Lungzang La

Lungzang La, the road less traveled

Lungzang La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.319m (17,450ft) above the sea level, located in Xaitongmoin County, Shigatse, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

The road to the summit is mostly unpaved with paved sections on the south side. It’s called Qingqu Line. Adverse weather conditions are common. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. The pass is 46.4 km (28.83 miles) long, running north-south from Qingtü to Chabuxiang. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find. The road offers great views of Sholapu Gangri, a peak at 6310masl.
