Lumu La

Nice curves on the way to Lumu La

Lumu La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.797m (15,738ft) above the sea level, located in Sichuan, in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of China.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved and very curvy. It’s called Ganbai Road. 4x4 vehicle recommended. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find.
The area is pretty remote. The pass is 47.0 km (29.2 miles) long, running from Yinduoxiang (Xinlong County, Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan) to Galaxiang (Garzê County, Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan) on the G317 Road.
