Kalpa Overview

If mountains are your true calling, Kalpa is the best place to visit in Himachal Pradesh. Nestled deep in the Kinnaur Kailash mountains, Kalpa feels like it’s made for an artist’s delight. A nature lover’s paradise, Kalpa offers serenity and calmness to its visitors. Flexing its grand Kinnaur Kailash, Jorkanden and Raldang peak sighting, and extensive and exquisite apple orchard, Kalpa is a perfect offbeat destination in Himachal Pradesh for the ones who seek peace and nature. 

 

Hidden deep in the Kinnaur district, reaching Kalpa is a long journey and one which would be worth the moment you step foot in this Himalayan village. Welcoming you with its Hindu temples and Buddhist monastery, Kalpa takes over your mind and soul with its grandeur. As if being hidden deep in the Himalayas wasn’t enough, you would be treated to the arresting sight of Mount Kailash, Mt. Raldang, and Jorkanden. If luck is on your side, you might also witness the holy Shivling, which is situated atop the sacred and divine mountain. 

 

Kalpa is not your typical tourist destination in Himachal. Offering a proper offbeat and raw experience, the ones who come to Kalpa come seeking peace and tranquillity. The major tourist attractions in Kalpa are Narayan Nagini Temple and Hu-Bu-Lan-Kar Monastery. 

 

While mountains are famous for their serene and quaint environment, this getaway destination is much more than your typical weekend destination. If you seek inner peace and want to explore what Himalayan village really stands for, Kalpa would offer everything you seek. Reaching Kalpa is a journey, a journey that would be worth hundreds of tales and thousands of Instagram posts.
