Best things to do in Reckong Peo and sightseeing in Reckong Peo

Situated at an altitude of 2670 m above sea level, this is not very far from Shimla. It is the District headquarters of Kinner Kailas, which is also believed to be a mythical home of Lord Shiva. One of the main attractions here is the huge rock formation which is taken to be the Shivalinga. There are also a number of Buddhist monasteries in this region.

Kalpa - Reckong Peo

The essence of Kalpa lies in its mystical alliance of Hinduism and Buddhism. This Himachal Pradesh town is adorned with myriad temples and monasteries, which will pull you with their exquisite architecture if not faith. Some ornate archetypes of Kinnauri craftsmanship are the Narayan Nagini temple and the Hu-Bu-Lan-Kar monastery, which is a favourite among history buffs, considering that it was built around 950-1055 AD. Kalpa is home to a lot of resorts and adventure camps that offer everything from rock climbing, trekking, river crossing, rappelling, paragliding, river rafting, trout fishing, camping, angling in the Baspa River and mountain biking. For trekking enthusiasts and explorers, the Chakka peak standing at 15000 ft above the sea level is a must try. For those who wish to do some local shopping, Basteri Village is a charming little hamlet, 8 km away from Sangla, from where Kinnauri handicrafts, woollen apparel and even Chilgoza (local pine nuts) make for interesting purchases. Also, a trout fishing farm lies en-route this village. Besides what your guesthouses might be serving you, Kalpa doesn't particularly possess an array of any special restaurants except dhabas (roadside food shacks) where you can have your quota of knick-knacks and drinks. Some places although, that are well known among travellers are Chef's Restaurant and Hotel Golden Apple for Indian and Tibetan dishes.
This wonderful place lying in the Satluj Valley of Himachal Pradesh in Kinnaur is a place known for its natural beauty and cultural bounty.

Things to do in Kalpa and places to visit in Kalpa: Kalpa gives an out-of-the-world view of Kinner Kailash peaks, which are reputed to change colours at different hours of the day. So give it enough time. Explore the old village of Chini. There’s a monastery there, which is reputed to be a century old. About 3km from Kalpa is Kothi, which has a temple dedicated to Goddess Chandika. Few venture there, but it’s certainly worth a visit if you have the time. If you have more time, the Kinner Kailash parikrama trek is said to be one of its kind
