The first inhabited village of the area, Losar lies where the Losar and Peeno streams meet. It is situated at a height of 4,080 m above sea level. This village is located adjacent to the Indo-Chinese border and is the extreme end of the valley, its landscape very much resembling that of Ladakh. Towering and beautiful mountains, picturesque rivers and gorgeous vistas make Losar a must-visit destination for nature-lovers.

Though it is unexplored, the village has shops, schools, a post office and a health centre, serving to the convenience of those visiting it. Another attraction nearby is the Chandratal or the Moon Lake, where one can get even more lovely views. To reach the moon lake, one has to cross the Kunzum Pass. The best time to visit Losar is between July and September.
