Penzella Pass lies on the Zanskar Range
at an altitude of about 4,200 m from the sea level. It divides the Zanskar valley
and the Suru Valley. From there one can have spectacular views of the surrounding ranges. There are two springs of greenish water at the upper region of the pass. Camping grounds are also visible on the other side of the pass. At the edge of the pass lies the Penzella glacier
The pass is open from May to September.
It remains closed for the rest of the year due to heavy snowfall.
