Every Rider when traveling on a Spiti circuit wonders whether he would be able to touch Indo - China Border at Shipki La Pass, when he sees the Map that Indo China Border is very near to Pooh, Nako or Kinnaur but when all do some deep dwelling on how to reach Shipki La Pass Sino India border then they meet only disappointed and some common answers like - "No foreigner other than Indian National is allowed", After reading this sentence Indians feel that they would be able to visit then.. Wow, but to their sheer disappointment another answer is " If you are an Indian National, you need a permit to visit Shipki La Pass" and this Permit is really very difficult to get if you don't have real strong purpose of visiting the Pass and that is why Thousands of riders do Spiti Circuit but very very few actually traverse through Shipki La Pass and touch India China Border near Tibet.


But when one reaches Shipki La Pass, one could see Chinese region and Shipki Village in Tibet. Due to this untouched area, you don't see many pictures of the area on the web.

The Special Permit is given only to the local traders to go to Shipki La Pass to do cross border trade and Shipki La Pass is one of the three main Passes between India and China.

The main 3 passes between Tibet and India are:

1. Shipki La pass, located between Himachal Pradesh, India and Ngari prefecture, Tibet

2. Lipulekh pass, located between Uttarkhand, India and Ngari prefecture, Tibet

3. Nathu La pass, located between Sikkim, India and Shigatse prefecture, Tibet

There is no way you can travel from India to Tibet or Vice Versa directly and this has to be done through Nepal, only option.

So, if you are riding on a Spiti Circuit, just stop near Puh or Nako and tell your mind that you are very close to Shipkila Pass and are very close of touching India China Border but don't waste time in trying to get permit, if you are a normal civilian rider with no special cause.
