Tug La

Travel guide to the top of Tug La

Tug La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.209m (17,089ft) above the sea level, located in Nagarzê County, in the south-east of the Tibet Autonomous Region, in China. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. 

Located to the north of Puma Yumco Lake, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called 301 County Road (X301). The road is 43.2km (26.84 miles) long running from Pumajiangtangxiang to Degai. Be cautious: it’s a cliff road with dangerous drop offs. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor.
