Kunzum Pass (Tibetan: Kunzum La, (el. 4,590 m or 15,060 ft), is a high mountain pass on the eastern Kunzum Range of the Himalayas some 122 km (76 mi) from Manali. It connects the Kullu Valley and Lahaul Valley with the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh, India. There is also a 9 km trek to the Moon Lake of the Chandratal from the Kunzum Pass, where we were to go driving.

The place was amazing and here we were literally surrounded by real snow clad mountains 360 degrees. The interesting part of this place was Kunzum mata temple. There is a iron piece there in the temple. It is believed that if you are true and have clean mind and you wish for something, then if you place a coin on that iron piece the coin sticks to its surface, else it doesn’t. Mine did ;).

It was windy and chilling, and like always the colorful prayer flags added beauty to the place and create life in a place which is white and brown.
