(The tinge of group of white on left, are houses of Nako village, and somewhere in the back in those deep valleys is the confluence point of Sutlej and Spiti river)

Given to this still lake water, there are number of trees that circle the lake. Given the same reason, the village even with an elevation of about 3600 metres has got few green fields to grow some vegetables. Else in this part of the world you would see the greenery only at the village very close to the river.
(this is how the lake looks from a close view)
Nako village to Tabo
From there onwards it runs parallel with the river throughout this journey.
You will experience a complete solitude and stillness(except Spiti water) at this place. A number of formations along the mountain ridges and on its slopes make the whole view just awesome.
(Look at that formation on right)
