From here Kinnaur Kailash, considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva, can be seen. As of 2011, it is the second least populous district of Himachal Pradesh (out of 12 districts), after Lahaul and Spiti, in spite of that nine vital languages are spoken in the district.GeneralKinnaur, is about 235km from the state capital, Shimla, located in the northeast corner of Himachal Pradesh bordering Tibet to the east.
