The road to Gang La: be ready to make room for oncoming vehicles
Gang La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.824m (15,826ft) above the sea level, located in Biru County, the most populated county within Nagqu of the Tibet Autonomous Region, in China.
The road to the summit, also known as Gangli Kundo La, is mostly unpaved. It’s called G317 (China National Highway 317). Open to traffic throughout the year, may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.
The pass is 18.2 km (11.30 miles) long, running west-east from Gangla Daoban to Gangduocun.
