Reckong Peo

Reckong Peo is the capital of the Kinnaur district in India.

Get in[edit]

Most people come by bus via Rampur, although also accessible via Kaza. The bus journey from Rampur to Reckong Peo has to be one of the most dramatic in the world, definitely not for the faint hearted. As of summer 2015, the cost from Rampur to Reckong Peo was 178INR.

In summer the night buses from Shimla are hopelessly overcrowded; so, very early morning buses are more spacious. Direct buses are not necessary; in fact, in summer it's better to take anything to Rampur, and go from there. The few semi-deluxe buses start in Chandigarh, and are generally full in summer before they reach Shimla.

If traveling to the Spiti Valley, you will need an Inner Line Permit, which is available in Reckong Peo (through an agent for Rs.400) or Shimla (Rs.300), and is good for 14 days. It used to be prohibited to stay overnight anywhere within the restricted zone, but this is no longer the case, provided you have a valid permit. Also note that this Inner Line Permit is required only for Foreign Nationals.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Centrally located Little Chef ( restaurant is the one recommended Western style eatery in Reckong Peo. Apparently Snow View also has a restaurant. Don't be fooled by the signage, Ridang does not have a restaurant or bar as of summer 2015.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Due to the mild climate, apple orchards are a common sight throughout the Kinnaur region, perhaps due to the historical British influence. In Reckong Peo, local, handmade apple cider is the thing to do.
