On 25.10.2013, on getting a call from intercom at my room no 304, I stared at the front window,I was totally speechless as I had watched the rise of moon behind the Kinnaur Kailash.
Generally the travellers are habituated to enjoy sunrise at a hill station or on a sea shore,but this was my first experience to watch a moon rise.I was totally mesmersied by the enchanting view of Full moon rise and the glow of the Himalayas at that night as if I was within the lap of Kinnaur Kailash during that night but in reality i was lying on the soft linen bed of room no 304 of The Grand Shangrila,Kalpa.
The entrepreneur of the Hotel Mr Prithwi Raj Negi welcomed us in a enthuastic manner with a delicious fruit juice.He is a young,handsome,knowledgable person.He and his team's hospitality reminded me about "Atithi deba bhaba".
The rooms were excellent but I think the main attraction of the hotel was not only the majestic panaromic view of K.K. but the attic library of the hotel.It was my awesome feelings to spend 3 hrs within the library which not only satisfy my knowledge-hunger but wondered me about the collections.
However My destination were different but my destiny was The Grand Shangrila.My heartiest thanks to Mr Prithwi for such an amazing experience.
