Direct access between Kullu and Spiti has traditionally only been possible over one pass, the famous Pin Parvati Pass (5319m), which can be tricky to locate and takes approximately 14 days. An expedition was mounted in 1992 to follow up reports from the 1950s that a route via the Debsa glacier might be possible. Access to the Debsa proved more difficult than expected, and a second atempt in 1993 attempted to reach the Debsa from Parvati, and so enter the Spiti valley through Parahio. They ran out of time to complete their objective but returned to the area again in 1995. Although floods forced them to alter their plans they managed to travel from Manikaran to Kaja, and so hope to have found an alternative route that the people of Kullu and Spiti can use to transport goods from one area to another.
