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. More
