Spanggur Gap

The road to Spanggur Gap isn’t an easy one

Spanggur Gap is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.308m (14,133ft) above the sea level, located on the border between India (Jammu and Kashmir state) and China.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved and impassable in winters. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. To the east of the gap is the Spanggur Lake. The pass is located on the Line of Actual Control between China and India. During the war of 1962 there were Indian posts in Spanggur Gap, but India later withdrew from here in order to bolster defences of the nearby Indian village of Chushul. China had built a road from Rudok in Tibet right up to the Spanggur Gap capable of carrying tanks.
