The best possible stay in Kalpa (Kinnaur) is The Monk. The location, the tents, the scenery, the staff, their services, their food, the bonfire and last but not the least it's godfather - Rawat Ji. All of this deserves 5 star without any doubt. Kinner Kailash range is clearly visible from their tents so you get a breathtaking view whenever... More

However nothing could prepare us for the absolutely spectacular views of the Kinner Kailash the following morning. Lush apple orchards form the backyard of the hotel !! (DO NOT offend the locals by helping yourself, they will... More

The pictures of the tents deceived me into booking the Monk, on reaching we were provided rooms in a Concrete structure, I am the last person to complain about my accommodation but this is not done. Any way the view was spectacular never the less, the rooms are nice and clean, the food is good but the staff rip you... More

What an absolutely amazing trip it was! We were a school group consisting of 18 people, with ages ranging from 6 to 50, on a trip to Kinnaur and Spiti districts of Himachal Pradesh to learn about the formation and enjoy the beauty of the mighty Himalayas. Gopalji had organised our trip in painstaking detail ensuring that children and adults... More

It was a wonderful experience to stay at monk-kalpa, amazing hospitality. The Monk kalpa has the best views of kinnaur kailash. And over all I wouldn't mind going back to The Monk in kalpa. I plan to come here again for selfsame mind blowing experience. Love to stay at this place. Team 'The Monk' thanks for making my trip memorable.

We reached late at night and in the moon light had only an inkling of the majestic beauty of the mountain which lay just ahead. All of us woke up early morning... More

We reached Kalpa around 8-9 PM just to find out that all hotels were booked!! We were dead tired after almost two days of ride through one of the most amazing as well as the worst possible roads! But we got lucky and found two lovely tents in the Hotel Monk. The place is away from everything else and the... More
