Places to visit at Nako

Your trip to the Nako village will probably remain incomplete if you don’t visit the nearby Chitkul village situated on River Baspa’s banks. Also, a visit to the Chango Gompa is a must. The gompa houses a unique prayer wheel made out of yak skin. The wheel is nearly 500 years of age.

In vicinity to the Nako village is the sanctuary of Lipa Asrang. The sanctuary is known for its exotic flora consisting of alpine shrubs, conifers, etc. A tour to Sarhan from Nako is really worth it. The location of Sarhan is known for its many temples. One famed temple is Bhimkali.

The key attraction of the Nako village is one namesake lake around which there are several caves and Tibetan temples. According to popular beliefs, Sage Padmasambhava had performed penance on the banks of the lake during his lifetime. A waterfall situated in the vicinity of the lake is locally thought to be an abode of the fairies. However, since no trail could be found leading up to the waterfall, it could turn out to be pretty challenging to trace it. A visitor to the Nako village can explore the village on foot or by borrowing a bike from the locals.
