Checking-in at Sumdo

July 16, 2016.

We are now at #Sumdo. We saw that the #Spiti was joined here by another stream or river, so I asked the amiable guard at the checkpost which river it was, and he said: “Yeh to Parchu river hai, China se aa rahi hai. (This is the #Parchu river from China).”

Sumdo checkpost also marks the district border between #Kinnaur and #Lahaul&Spiti within Himachal Pradesh.
