A wild road to Quzhong La
Quzhong La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.885m (16,026ft) above the sea level, located in the Nagqu Prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
The road to the summit, also known as Chudrong La, 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 38.3 km (23.79 miles) long, running north-south from G317 (China National Highway 317) to Qagzê.
