Perched on the edge of a small, beautiful lake reflecting mirror image of snow-clad mountains overlooking single- and double-floored mud houses, and willow and poplar trees painted yellow in fall colors, Nako is a small village in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh, India. Proximity to Indo-Tibetan border makes this village sensitive restricted zone. An Inner Line Permit is required to travel through. The village being one of the remotest areas in the district has its own highs and lows, like there is no ATM, low frequency of public transport, limited tourist infrastructure, etc. Despite all these anomalies, it remains a perfect getaway for explorers, families and solo backpackers, thus receives a significant number of travelers from across the world.
