Mountain Passes in India

mountain pass is a route through a mountain range or over a ridge. If following the lowest possible route, a pass is locally the highest point on that route.
Since many of the world's mountain ranges have presented formidable barriers to travel, passes have been important since before recorded history, and have played a key role in trade, war, and migration.
At lower elevations it may be called a hill pass.
The highest pass is Thorong La located in the Damodar Himal, north of the Annapurna range, Nepal.
Nathu La is a mountain pass in the Himalayas. It connects the Indian state of Sikkim with China's Tibet Autonomous Region.
Karakoram Pass is between India and China.
