Unplanned journeys are always the best is what I feel, looking back at the days spent in Nako. I was on a month long solo trip to Himachal few weeks back. And I was traversing through the world's most treachourous roads of Kinnaur.
Leaving Chitkul- the last inhabited village on Indo-China border, I decided to move ahead on my way to the magnificent Spiti valley. It was my last night in Chitkul, when things turned around and me along with few new made friends decided to visit the village of Nako.
I was not aware of the village till then, but I was sure, something special was waiting.
We left Chitkul heavy heartedly , and started our journey to Nako. Few hours into the journey, and the whole landscape changed. It felt like coming to another world. The lush green landscapes were now replaced by the tallest mountains I had ever seen. Also, the roads were no longer the usual ones. Entering into Hangrang valley feels like riding the mountains.
