Scenic beauty of kinnaur is awesome. One can see Kinnaur Kailash peak from here. One can see lot of apple tree in this place at the time of July -August. In the month of March, the entire area is covered with snow and the view of the place at that time is awesome.

Spectacular and scenic views of the mighty Himalayas. Nature captivates you to belong here and never let's you go. Close to Manali and other tourist spots of Himachal pradesh. One of the many religious places for the Hindus, especially Lord shiva worshippers.

Our package was Delhi-Shimla-Kullu-Manali-Delhi. It was really a good experience to travel with Colors of India. The tour advisor (Bhanu Godiyal (+91-8091002508)) was very kind and arranged the entire tour nicely. The hotels at Shimla and Manali were good. The service was excellent. The vehicle they arranged and most important, the driver (Mr.Anwar) was very good. The overall experience was... More

the entire Kinnaur district has its own thrills.. we drove from Delhi to Kalpa straight for 14-15 hours..crossed Simla - Rampur - Jeori - Wangtu - Peo - Kapla.. the road from Wangtu to Tapri to Karcham to Kalpa is one of the most dangerous roads in India ..its narrow, dusty and prone to landslides.. you cross a famous tunnel...

Reckong Peo is the district headquarters of Kinnaur. If you'r travelling by HRTC bus, it would take you 10 hours to reach here from Shimla. Bus Service in Himachal Pradesh is praiseworthy . If you're to drive your own vehicle , please don't be reckless on this road, as the road might get the better of you. For people who... More
