The remote road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle recommended. The pass is 150 km (93 miles) long, running from Gejizhen to Xungba. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. The drive is steep, hitting a 9% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find.
