My friends and I had a trip to Kinnaur Valley during mid-April. We started from Shimla to Sangla, Chitkul - Kalpa. Our original plan was for sightseeing and 3 days trek at Jalori pass. Everything was well organized by Himalayan Caravan Adventure, the driver, hotels/camps and food were excellent beyond our expectations. The first three days at Sangla (stayed 2... More

If someone asks me that where I would like to free when I am over-bored with the daily mundane life, my answer will always be Kinnaur. Kinnaur comprises of Sarhan, Sangla and kalpa (kalpa being my favourite) . Each of the spots are known for its exotic picturesque, soothing atmosphere, nuisance free air and some mouth watering cuisines. It was... More

Though the drive to Kinnaur is not a very comfortable one. But once you reach there you transformed into another world. Apple orchards, flowing river, fresh clean air and above all simple and hospitable people. Stay at the Banjara camps Sangla

We never knew about Himachal Pradesh places to visit. so we took the the help of JMK travel Link, Kolkata. They arranged for our shortcomings.The trip to narkhanda, kalpa, sangla, chitkul and chail was very satisfying.

Kinnaur apples are most famous anywhere in India. you will see that the season varies as you go higher. In early May the apple trees in Kalpa are all flowering. they look beautiful. As you go further up you will notice that some them are yet to even have their leaves come back after the winter! Kinnaur is beautiful and... More

Located in the dizzying heights of the Himalayas, with passes that remain closed for six months linking them with the rest of the world, Kinnaur till recent past was a forbidden land. Only a chosen few were granted permission to visit this secret world, officials, Moravian missionaries who settled here in 1853 and a few mountaineers. Now this area has... More

“A very bad planning, I must say” said one of the well-known tour operators in Shimla whom we met in the evening prior to our departure for Kalpa. He wasn’t too wrong either. In the last 8 days we did quite an extensive traverse through Himachal – Pathankot-Dharamshala-McLeogunj-Manali-Shimla. Our circuit was yet to complete . And now, one more long... More
