Nako is a village in the Himalayas of northern India, located near the Indo-China border in the Trans-Himalayan region of Kinnaur district above 3600 m above sea level altitude in Himachal Pradesh. Nako is the last point of the Kinnaur district if you travel from Sarahan to Spiti Valley and this quaint village is also the most remote village. Nako lies within the restricted area close to the Tibetan border. An Inner Line Permit is required, which is available in Reckong Peo for Rs 150 or Kaza or Shimla for free, and is good for 14 days. The village can be found on the eastern end of the Kinnaur District and is most popular amongst nature lovers and trekkers. While travelling to Malling Nullah, Nako village falls on the way and is, in fact, the last attraction on the way to the final destination.

Nako Lake is a high height lake in the Pooh sub-division of the Kinnaur locale. It is around 3,662 meters 12,014 ft above ocean level. The unusual thing that excites visitors at the lake is the waterfall in which the water that flows appears to be a milky liquid. According to history, one can find the impression of the footprint of the saint Padmasambhava near the lake. Other attraction in Nako is  Lipa- Asrang Sanctuary, which is renowned for its diverse plants.  The most anticipated and most awaited festival celebrated at the Nako Village is Sazo. This festival is celebrated every year in the month of the January. For shopping purpose it is good idea to buy some woollen clothes and Tibetan Buddhist artefacts from the place.
