kalpa in kinnaur is a very peaceful and beautiful place. the road is broken at many places between rampur and kalpa but kappa is worth it. from the peaks of kapla, the shivling is visible but you need to have a powerful zoom camera. amazing place surrounded by apple orchards.

Kinnaur and Spiti Valley is in Himachal Pradesh and this route is very famous for Adventure Bike trips. We did this in July and a more suitable time would be August End for the same. Surely a must visit pace for bikers.
