Staying at monk kalpa was a wonderful experience. Tough part was road from Bhavnagar to Reckong peo, really bad road (preferably travel by SUV). But you will forget it while sipping your first cup of tea sitting outside your tent in monk kalpa (probably best place to stay in kalpa). Try finishing your journey from Rampur to kalpa in day...

The journey to Kalpa was very tiring for us, but all of it was forgotten once we reached The Monk. The view of the majestic Kinnaur Kailash range took our breath away(literally) and it was just the starting. I was a bit skeptical about staying in tents initially because I am not a winter person and the winds that were... More

I decided not to stay at The Monk Cottages at the time when their employee was helping me with my luggage to resorts. I spoke to at least 2 of their office bearers just before reaching the resort, none of them told me that there is no electricity in the resort, no generator, no emergency light, no hot water, as...

Getting there: this is the tough part. The road to Reckong Peo is provisional at best. The bad patch of the road begins a little after Rampur and Bhawanagar, and its best to do the travel during day time. SUV travel recommended. We missed many a heart beat travelling in our sedan. The hard part over, once you reach the... More

This was awonderful place to stay in...and we chose it just by the ratings and reviews of Tripadvisor! It turned out to be a great decision. The resort is very well located amongst apple and other trees, having wonderful views of the snow clad peaks, which is the first sight that greets you when you wake up. The tents are... More

The Swiss tent experience was new to me and definitely was fun!! The view was overwhelming. The staff was very cordial and helpful. I loved the way everything was setup. The meals offered were concise. The concept of bonfire was amazing. A little improvement in dining area is required. Overall the experience was startling.

What a place to visit. Both the Kalpa and the resort where we stayed, the Monk, were out out of this world. You can see the entire kinner kailash range from the resort itself. We stayed in the swiss cottage and the view from our room is mesmerising. You can sit in the garden and spent the whole day. And... More
