We stayed in a tent at The Monk and we were not disappointed. The owner and staff are friendly and very helpful. The view of Kinner Kailash range and the Shivling from the tents is spectacular. This place deserves all the accolades it's been getting and I hope they keep it going. Food is simple, but very nice. Thank you... More

We started from Sangla early morning to reach Kalpa around mid-day. Rawat ji is the chef/ manager at the hotel and he helped us get settled down. We had a smallish hike lined up and from the choices, he suggested Roghi Village to Lord Dahousie's cottage. The guide was a young man, whose name I cannot remember right now, but... More

It is a clean comfortable hotel and would be categorized as value for money. The rooms are spacious and airy with few power outages. We got warm water and the food was also good. The kitchen is located a bit in the far away wing so that is a bit inconvenient especially at night and there are no intercoms so... More
