People of Kinnaur believe they are the true descendants of the pandava’s.

Kinnaur treasures many secrets beneath & is a host to many hindu temples built a couple of centuries back.

Lahaul & Spiti -

Till 1960 Lahaul & Spiti used to be 2 separate districts, Both were combined with Keylong as its Head quarters. While Rohtang Pass connects this region on one side, Kunzum Pass connect’s the Spiti on the other. Without these 2 passes the region gets completely isolated & loses contact with the external world. Especially in the winter months both these regions operate on traditional foot routes & all motorable roads are close even till date.

While Lahaul offers considerable terrains, Spiti offers completely barren & steep terrains. Spiti at an altitude of 14000ft & above is considered to be high altitude locations. The magnanimity & construct of these regions are better experienced than said in words.
