Travel Guide to the top of Guza La

Located in the Himalaya mountain range, the pass links the villages of Maixiucun and Tongxiama. It is a well paved road, although crumbling higher up. It is totally impassable in winters. 4x4 vehicle with high clearance required. It gets often obstructed by landslides and flooding. 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. Be careful: this road is not for the sissies.
