You will find the best of deals on the hotels and homestays of the region, the pictures will be free of other tourists, and the crowd will be of similar minds, making the experience all the more worth it.

Rains are the perfect spice to add to your vacation, but when it comes to mountains, always remind yourself to take it with a pinch of salt. It is not like that the city of Kalpa and the valley of Kinnaur gets closed during the months of Monsoons, or inaccessible. But the conditions of the roads are not the best at this time. And since the roads are the only way in, it gets a little tricky to get in.

But you can rest assured that when you do gain entry in the valley, the misty environment, the green meadows, and the clouds hugging the snow-capped peaks will make all the efforts and risks worth it. Much like the winter time, the months between July to September are the times when you will feel the area to be the least crowded. The scenery and the quiet of the area only broken by the spattering rain on the windows and roofs make the experience a musical one. One can easily forget about the fast-paced life in the cities when they get a look at the quaint settings.

Although the roads are not closed, you may face a little difficulty in reaching Sangla and Reckong Peo, but the views and the amazingness of the area of Kalpa itself are going to prove to be an amazing getaway into the hills.


Talking about temperature, the average during this season will be around 18 degrees, with the mercury going as high as 25 degrees in the afternoons of June, and lows hitting 13 degrees in the month of September.

Kinnaur Kailash Parikrama Trek is a religious yet very adventurous one. If you are someone who would enjoy really long treks which involves rock climbing, boulder hopping, etc, then you would definitely enjoy this trek. I absolutely loved how the whole trek was made into a beautiful experience. I am glad to have taken this package.

It is hard to believe that such a place can exist in India! It is bordered by Spiti Valleya nd Kullu and each of them is more beautiful than the last. The trek is not very challenging and can be attempted by amateurs too! helpful and experienced trekking guides made my trekking experience really smooth and enjoyable....

We took this trip as a gang of four together and we were glad that we were well welcomed by the pro trekkers. However, I don’t think the trek route is good enough for ladies or first time trekkers. The food, service, and planning were all value for the money.

The trek was interesting while we went uphill. As we started coming down, it was a little risky and steep. The trek arrangement was good and the food was fine especially for the fact that it was provided on such a long trek.

Kinnaur Kailash Parikrama Trek – When we zeroed in on this place for the trek, we had no idea on who to contact and how to proceed forward with this. After speaking to the organizer, we were so sure that our trek would be planned well. As per our expectations, the trek did turn out to be fruitful. It was friendly on our budget as well as it saved a lot of time as most of the things for the trek was taken care of very well by the organizers.

Kinnaur Kailash Parikrma Trek is one of the best treks I had known about. Trekking Himalayas is no longer a distant dream. There are many moderate level challenging treks that are available in trek packs to trekking enthusiasts. We, some of the Chennai Trekkers, took this trek and it was amazing. The trek was definitely tedious and exhausting, but we did make it to the top and back. It was a spellbinding experience. The flights were costly, but the trek as such is not that costly. It was a nice trek.

Trekking Himalayas?! Who would say no? I would definitely not say no to this. I really really loved this trek. It was the best trek that I have ever taken and what’s more it was hands down the best trek in India. It is totally worth every penny spent.
