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.
