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.
The above shot is of the Himachal Pradesh Tourist Development Corporation bungalow in Kalpa. It is a nice cosy place to stay in Kalpa.

a shot that has the WOW! factor. What an amazing backdrop to this little village. Your capture gives us such a great idea of its setting and the light here is managed perfectly so that the relief of the mountains stands out so beautifully. Stunning!

Good Morning, Subho,
Those mountains in the background are majestic. The architecture of the bungalows is interesting and pleasant. The warm earth tones of the bungalows make a nice contrast to the cold colors of the mountains. An excellent contribution to TE, TFS!

Oh! it is really majestic Subho.
The houses and the roofs thereof are so matching with the background that the frame becomes a showpiece.
Excellent composition and colors.

A spectacular shot of the Himalayas with the majestic snow capped peaks making a superb backdrop. Good sharpness and density and nice warm cold color contrasts between the reddish yellow tinted wooden chalets and the deep blue sky. Tfs!

Hello Subho - What a magical location. The attractive buildings and surrounding gardens speak of springtime while the mountains that loom above are clearly still in winter mode.Lovely sunlight on the buildings add a colourful contrast. TFS and warm regards Rosemary

Wow! Great shot! I have never been in this part of India, and I'd like to visit this region some later.
Impressive background, but I like the buildings on the foreground too. Is this a hotel? Very nice style of the architecture, fine details.
Best wishes from Russia!

deve essere molto bello svegliarsi la mattina e travarsi davanti un simile spettacolo.
L'imponenza delle montagne contrasta in maniera piacevolissima con il verde che circonda la costruzione , oltretutto dipinta con colori molto brillanti e gradevoli.
Un'ottima occasione per una foto nella quale il tele ha avuto una parte importante per rendere al meglio l'imponenza delle vette.
Ciao e buona giornata
