A spectacular & mysterious mountainous area, flanked by the great Himalayas. Ranging in altitude from 2320-6816 metres (7610-22362 feet). Kinnaur is the land of fairy tales and fantasies, has a spectacular terrain of lush green valley and orchards.
The view from Kalpa is beautiful with an observer getting the feeling that he is sitting in the lap of the mountains with the entire range of peaks.
Kalpa is a town with a history of ancient temples. The Sutlej River below hurtles through deep gorges, the winding mountain road is bordered by chilgoza forests. The serenity of this sleepy hamlet was not often visited by foreigners until recently, but there are still relatively few visitors. Also visible from this place is the sacred Shivling rock on the Kailash mountain that changes its color at different points in the day.
