Currently, the record of being the highest cricket stadium goes to the Chail cricket ground of Solan, at an altitude of 7,380 feet above sea level.

The idea of constructing a stadium was floated by district association of Lahaul-Spiti two years back and now they have obtained NOC from all authorities concerned.

3.2 hectares of land has been earmarked for the stadium. Sissu village is surrounded by a mountain, lake and the Chenab river. The harsh conditions of Lahaul-Spiti may not allow the existence of flora and fauna but the cold desert is looked upon as the ground to host game in coming years.

There are two cricket associations with the same name and the organisation which is planning this stadium is not affiliated to Himachal Pradesh Cricket association.

Which means that they might not get the financial help from BCCI and Himachal Cricket to construct the stadium. They are now depended on crowd-funding in order to pull in cash for the stadium.

President of the association, Surinder Thakur, said that, "We have a very small amount in the bank account but this is not going to stop us from realising the dream." According to him, funds have already started to trickle in.

The heartening thing for the association and cricket lovers of the state is that congress MLA Ravi Thakur has assured that state government would extend all possible financial support to this project. He said that Sissu village is part of Adarsh Gram Yojana and the proposed stadium would be part of it.

The association is also planning to approach top BCCI official and current chief of Himachal cricket association Anurag Thakur for help. The stadium will be made along the lines of iconic stadium at Dharamsala with all modern amenities.
