Dingo La

The remote road to Dingo La is not for the faint of heart

Dingo La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.047m (16,558ft) above the sea level, located in Rutog County, in Ngari Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required due its steepness. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. The Austrian zoologist, Erich Zugmayer travelled this pass in 1906. Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor. The road to the summitstarts on the northern shore of Bangong Co lake.
