Shangshang La

Shangshang La: recommended for drivers with strong nerves

Shangshang La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.228m (17,152ft) above the sea level, located in Cona County, Shannan, in the south of the Tibet Autonomous Region, People's Republic of China.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle recommended. 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.  Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find. The road is winding and curvy.
