Majestic mountains, green valleys, meandering rivers, orchards and vineyards define the valley of Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh. Since it shares its border with Tibet the influence of Tibetan culture is strongly felt here. Kinnaur is also known as the ‘Land of fairytales’ and remains snow-clad for six months, quite like Spiti and Lahaul. Kinnaur is divided into three administrative areas, Pooh, Kalpa, and Nichar.

Sangla is a great destination for paragliding, angling and rafting. Kalpa is one of the most beautiful villages in the region and shouldn’t be missed. Most villages of Kinnaur lie at high altitude, some as high as 4,000 m and each village has its own presiding deity.

Kinnaur and surrounding valleys are famous for trekking and other adventure sports.
