Discover The old Hindustan–Tibet Highway
Kinnaur Valley can be divided in two parts. First is the lower Kinnaur including areas like Sangla, Chitkul, Reckong Peo and Kalpa. Upper Kinnaur is the area around Nako village. Kinnaur district ends at Nako and the road further travels into Spiti valley. With that being said, the villages of Khab and Nako are mostly considered to be a part of Spiti trip; and people traveling to only Kinnaur usually keep their travel limited to Shimla, Narkanda, Sangla Valley and Kalpa.
During this tour we will be covering lower Kinnaur which will cover Sangla and Kalpa.
In addition to the spectacular views of the snow clad peaks, Kinnaur and Spiti Valley introduces the visitors with the diverse culture and traditions of the Spitian and Kinnauri people. Kinnaur – notably known as the land of fairy tales and fantasies, has an amazing terrain of lush green valley, orchards, vineyards, snow clad peaks and cold desert mountains. The old Hindustan–Tibet Highway, runs northeast from Shimla through the Kinnaur Valley, providing access to its rich flora and fauna. Being the border district of Himachal Pradesh, the culture and language is different from other parts of the state.
‘Spiti’ means the ‘middle country’ – a name given as a result of its ties with both India and Tibet. With freckles of green over a dry weather-beaten face, the cold deserts of Spiti is characterised by stark beauty, narrow valleys and high mountains. A century ago, Rudyard Kipling in Kim called Spiti “a world within a world” and a “place where the gods live” – a description that holds true to the present day!
