Jangkhu La

Jangkhu La is a drive worth taking

Jangkhu La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.935m (16,190ft) above the sea level, located in Seni District, within the Nagqu of the Tibet Autonomous Region, southwest China.

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 6% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.

The pass is 37.4 km (23.23 mile) long, running west-east from Kormang to Daqên. Plan about 45 minutes to complete the drive.
