The Wild Road to Yuximolegai La
Yuximolegai Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.438m (11,279ft) above the sea level, located in Nilka County, within the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China. The drive offers stunning mountain views everywhere.
Located in the Yuximolegai Daban, within the Borohoro Range, the road to the summit is paved. It’s called Duku Highway. It was bypassed by a tunnel a few years ago. The climb offers beautiful landscapes. The highway is only open around five months (from May to October) every year due to natural factors such as snow and ice. The road is is restricted for vehicles larger than 7 seats. High risk of mudslides. In summer, you can see a lot of roadside vendors near the pass.
