Trawo La

A remote road to the summit of Trawo La

Trawo La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.946m (16,227ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of Nyainrong County, under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Nagqu, in the north of the Tibet Autonomous Region and Zadoi County, in the southwest of Qinghai Province, bordering the Tibet Autonomous Region to the south, in China.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. The road is mostly flat. Starting from Denggacun (on X604 Road), the ascent is 25km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 520 meters. The average gradient is 2.08%. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find.
