I was just amazed by my experience in The Grand Shamba La. I went there lunch, but at first I hesitated; I sae the place from the outside and thought I couldn't afford having lunch there. I looked at the menu, and the prices were totally Affordable. The service we've gotten even before the first orders came, was remarkable. The staff took care of us as we were the only guests in the facility. After appx. 25 minutes, the food came. And thank god it did, because it was just delicious. Everything we ordered (Indian food) was splendid! After the meal we went to see the bar, the meditation room and the library. They were all designed by mr. Raj, the proud owner of this kingdom. The spaces were unbelievably beautiful, and they all had high-quality sound systems. I would say you MUST

Most the travellers doing Shimla-Kinnaur-Spiti-Manali circuit, need to take night break at Kalpa either coming from Chitkul or from Shimla/Narkanda. Kalpa is situated at 2970 mtr & offers good views of Kinner-Kailash mountain ranges. We stayed at this property twice - once while travelling to Tabo from Chitkul & once when our trip to Chandratal was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions & we had to retract our route back to Shimla. Grand Shamba-La is a very good hotel for a day layover or even for longer duration of stay because of its good location - almost at the top of the town. Only flip side is that if you are weak on knees, you’ll have to miss out climbing on to 3rd or 4th floor (with rather awkwardly high stair-steps) offering best view of Reckong-Peo town below

Breath taking view from the every corner of the room.... the hotel is situated facing the Kinnar Kailash.... though the approach road is a challenge, but the hotel staff provide all the help to make a smooth check-in. Mr. Yashpal ji , Manager, was very cooperative and provided excellent services. His team was very prompt & always smiling.

One of the best hotel in entire kalpa very neat and clean room as well as washroom but washroom is bit small in size. Booked the suite room in which there have two room, one master bed room and one small room for kids. Food was very delicious .Mostly it is occupied with foreigners .The only issue we faced was the car parking very narrow passage to drive to the parking lot and only 4-5 cars can ve parked.Rest everything was too good.

Lovely little hotel in a beautiful location facing the Kinnaur Kailash with direct views of the snow capped mountains. Has a pretty quaint library on the top floor. Lovely addition to the place. Rooms are clean and the balconies are the icing on the cake. Staff is extremely helpful, efficient, enthusiastic and always smiling and alert. Five star service. Food is decent. Highly recommend a stay here for two nights to really enjoy the hotel and its surroundings.

Location: The property is located a few meters from the main road overlooking the mighty Himalayan peaks, particularly Kinnaur (or Kinner) Kailash. The Kinnaur Kailasha is a mountain in the Kinnaur district of the Indian state Himachal Pradesh. The Kinnaur Kailash has a height of 6050 meters and is considered sacred by both Hindu and Buddhist. The Kinner Kailash Shivlingam trek will take to the heart of one of the most mythical abodes of Lord Shiva, which is a 79 foot vertical rock in the Kinner Kailash mountain range. On a clear day, one can see the Shivlingam which changes color during the course of the day. According to Hindu Mythology this is a very sacred place in the Indian Himalayas as it is associated with lord Shiva and Mata Parvati. A natural pond/Kund near Kinner

A fantastic place to stay. Got the top floor room. Out of breath in the climb and breath taken away by the view.. top floor has insulated rooms.. a boon in chilly times. The hospitality of the staff (Yuvraj and Shubham stand out) and Mr Prithvi (Owner) is beyond compare. Only wish the access road would have been better.. will definitely stay there next time too..

Wow, what an amazing place it is. Look at the library, prayer room, out of the world. Perhaps having the most amazing view in Kalpa. Well, there might be many places with such amazing view. But we fall in love with the touch of love from Pruthvi, Yash and entire The Grand Shambala family. They really touched our heart with great hospitality. Kalpa and The Grand Shambala deserve minimum couple of night before proceeding towards spiti.

Hotel Sambhala is one of the best hotels of Kalpa. Actually the hotel has lovely amenities, delicious food, caring staff and very scenic surrounding. It has lovely library at the topmost floor of hotel with lovely views of Kinner Kailash and other peaks. It has lovely meditation hall and very spiritual environment. In fact owner of hospital is a very caring and spiritual person. He puts all his effort to take care of the guests.It has amphitheatre and bar too to add on for complete relaxation and enjoyment. Most satisfying thing is the caring attitude of all it's staff. I convey my best wishes for hotel and it's staff.
