Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh

Been there recently?

One of the most scenic districts in the country, Kinnaur is a visual treat with its deep valleys, beautiful rivers, lovely forests and fruit orchards. The district shares its border with Tibet and the view of the Himalayan peaks would impress anyone. Apart from being a nature lover if you are a religious and cultural traveller then Kinnaur is where you should be. Steeped in tradition and religion, the district has attractive wooden temples and many Gompas. A mix of Hindu and Buddhist populations presents a great cultural mix that you would love to witness. If you love adventure, then unravel the many facets of the picturesque district by negotiating the dangerous roads to the remote villages. Not too long ago, visitors stayed away from Kinnaur in fear of its dangerous roads. But once the natural beauty of the district became known, the same visitors are braving the dangerous roads. That is the power of the beauty of Kinnaur. April to October is the ideal time to visit Kinnaur. Reckong Peo is the headquarters of Kinnaur district and it is about 215 kilometres from Shimla. Kalka, the nearest rail station is nearly 295 kilometres away and Shimla is the nearest air link.
