Par La, recommended for drivers with strong nerves
Par La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.578m (18,300ft) above the sea level, located in Zhongba County of Xigazê Prefecture in China's Tibet Autonomous Region. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road to the summit, also known as Yu La, is totally unpaved. It’s called Zhonglong Highway. If you're afraid of heights, it's probably best to keep your eyes forward. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. The pass is 92.8 km (57.66 miles) long, running from G219 towards Buduoxiang. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find.
