Rib La

Rib La, an epic enthralling road

Rib La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.760m (15,616ft) above the sea level, located in Lhünzê County in the southeastern Tibet Autonomous Region, China.

The winding road to the summit is steep and narrow. 4x4 vehicle recommended. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery. The route is dangerous. Not recommended to newbies. Along the way you’ll have to deal with some dangerous drop offs.

The pass is 30.9 km (19.20 miles) long, and runs north-south from Legaduo,on the Tsari valley, to Yümai (Yumai). Yumai is a tiny town of 32 inhabitants. It’s said to be China’s smallest ‘township’.
