Kudi Pass

The road to the summit is called 219 National Road, also known as Tibet-Xinjiang Highway. Construction of this road started in 1951. It was completed in 1957 and fully paved in 2013. On this road, also known as the "Sky Road" in Chinese, you're firmly on altitudes over 5,000m. For an unacclimatized person this can be fatal. If you're afraid of heights, it's probably best to keep your eyes forward.
