How To Travel The 412 County Road

412 County Road is the name of a very exciting drive in the heart of Gānnán Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in southern Gansu Province, China.

The road, also known as Locke Road, is totally unpaved. A two-wheel drive SUV is required. The road doesn’t even have any guardrails to protect you. No mobile phone signal. It is 128 km (79.53 miles) long, running south-north from 313 Provincial Road (S313), near Yiwaxiang, to Zhaguluzhen.

Set high in the Dieshan Mountains, the road tops out at 4.018m (13,182ft) above the sea level. 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 named after Joseph Locke, a foreigner who traveled by China in the early 20th century.
