Adventure along the wild road to Pe La
Pe La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.136m (16,850ft) above the sea level, located in Ngamring County of Xigazê in the Tibet Autonomous Region, China.
Located north of Riwuqixiang and Yarlung Tsangpo river on the way to Sangsang, the road to the summit is paved. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. 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 is 39.4 km (24.48 miles) long, running north-south from Sangsang, on China National Highway 219 (G219), to Riwuqixiang. If you do choose this route please check up to date information. The road is very steep, hitting a 12% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
