Lake Jiabucuo

Lake Jiabucuo is an otherworldly drive

Lake Jiabucuo is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 5.248m (17,217ft) above the sea level, located in the Tibet Autonomous Region, bordering India's Sikkim state to the south.

Located in the Himalayas mountain range, the road to the lake is unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required. The road is totally impassable in winters. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor. It’s one of the highest lakes in the world. Starting from Ji Gangzuosha, a small village, the road is 20km long.
