Views of Kinner Kailash from the room are breathtaking and you can stare at the scenery all day ( the only thing you can do apart from reading the books in the attic library). Prefer to take...

Hands down the best property in Kalpa. The view is breathtaking with the hotel being hung on the ledge and the Kinnaur Kailash range peeping in fro the window. The rooms, the service, the food - excellent ! But the most amazing part of tis property is Prithvi Ji and his staff. They go way out of their dutiful courteousness...

The library at attic was extremely innovative. We spent hours reading books and viewing kailash rock with their Binocular. The adjacent meditation room was just prepared and...

Everything was wonderful. We had great views of the Kinner Kailash range. The rooms were very snug and comfortable. The food was good but the staff behaviour was the highlight. Everybody took great care of us and it felt like we were part of a big, happy family. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Some time in mid June 2013 when this property was bearing name Grand Shragrila,I had the opportunity to visit this place.... The day we checked on the top floor rooms,we were awfully surprised to see the majestic look of kinner kailash from out side the room...It was a bit clement weather so the looks of kailash were having added beauty.......
