Kalpa is one of the biggest and beautiful village of the Sutlej valley in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. It is famous for production of high quality Golden Apples. It is located 260 kms. away from the state capital of Shimla. It is a famous tourist destination, offering magnificent views of the Kinnaur Kailash range. Kalpa is surrounded by deodar, apple and chilgoza trees. In winter the whole village is covered in 5-7 feet of snow and temperatures often drop as low as -20 degree centigrade.
