Kalpa Tourism

Kalpa, the main village of Kinnaur, in the Sutlej River Valley is a place to remember and cherish. Known for its many beautiful temples and monasteries, this town is also famed for its apple orchards.

- Carry food with you while travelling around the village, since you may not find many eating joints at proper interval.
- Carry heavy woolens if travelling during winter season, weather is extremely freezing at that time.
- Be prepared for a bumpy ride, as the roads condition is quite poor.

It is better to go by car. Once the apple orchards gets over the road is narrow and dangerous and then comes the dead end.
