worth it once you see the views from the rooms. Top 5th floor has library with fantastic collection. The bar Yeti had a wide screen to watch movies, sports etc. Would definitely recommend this property in Kalpa. Look forward to re-visiting soon.

The best host and the greatest hospitality you can ever hope for. The front rooms have the best views of Kinner Kailash in all of Kalpa. Their library is fantastic, as are the meditation room and the entertainment room with a large projector and a great collection of movies and documentaries. We went for our 30th anniversary for six days and the entire trip was phenomenal. We will cherish these memories all our life. The staff had arranged for a well thought of private, candle light dinner for the two of us.

Easily the best place in Kalpa to spend a week or a weekend. This is my second visit to the place in 3 years, and I have yet to find a more hospitable and positive staff. Owner Prithvi has now become a friend, and has done up the place beautifully. Army issue blankets kept us warm in -18 deg nights, and the warmth from staff like Shubham (amongst others) kept us ever warmer. The food is lovely, and it has fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. And all of this from the comfort of your bed. The place itself is beautifully done up, with balconies offering spectacular evening chai spots. The library on the top floor is stacked with a great variety of books, and also offers a 360 view of the surrounding area. I’m not going to bother looking for another place to stay in Kalpa. The Grand Shamba-La is where I’m headed.
