Monda La is one of the highest paved roads on Earth
Monda La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.408m (17,742ft) above the sea level, located in the Nagarzê County of the Tibet Autonomous Region.
Located on the southern Tibetan Plateau, the road to the summit is totally paved with concrete. It's called G219 Highway. It was paved on 2015. It’s very steep, via 18 hairpin turns. The climb hits about 14-15% through some of the corners. The pass is 24.1km (14.97 miles) long, and runs north-south from Longzha to Zharixiang.
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. The road is usually impassable from October to June.
