Nako in Kinnaur Valley is a picturesque hamlet. Nako is slated to be declared a ‘Heritage Village’ gates in the village streets built from stone, wood, and painted on the inside with colorful Buddhist religious paintings. There are some nice day walks around the mountains. In 3 to 4 hours you can reach the village of Tashi Gianchho perched high above the Sutlej valley. The only things you encounter underway are sheepherders and great views.
Located just in front of famous Nako Lake and 300 m from Nako Monastery, this homestay is a beautiful setup amidst this more breath-taking village.
Nako Homestay has 5 rooms all facing the lake and the beautiful Reo Purgyal mountain peak. The terrace opens straight to the Lake. Watching sunset standing on the balcony with a hot cup of tea is always a memorable moment here.
Homemade Veg Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner are available at the homestay.
The sheer view of a barren landscape of Hangrang Valley and the Spiti River cutting through the rocks deserves a visit. Apart from that, there is a high altitude lake around which the village has grown. Watch out for Tibetan Buddhist culture and symbols all over the village. There is a new monastery that mostly remains locked unless you are on time (6 AM and 3 PM) for rituals. There are some ruins of the historical monastery and old temples etc. In Nako, you can take part in a village walk, where you understand the history of this village, walk by the Lake. Hike to the viewpoint to gain a bird’s eye perspective of the valley down. You can also take a jeep trip to another valley in Hangrang like Leo, Change, etc.
