Tra La, a scary and dangerous journey in Tibet
Tra La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.479m (17,975ft) above the sea level, located in Xaitongmoin County, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
The road to the summit is unpaved and very steep. It’s called 201 County Road (X201). 4x4 vehicle required. 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 pass is 49.2 km (30.57 miles) long running north-south from Nadangxiang to Xaitongmoin. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season.
