Numbers of passes have opened in the Spiti Valley to the areas outside. The natural border of this valley with the neighboring areas is formed by watersheds. The valley is landlocked from all the sides. On these watersheds, some passes have linked the Spiti Valley from time immemorial with the surrounding areas of Ladakh, Kinnaur, Lahaul, and Tibet. For understanding areas of Spiti Valley, it is essential to understand the layout of these passes.
