    Option 3 is the right answer.

    Shipki La is a mountain pass and border post on the India-Tibet border. The river Sutlej enters India (from Tibet) through this pass. It is an offshoot of the ancient Silk Road. It is located in Kinnaur district in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India, and Tibet.
    Currently, the border is used only for small-scale local trade across the border. Like other border passes along the India-Tibet border, the border is no longer open for non-residents. Most people travelling between India and Tibet by land travel via Nepal.
