Haxilegen La is an otherworldly drive

Haxilegen Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.538m (11,607ft) above the sea level, located in Nilka County, within the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China. Before you enter the tunnel, there is a panoramic terrace.

Haxilegen La

Located within the Borohoro Range of Tianshan, the road to the summit is paved. It’s called Duku Highway. It’s the highest point of the road. 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 restricted for vehicles larger than 7 seats. High risk of mudslides. The scenery around the pass is really breathtaking. It is a typical alpine landscape, mixed with mountain tundra.
