It is a high mountain pass on the eastern Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas

  1. It connects the Kullu Valley with the Lahaul and Spiti Valleys of Himachal PradeshIndia.
  2. The pass provides a natural divide between the Kullu Valley with a primarily Hindu culture (in the south), and the arid high-altitude Lahaul and Spiti valleys with a Buddhist culture (in the north)
  3. The pass lies on the watershed between the Chenab and Beasbasins

The pass is open from May to November. It is not particularly high or difficult to cross on foot by Himalayan standards, but it has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards
