Kinnaur – Affluence of Nature

The name of Kinnaur is synonymous to many highly acclaimed things.

Kinnaur lies at a distance of approximately 235 km from Shimla and has Tibet to its east and Himachal Pradesh in its North East. Its geographical location; along with being surrounded by three high mountain ranges namely Zanskar, Himalayas and Dhauladhar; which further enclose valleys of Spiti, Sutlej and Bapsa with their tributaries lend magical opulence to this place. For the religious enthusiasts there is a huge Shivlinga that is located on the pinnacle of Kinner Kailash Mountain. Here, there are followers of both Buddhism and Hinduisms. The Hindus believe that Kinnaur is the place where Pandavas were settled when they were in exile. While the Buddhist herkinnaure are strong believers of the Buddhist cult; that is based on principles of honest and simple living. Further the religious affinity of the place goes further; as in ancient mythology people living in Kinnaur were called Kinners which means half way between men and Gods.
