Get in

There are daily buses to Kinnaur from Shimla. It is also possible to enter Kinnaur from Lahaul & Spiti, but a major landslide washed away a large chunk of road between Tabo and Rekong Peo. You can take a bus to the landslide, walk up and over a steep hill (somewhat strenuous), and then catch onward transport on the other side.

Get around

  • The major villages are connected by buses and 4wd shared taxis. 4wd's are also available for private hire.
