Sun rise over Kinner Kailash

The beginning:

I visited Kalpa first time in 1997 with my family as tourist. During my service tenure in State Bank of India, I got numerous opportunities to visit many places in India for official purposes as well as rest & recuperation under LTC. But the job could not restrict me to gather the social information about the people & places wherever I went. I spent many days at beautiful places, forest lodges, beach resorts, archeological towns, hill stations, etc. But Kalpa had attracted me so greatly that I had fallen in love with the place. Even in a materialistic way of thinking, amongst all other places in India Kalpa is the best in all respect. It has all the qualities of good and peaceful living which no place can offer. The mind becomes sublime regardless of its state in the endless natural beauty and blissful environment.

It was our dream to live at this place after retirement. I resigned from the service at Mumbai. With the lots of labour and determination, the dream has finally came to reality. A small hotel was established in the newly constructed building in 2004 with all modern amenities which the guests are habituated to, at the most beautiful location 9600 ft above mean sea-level on the Great Himalayas facing the Kinner Kailash so as to make it "the second home" for all. Let the people realize the wealth of the nature and its great impact on the mind.
