Mana Pass (el. 5,608 m (18,399 ft)), alternatively as Māna La, Chirbitya, Chirbitya-la, or Dungri La is a mountain pass in the Himalayas between India and Tibet. The pass contains the Deotal Lake from which the Saraswati River originates. Mana Pass is located within the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve and lies at the eastern terminus of the Zanskar mountain range, 48 km (30 mi) north of the town of Mana in Uttarakhand. Mana Pass is the source of the Saraswati River, a tributary of the Alaknanda River and t hus of the Ganges. Mana pass is also the key col for Chaukhamba, connecting the mountain to higher ground. Mana as a name derives from Manibhadra Ashram, the ancient name of the town of Mana
Tucked away in the rugged stretches of Himalayan Range in Uttarakhand, Mana Pass alias Dungri La stands out like a winner leading with an example among several competitors. Situated on the border between India and Tibet, the pass is located within the periphery of Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve. Shake off the images of barren landscapes from your mind and leave behind those shaky rides, an expedition to Mana Pass is full of breathtaking sceneries of Uttarakhand. That’s why it is not wrong to call it the most beautiful mountain pass of Indian Himalaya.
But give a break to your biking tour as Mana Pass is not open for civilians. The pass is only used by the Army and ITBP for carrying supplies to border posts. Feeling Sad? Do not worry! Recently, an 11-members team of Free Soul Riders drove all the way to the pass from Delhi via Rudraprayag – Badrinath. The closest settlement from Mana Pass is Mana, situated at a distance of 50 km. Mana village is just 3 km ahead from the iconic Badrinath Dham. Apart from rejoicing every bit of your successful bike tour, Mana Pass also provides eye-catching views of Chaukhamba, a mountain summit of Garhwal Himalayan Range. On the way, drivers can capture the beauty of Deotal Lake.
Note* Special permission is required for a drive to Mana Pass or Dungri La.
