Kalapa Valley is a Shambhala pilgrimage site and sacred park. In 1979 the Druk Sakyong, Trungpa Rinpoche, recognized the valley as Kalapa, Shambhala’s capital. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has proclaimed Kalapa Valley the Sacred Centre of Shambhala.
This sacred park is a forested river valley with waterfalls and meadows, adjacent to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, on Cape Breton island, Nova Scotia. Pilgrimages to Kalapa Valley are most encouraged, nourishing both visitors and the Shambhala community worldwide.
Kalapa Valley is open the general public who wish to visit during daylight hours but rental of the house is restricted to current dues paying members of the International Shambhala community
The house, camping sites, and hiking trails invite overnight, weeklong and day pilgrams to enjoy the peaceful and powerful simplicity of this woodland valley.
