Can anyone tell me whether China and India have got any closer to opening a border crossing in the north of uttaranchal? I am planning on travelling to Kailash via Lhasa, then heading to either Nepal or India from Purang in Tibet.

Sounds pretty tricky from what I have researched so far.

hi
sorry...can't be done...there is no official border crossing between India and china except at Lipu-Lekh. Indian Govt. organizes pilgrimage to Kailash- Manasarovar indian citizens only. The route goes thru' Kumaon-Nepal border along KaLI gANGA. So far no foreigner was allowed on this trek.
In Nathu-la, Sikkim, regularly an Indian postman crosses the border and delivers letters. Except this there is no official border crossing.
I suggest you go to Nepal first for crossing into Tibet and onwards into Mainland China with Chinese Visa and documents

A quick rejoinder...
If you are coming from Tibet side, Kodari, Nepal is the best place to cross the border and from there Kathmandu and onwards to India.
Happy travels
