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

First wow is for Kalpa. I would rate it higher than Sangla Valley Second Wow is for the property. Amazing Swiss tents (better than rooms) with a view of Shivling on Kinner Kailash Third wow is for the staff. Two staff members who are eager to deliver sumptuous food and a comfortable experience
