Nako Tourism & Travel Guide

A picturesque village tucked away in the Himalayas, near the Indo-China border in district Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh. It can be reached via the bus to Reckong Peo from Delhi. Nako Lake is the main attraction of this hamlet, flanked by mountains, which are adorned by stupas. Nako is every bit Tibetan in its features, with Nako Gompa being another prominent place, home to 11th century chapels containing vibrant sculptures, murals and festival masks. One can always take the far removed hiking trail leading to the charming Tashigang village (which even has homestays now for your much desired soulful village experience), from where a continued trek can take you to caves and a shrine. Food can only be enjoyed at hotels, such as the Lake View hotel, which overlooks the Nako lake, or Knaygoh Kinner Camps, where one can enjoy accommodation and gorge on Indian and Chinese dishes within cozy en suite tents.
