Restful Rekong Peo

When I first laid my eyes on the  rural looking Rekong Peo, its ravishing beauty took my breath away. We had driven through apple country, where the apple blossoms were in full bloom. Rekong Peo is the headquarters of the Kinnaur district of the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh.It was named Rekong Peo in honour of a family which owned most of the land there. With its rustic beauty, Rekong Peo is the right place for a restful holiday.
 Apple is the life of the people of Kinnaur. The blooms have fruited, and the markets of all the cities and villages of India, including  my city 3000km away from Rekong Peo, are filled with delicious apples now.

 The Kinner Kailash peak is seen from all parts of the town. Many people go round the peak braving rough terrain and fickle weather.
My thanks to Mrs.Nesbitt and Roger for the really wonderful ABCWednesday.
