Assistant Deputy Commissioner’s Office

Permit Office in Kaza

To travel between Sumdo in eastern Spiti and Rekong Peo (Kinnaur), foreign travellers need an inner line permit, issued free in around 20 minutes at Kaza's Assistant Deputy Commissioner’s Office. Bring two passport photos and photocopies of your passport's identity and visa pages, plus application and permit forms (sold for ₹20 at the government canteen outside the office).

The office is in the large white building diagonally opposite the Community Health Centre (hospital). Solo travellers have no problems getting permits here, unlike in Rekong Peo or Shimla.
