Cleanest Air in India: Kinnaur District in Himachal Pradesh


The district of Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh is one of the most beautiful places to visit in North India. It is a mountainous area, ranging in altitude from 2,320 to 6,816 meters and one of the smallest districts in India by population.

The place has long been renowned for its natural beauty and a local legend maintains that Kinnaur with all its charms fell from the heavens as a gift from the gods.

Majestic mountains, meandering rivers, green valleys, orchards and vineyards define the valley of Kinnaur. The influence of Tibetan culture is also felt here as it shares its border with Tibet.

An interesting fact about Kinnaur is that a recent study by the Center for Atmospheric Sciences at IIT Delhi revealed that this district has the cleanest air in India. If you’re living in a polluted city and longing to inhale some fresh and clean air without using purifiers, then head to Kinnaur.

It is a paradise for nature lovers and thrill seekers with its idyllic settings, mountaineering expeditions, high-altitude treks, white-water rafting and other activities.
