Lanma La

Lanma La, one of the toughest tracks in the world

Lanma La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.098m (16,725ft) above the sea level, located in Tingri County, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

The road to the summit is extreme. 4x4 vehicles with high clearance only. It’s a dusty jeep road through barren plains. Located within the Chomolungma Nature Reserve, the road is called 218 Country Road. It’s an alternative route from Everest Base Camp, so less traveled. The surrounding landscape looks a little desolate and rugged. The pass is 54,2 km (33.5 miles) long running north-south, starting from the main road Friendship Highway (G318).
