Hi All

I have planned to go from Panong Tso to Tso Moriri on 16th July.

The inquired the hotel owner for permits he replied:

"No use of making permit for Pangong to Tsomoriri via Tsaga-la and Chushul as Army is not allowing to travel on this rout. Yesterday some of our guest went from Pangong to Tsomoriri via Chushul and they are not allowed to travel after showing permit and they came back to leh. We have to do Leh Pangong leh in one day and Leh Tsomoriri, Jespa and manali in 3 Days. For normal permit for visiting Pangong lake and Tsomoriri we can do on arrival as it is very simple, just have to fill the self declaration form and we have to submit at each check point while travelling."


Please let me know what is the latest status of this road, should i change my iternary.

is there any other route to go to Tso Moriri from pangong tso?

Thanks
Pankaj

If you are an Indian citizen, this year no permit is required to go to Pangong Lake or to Tso Moriri.

But the road along Pangong lake past Chushul and over Tsaga La between the lakes has always been much less allowed. It was allowed freely for Indians one year, then closed again, then partially open, and actually I don't know about this year, so your hotelier may be right. It has never been allowed for foreigners at all.

Foreigners still need to make permits beforehand for Pangong etc. Indians now only have to show ID at the checkposts but don't have to make a permit beforehand.

Hi,

Is it the same rules if you are married to an Indian?
cheers

Nope, only to Indian citizens. PIO card holders are still foreigners much like any other.

Chushul-Tsaga La section is very volatile and situation changes there frequently.
Army call the shots at Chushul check post.Even if you have permit for Chushul-Tsaga la-Loma-Tso Morriri,you could still be turned back by army.But no harm in trying.I know a biker who has just returned after doing Pangong-Chushul-Loma route.He didnt face any issue.
If you are not allowed cross Chushul,only option left for Tso moriri is come back to Karu and proceed towards Chumathang-Sumdo-Tso Moriri.You can stay at Chumathang and resume your journey next day for Moriri.No need to come back to Leh.
