Places of Interest in Lahaul Spiti - Himachal Pradesh

Kunzam Pass or Kunzum Pass

Kunzam Pass, Lahaul-Spiti, HimachalKunzam Pass At 4551m, this is the pass that connects the spiti and Lahaul subdivisions of the district. This pass is situated at 60 kms from Gamphu on the Gramphu-Kaza-Sumdo road. It provides chief access to the Spiti-valley from Lahaul which is separated from the Spiti valley by the great Kunzom range, and from where the Spiti, pronounced Piti, the chief river of the area takes its source. Though higher than the Rohtang Pass, Kunzam is safer and provides easier ascent and descent.

As Rohtang pass is a gateway to Lahaul so Kunzum pass is the gateway to Spiti from Kullu & Lahaul. After crossing Rohtang pass and driving 20kms, one has to turn right from Gramphoo or Gramphu. While going to this pass, the panoramic view of Bara-Sigri glacier (second longest glacier in the world) is enthrilling and inspiring. The crest of the pass has been marked by a chorten of stones erected ages ago.
