Kudi Pass

A paved road to the summit of Kudi Pass

Kudi Daban is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.312m (10,866ft) above the sea level, locared in Kargilik County, in southwest of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China.

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.
