Drive across Zha La pass

Zha La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.086m (16,686ft) above the sea level, located in Biru County, in the eastern Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

Zha La

The road to the summit is mostly unpaved. It’s called 303 Provincial Road (S303). The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. 4x4 vehicle reccomended. Along the road there are several muddy, rough surfaced unlit tunnels to traverse–dripping water and speeding trucks only add to the terror. The pass is 89.1 km long, running west-east from Liangquxiang to Baigaxiang. The pass is the highest point on the 303 Provincial Road.
