Nako is located at a height of 3662 m and 117 km from Kalpa. In Hangrang Valley is the largest village above sea level.
It is also famous for Nako Lake which has boating facilities in summer and during winter its frozen surface is used for ice skating. The lake has lost much of its natural beauty as the edges are now cemented with concrete and boulders.
Nako village has both old and new structures and a Buddhist monastery is also located here.
There are a few hotels at Nako but the services and facilities are poor. It is advisable to visit Nako while going to Kaza. A brief stop of one hour is sufficient to cover this village.
