The road to the summit is mostly paved. 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 road is steep, hitting a 7% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
The pass is 49.5 km (30.75 mile) long, running west-northeast from Nagqu (a prefecture-level city in the north of the Chinese autonomous region of Tibet) to Kormang. Plan about 1 hour to complete the drive.
