Nako Lake is situated in a small old-fashioned village of Nako in Kinnaur. It is located at a distance of 2 km from the famous Hangrang Valley. One of the significant features of this lake is that it remains covered with snow for the most part of the year.

The lake is surrounded with four beautiful temples and several trees, which further enhance its beauty. There is also a foot like impression, which according to folklore, is of Guru Padmasambhava, known as the second Buddha by the Nyingma school of Buddhism. One can find animals such as horses and yaks in the region.

The local deity of this region is Deodum, who is worshipped by the natives. The village also serves as a base for trekking to the Pargial Peak and falls on the way to the Thashigang Monastery.
