Lipulekh Pass

中文 हिन्दी Svenska

Lipulekh (Chinese: 里普列克山口) is a Himalayan pass on the border of India, Nepal and China. It is one of the best routes for the pilgrimage to Mount Kailash And Mansarovar in Tibet, China. This territory was ceded to British India after the Anglo-Gurkha war in 1816 under the Sugauli treaty. In 2020, Nepal suddenly made a claim to this territory under the Prime Ministership of K.P.Sharma Oli understandably at the behest of the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal.
