Dangbe La

Dare to drive the dangerous Dangbe La

Dangbe La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.183m (1,7004ft) above the sea level, located in Xaitongmoin County or Zhetongmön, in Xigazê in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit is unpaved and very steep. It’s called 201 County Road (X201). 4x4 vehicle required. 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. The pass is 34km (21.12 miles) long running from Cuobuxixiang to Nadangxiang. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season.
