Bangmeilong Peak

A road with 44 hairpin turns to Bangmeilong Peak

Bangmeilong Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 5.190m (17,027ft) above the sea level, located in Yadong County in the Tibet Autonomous Region, China, near the border with Bhutan. 

Located in Chumbi Valley, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and a 4x4 vehicle is required. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. The summit hosts an astronomical observatory.
Starting from Phari (or Pagri), the road to the peak is extremely curvy, with 44 hairpin turns on the way to the summit, which offers great views of the Himalayas, and the imposing 7.000m high Chomo Lhari peak. The climb is 12,5km long. Over this distance, the average gradient is 7,4% hitting an 11,7% through some of the ramps.
