BENGALURU: Searching for a paradise to spend the whole vacation then visit Kinnaur, located at the Himalayan ranges of Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of around 6000 feet. This small district is surrounded by snow-clad mountains where the melted ice from the mountain peaks melts down the streams, flourishing villages with greenery and making this place a heaven.

If you are travelling from Shimla then Kinnaur is located at 150 miles from the state capital. Many tourists visit this place and for a nature lover this would be a world of wanderlust. When you visit this place you could see unity in religions as deities of both Hindu’s and Buddhist’s are worshipped next to each other with harmony.  The Hindustan-Tibet highway passes through the Kinnaur valley along the bank of river Sutlej.   

This place has long winters from October to May so the temperature here is usually below 10 Degree Celsius making it favorable for the cultivation of Chestnut, Apricot and Apple. There are many other blissful places one of which is the Sangla Kanda where you can have a view of Kinner Kailash which is considered to be the abode of lord Shiva. Also you can see the beauty of Baspa River which has crystal clear water flowing down through the snow covered mountains.   

If adventure is your thing and trekking excites you, then Kinnaur is your go-to destination. It boasts many trekking routes like Bhabha Pin valley, Kinnaur Kailash Parikarma and others.
