The perfect place to stay in Kalpa
on Aug 12, 2019
Hotel Chini Bungalow is located a short climb up from the main market square in Kalpa. This bungalow offers up one of the best views in the surreal town of Kalpa. It is one of the oldest and well known hotels in Kalpa. All rooms are cozy and clean. Bathrooms have hot showers. The hotel is just 50 m from the main market and a short walk from the bus stand.
Perfect place to stay in Kalpa

I visited Kalpa in the summer of 2017. Chini bungalow was my first n last choice, thanx to TripAdvisor blog by someone. I stayed in the first floor room. Open the door and huge snow peaks of himalayas there in front of you, just majestic. Clean beds n washroom. Hot water available. Totaram is soo helpful that you wont need to ask anything from anyone else. Will sure love to stay here in future.
Excellent location, with a great Manager

Chini Bungalow is perched on a little height above the main market street of Kalpa village and the monastery. Its location, enjoying a magnificent view of the perennially snow capped mountains and the village below, and an apple orchard right next to it, makes Chini Bungalow really special and sets it apart from the other hotels located in the market, which feel very commercial. The room was clean and Manager Totaram Thakur very courteous, helpful, warm and always ready with useful suggestions and information about the place, how to plan our day etc. From Chini Bungalow, a little walk down the slope leads you to the little market street, the monastery and the children's playground. Walk further ahead up the inclined road from the playground for a beautiful green corner with nice cool breeze, a little temple under construction and orchards on the right side as you walk up this inclined road. While going up the slope from Chni Bungalow again leads you to the HPTDC's Kinner Kailash Hotel, and one can walk past this to a deserted green trail into the woods beside orchards and plantations. Since Chini Bungalow doesn't serve food, I highly recommend "Dinesh Bhojanalay" located in the market just opposite the PNB bank branch and run by an enterprising and lovely couple- Dinesh and Priyanka. They will serve you simple, but absolutely sumptuous homely food with a smile. Dinesh is a great cook and the taste of his omlette with dried methi leaves still lingers on my palate.

Chini Bungalow was one of the best places during our Himachal trip. Impeccably clean room with bathroom and balcony with full view of Kinnaur Kailash mountains. Nice seating area on the balcony for enjoying the view. It is a short walk above the center of Kalpa, easily accessible if you travel by bus. Very friendly manager. Decent food and laundry service are available. Very reasonable price. Much recommended!
