Driving the wild Tingri-Penjixiang road
The Tingri-Penjixiang mountain road is a very challenging journey in the heart of Tingri County, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
The road is unpaved, with some concrete sections as well. It runs south-north from Tingri (on the G318 road) towards Penjixiang, a small town. The road is 82km (50.95mi) long and passes through many wooden bridges which taxed the nerves of more than a few drivers. It’s totally impassable in winters. Remember this is is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. The road tops out at 5.271m (17,293ft) above the sea level.
