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.

We traveled to Kalpa after 4 days in Taj Theog, Simla, and since this is a tiny village we hadn't expected much, but oh we were in for such a surprise! The views of Jorkanden and Ralden from each room are to die for, and you can even spot the Kinnaur Kailash trident using the binoculars present in the upper deck/ library in the hotel. The sit-out here on the library deck was perfect for watching the sun rise (I even shot a time-lapse video). The hotel is owned by Mr Prithviraj Negi, who was traveling, but we were well taken care of by Mr Yashpal (the manager), Mr Devender and Mr Shubham, who were all courteous, ever-smiling and very friendly. They accommodated our request for food items which weren't even on the menu, and we relished the tastiest bowls of Thukpa here. The

Where do I begin writing about this exceptional hotel perched in the midst of the himalayas, with uninterrupted views of the kinner kailash range! The hotel is a great hub if you wish to visit chitkul, sangla or nearby hill stations. Rooms - spacious enough for 2-3 people. Every room has a 3 kW heater that should heat the room until -10C. The rooms have dish tv connection, continuous hot water supply, hot water kettle etc. Food - when we visited in the month of december, winter was on and all we tried was thukpa. The food prepared and served by Devender was very tasty and fresh. Since the hotel operates on a MAP plan, you wont need to pay extra for an additional order. Location - poets/writers can just sit in the rooms balcony and write their magnum opus. The amazing views of

Love the grand shamba la and village of kalpa. . Quick, get there while it is still unspoiled by tourism! There has been a building boom of new hotels since we were there in 2016. Hotel is immaculate, staffed with wonderful people and serves excellent food. Gracious owner , Prithvi, helped us arrange excellent safe driver to take us through amazing spiti valley to leh, He was open to switching us when we didn’t like s couple of the hotels he had booked. Unfortunately hard to match standard of grand shamba la .. it is so top notch.

Location – The hotel is located on the road to Roghi village. Though the hotel can be seen from the road, access is through a narrow road which leads to the small parking area of the hotel. From Rekong Peo its about 30 minutes drive. The Hotel – The hotel structure consists ground + 6 floors which the top floor being the library. The library is well stocked. Each floor has 4 rooms with 2 facing the majestic and scenic Kinner Kailash Ranges. The ground floor houses the reception area and the dining area where all meals are served. Behind this there is a dining area for buffet meals with a small open courtyard. The bar i.e. Yeti Sports Bar and the meditation room i.e. Yeti Retreat can be accessed from this area. The meditation room is a must visit and one can enjoy the solitude

We had an unexpected two night stay in the hotel due to a roadblock ahead of Kalpa. We could not have ended up in a better place. The rooms are beautiful, offering a great view of the snowy peaks. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The attached bar too has some great views and stylish seating, offering local and punjabi dishes. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely come again.

The hotel has lovely views of the snow capped mountains. The approach to the hotel is very narrow but it is compensated by the lovely service of the staff. Special thanks to Mr Yashpal & his team for the lovely hospitality. The special Jain food prepared for us was of very good quality. The only draw back is the stairs that you need to climb to get to your rooms as there is no lift.
