Kinnaur Valley


  Kinnaur Valley  

✔ There are a lot of beautiful villages in Himachal but still, a lot of people are unaware of this part of Himachal because it is neither near Shimla nor near Manali.

✔ Almost 200 Km away from Shimla, this place is Himachal’s Kinnaur Valley where there are some very beautiful and heavenly villages and the way to heaven will not be easy.

✔ Kinnaur Valley starts from one of the most dangerous roads in the world, the Hindustan-Tibet highway.


✔ Most of the mountains are not made of soil but of huge rocks, so half tunneling was done to make these roads.

✔ When you are on this road, you have this cliff on your head and a thousand feet of valley on the side.
