Started our journey early from Sangla and reached Rekong Peo at around 9:30 in the morning. Rekong Peo is popularly known as Peo by local people,we had our breakfast at Peo, bought some daily stuffs as Peo is the headquarter of Kinnaur district, it got all facilities like market, bus stand, hospital etc. Kalpa is another 8kms uphill drive from Rekong Peo.
We started our way towards Kalpa, the landscape soon changes into much beautiful and green. Forest of Pine and Deodar will welcome travelers on their way to Kalpa. Mountain ranges of Kinnaur Kailash gets visible from the roads itself.
We reached Kalpa at around 11 am in the morning, suddenly the forest ceases, and you enter a landscape full of apple orchards and some hotels here and there and huge mountain ranges half circling the whole town. We checked into a very decent hotel, just adjacent to the HPTDC's hotel complex. The view from the hotel was mesmerizing.
